4 Crafty Chicks - Use PINS

Good morning!  I just can't believe it is August already!  This summer has just flown by!  Life is a busy as always but it seems to be in a good way.  As most of you know, I have became a Consultant for Close To My Heart paper crafting supplies.  I am very excited about this new journey I am on and can't wait to really get the ball rolling and see where it takes me!  Right now I am mainly in the planning stages, getting ready for a big launch party to kick things off.  Thanks to my wonderful Dad for all of his help in creating a great display!  So, be sure to watch for further details and expect to see lots of changes to my blog in the next few weeks!
Ok, so on to today's post. First off I want to thank everyone who entered our Crazy Egg Anything Goes challenge last week!  Wow! What an amazing turnout! And what wonderful creations!   We are kicking off a new month at 4 Crafty Chicks with the wonderful and talented Leann hosting our challenge.  Leann has challenged us to use pins on our creations.  Now, I bought a couple of packages of pins at the last CK Convention I went to last Spring but had not used them. So, I pulled them out and looked at them.  Huh, what was I going to do with these?!?  So here we go:  I colored this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil using both Spectrum Noir and Copic markers.  I made her kind of big (5in) and cut her out.  My paper came from the Confetti Wishes collection from Close To My Heart as well as the flowers that I made to match the card.  Ribbon from my stash and then to just stick the heart shaped pins in!  It was really a simple card to make even though the pins kind of challenged me!  

Here is a close up of the flowers and the pins.

And of course a close up of this darling image:
