(The challenge was up on time; it's just me & my card that's late!)
I am loving the warmer weather and the sunshine and wouldn't you know it - this challenge is sponsored by:
and the theme is SUMMER COLOR INSPIRATION.
Love the muted colors. The sun has a lovely way of washing out color, doesn't it? And wouldn't you love to be sitting in this picture with a cool drink? Ahhh...
Here's my card, using Circus Trixie. Love her. I'm already working on some ideas on how to use her on another project...on the 'after move' list, of course! My colors aren't exactly the same tone, but I had to make do with what I had on hand...I'd say I did okay: bluegreens, orange, cream/yellow.
Hair: BG000, BG10, BG72, BV34
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress: YR31, Y17, R81, R85, RV55
Hoop: V17, V22, V25
Missing my embellishment stash, and would have used a few star brads, buttons, twine...something. I did use fun trim and glitter. This is definitely CAS for me, but I like this card.
This is part of a couple of sentiment stamps (stars and words are from different stamps.) I used a marker to ink up the words I wanted to use.
Love this mini pompom trim - too cute!
Okay...felt so nice to do a bit of coloring! I didn't want to stop...packing up the rest of the house this week. That means 2 weeks of no crafting! No inks, no papers, nada, zero, zip, zilch...you get the idea?
Think of me while you make stuff...can't wait to see what you create!
