Two Challenges in One

Hey there! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, mine was good but busy. We went out looking at computers on Saturday. I think we went to about every store that sells computers to price the same one out. We did a lot of running around, but I think we've found one that we like, we just need to go and get it now.

I've been busy at my craft table whittling away at some cards to post this week! My card today combines two challenges. The first challenge being Dawn McVey's very first color challenge called Raspberry Suite Color Challenge Week 1. Dawn's cards are always so fun, bright and cheery and I couldn't wait to get started on the color challenge! :D The sketch is Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #10.

Sophia was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink onto White Daisy CS. I then colored her with my Copics and cut her out with my Rectangle Nesties. I matted her onto a piece of Bazzill Bitter Chocolate CS and added a couple of Primas. I used some more paper from the DCWV Citrus pack...it's slowly becoming my new favorite! I also did some stitching and added three different sizes of CTMH White Daisy brads.

Well that's it for me today...it's back to another week of work! :) I wish I had another day off just to recuperate from my busy weekend...LOL!!! Take care and have a fabulous day!!! ~ Jenn

Stamps: Cuddle Me Sophia (Paper Pretties) Paper: DCWV Citrus Pack, Bazzill Bitter Chocolate CS & White Daisy & Watermelon CS (CTMH) Ink: Cocoa Ink (CTMH), Brilliance Graphite Black Ink & Copics Accents: White Daisy Bigger & Bitty Brads (CTMH), Rectangle Nestabilities, Janome Sew Mini, Primas, Corner Rounder & Pop Dots
