Color me Late

Well I rushed home from work to hurriedly finish the card I was making for Stef's color challenge this week. got it finished, snapped a picture, uploaded it, and I must have crossed paths with Stef just leaving from posting the new color challenge because there were the new colors for this week. Oh well, even though I was late for the challenge I had fun making the card.

(click to enlarge)

I have been wanting to CASE this card that Pat Smether's has in her gallery on Splitcoast Stampers for a while now, and I thought Mia would be perfect for it. So, I opened Mia and Bosko up in my photo editing program and cut Bosko out of the picture. Then I had to draw part of her right boot, so don't look too closely at that boot!

I colored everything with copic markers and stamped the leaves from a Stampin Up set called Best Blossoms on to the circle. Little turquoise prima flowers with pearl centers finished that part off. The designer paper is from Carolyn Gavin.

If you want to join in this week's color challenge just head over to Card Universe ! This week her colors are purple, bright yellow, and green.

Mark your calendars now for this Saturday's digi day! It starts at 7pm central time at the card universe HERE. We will be having a pajama party with fun games and lots of prizes! I really hope you'll come!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by today!

Well I was late too...matter of fact, I didn't even make it! :( By the time I found the colors needed in my stash, I'd committed to watch the lil baby next door. I can never turn an opportunity like that down! So I'll just get it in gear for this next one!

I LOVE this card, Holly! You did an AWESOME job on Mia, and the leaves and flowers in the circle look FABULOUS! This is such a cool layout! It's amazing how the brown makes everything pop! FANTASTIC job! :)

Well it looks like I won't be able to make it to the Pajama party... Sara and I have had this weekend planned to go to Tunica to celebrate her 21st birthday since we didn't get to go back in Dec. But I know you'll all have a blast, especially with all the games and hilarious conversation! It's always a fun-filled night when SF throws a party! ;) I really hate to miss it!

Looks like we are gonna have a heat wave today...low 50s! Too bad Riley and Ms Molly can't get together for some fun and games!

Adorable Mia card Holly! I love polka dot ribbon, it's the perfect touch here!!

I recognized your leaves from Best Blossoms, it's a classic and I find myself using the leaf stamp the most! :)

Have a super day!
Blessings, Maria
