Just because

Hi!  I made a card to enter into a couple of challenges--Lily Pad Cards and the first challenge over at Young Crafters Unite!  It's the first time I'm entering their challenges. 

So YCU's first challenge is to color a stamped image.  I used my Copics to color in my image.  It's a month long challenge so still lots of time to enter.

Lily Pad Cards has a sketch challenge sponsored by The Greeting Farm so I had to participate since I love TGF stamps.

My card features TGF's Blush Babette.  I love her long, flowy hair.  Though if I had hair like that I'd probably wanna chop it off.  I haven't had long hair since I had my daughter and sometimes I miss it but I don't have the patience to grow it out.  The sentiment comes with the stamp though the banner is from Lawn Fawn.  I also used TGF's Blush Hello for the background on the lacey oval behind Babette.  I love the paper from Authentique.  I kind of splurged and got a whole bunch of papers from them--they are so pretty!  The little swirly die cut is from My Favorite Things.  I spritz that, the flowers and the black corners with some glitter, and added rhinestones.  Babette also has some stickles on her dress.  I like how this card came out and my hubby took such a nice photo of it.

It's back to school tomorrow for the kiddies and I'm wondering what I should do tomorrow.  Finish my 4 loads of laundry, I guess.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

What a pretty card! Beautiful hair! The dress and stockings look fabulous too! Are you sure you didn't take the copic class already? You got lacey ovals too?! The swirl is pretty, love the color combo.

Oh wow, your coloring is so gorgeous! I'm still working on learning how to do hair, so I really enjoy seeing how others do it. Love all the pretty layers and texture... the scalloped oval especially. Thank you for playing along with us at the first Young Crafters Unite challenge!
