Color Throwdown #42 and Stamps and Smiles Sketch #15
This is my first card using a Color Throwdown challenge and I chose to combine it with the Stamps and Smiles sketch for this week. AND... I nervously coloured in my first Sugar Nellie Gorjuss stamped image that was sent to me by a very talented lady named Karen. She sent me a bunch of images but I didn't want to take the chance of ruining any of them so I was relieved that my first colouring attempt turned out okay. I also referred to the card she sent along as well for inspiration. You should really have a look at her blog to see all the wonderful work she does.
The turquoise paper is DCWV. The stamped sentiment is from Dollarama. I used a Fiskars daisy punch for the border and added some Prima flowers as embellishment. And for the colouring, I used my Prisma Colour pencil crayons. I will probably use this card to give to my sister-in-law for her birthday which is in a few weeks. I think she'll like it since she seems to like anything "girly."
