All Grown Up

Well Almost…

I have to admit when I say the color challenge at Tiddly Inks I thought it was a tough one, so much so in fact that I didn’t even consider playing along the first week of the challenge.  I was rummaging through my stack of designer paper looking for a dinosaur print I could have sworn I had (never did find it) when I stumbled across this paper Paper Salon I totally forgot I had and let’s just say it is PERFECT for this color challenge.  Okay, now I want to play.

Challenge 76 SketchI decided to use the sketch from 2 Sisters, I had my Tiddly Ink digi stamp colored so I needed a layout that allowed for a vertical image and this sketch works beautifully!

Rather than mat the image, I chose to add a few squiggles here and there to make a border around the outer edge of the diecut image.

I used an EK Success border punch, topped it with a swiss-dotted PTI ribbon.  I diecut a felt flower for the center embellishment left the other two with just the paper flower topped with a button brad.  I originally had three felt flowers diecut but they over-powered the card.  The sentiment was made using my computer and printed out.

As a side note – one of my brothers was in a serious motorcycle accident yesterday.  He was badly injured but he is home.  Unfortunately, his girlfriend that was a passenger was killed instantly.  Please say a prayer for them!

Thanks for stopping by!  Dee
