My Time to Create Colour Challenge!!!

I've managed a challenge this week, woooo hoooooo!!! Lauren Meader's My Time To Create Colour Challenge. Boy was it fun too :) Truth be told, 3 of my 4 children have birthdays in September so I needed a few cards and well, I saw these colours and I just LOVE them! These are actually some of my favorites of all time and I use them whenever possible and so honestly, it wasn't a hard challenge for me, but fun. Here's the colour pic...

and my submission... Please note that I've never done a colour challenge before so I'm not sure if there's any kind of leeway to veer off the colours slightly, but I hope that this is okay?!!! I tried to stay within the spirit of the colours :) Also, my fairy's dress is more red than it looks (Copic - Strong Red)!!!

Card Deets:
  • Image from The Character Cafe "Fairy Belle" coloured with Copics, misc. stars stamp, Gina K Sentiment (inside)
  • Paper: Bazzil cardstock, K&Company Classic McKenna, Wassau
  • Embellishments: Nesties, Basic Grey Glazed brad
  • Other Details: Handwritten Sentiment, Sakura Glitter pens, distressing

On another note.... I also made my son a card too (it's one of my favs now I think!!!), but I'm going to go post it over at The Cafe Blog for a bit of inspiration while announcing our new Design Team!!!! Head over there and check it out if you've got a minute :)

Well, that's it for today,
Happy Crafting!
