Blogger Challenge 2

Today I am showcasing a card I made for our second blogger challenge with some super talented ladies, in which I hosted this time. Adelina, Angel, Bethany, Lori, and Tracy are also be sure to check their blogs to see their awesome cards.

I waited until the very last minute to make this, so it was very late last night when I finished. Needless to say...I totally forgot about the hardware items I had sent to everyone, so I didn't include any of it on my card. Sorry ladies!

I used my Hit The Beach stamps that I'd won from Taylor, to stamp the images for this card. The sentiment is created with my Karen Foster Mini Casual Snap Stamps. The patterned paper is from Storytime by Cosmo Cricket.

When it was time to color the images, I realized the colors I wanted to use from the patterned paper...were a bit off SU colors. I used a palette to blend colors from my markers together, and painted with my Aqua Painter.

The little hat was hand drawn, then cut and mounted with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today!
