InStyle Stamps Color Challenge

This is my second post for the day.

This week InStyle Stamps has a color challenge over at Club Anime.

We were given the following photo for our inspiration ~ isn't this bead work just gorgeous!?!

And here is my card:
For my card I used Tricia and Renee ~ they remind me of my two daughters, so I had to color the hair accordingly.  The image was colored with copics and I used the blender pen to add a pattern to the skirt.  The DP was just white and green, but I colored in the flowers and the leaves to add a bit more color.  The ribbon is actually two different ribbons ~ I hand stitched the ric rac trim onto the grosgrain ribbon to add a bit more green into my card.  The flower was hand made by me out of some scrap fabric and I just added a few buttons in the center.   While working on this color challenge I discovered that I don't have much in the line of green Designer papers unless I want to make a Christmas card.....hmmm I think I need to work on that!

Be sure to stop on by the rest of the team to see what they made using these colors and while you're visiting them, be sure to leave them some love.   

We would love to have you join our color challenge.  Just stop by the InStyle Stamps blog for all the details.

Jodi, love the bead work picture that you had to take your inspiration from and you did such a beautiful job on your card. That image is so darling (so are your kids in the banner pic). Your coloring is awesome and you nailed the sketch. Welcome to the Midnight Madness Challenge this week. Hope to see you back again and again so we can see what you're creating.
