Color Throwdown Challenge #198


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!
The lovely and oh sooo talented  Kerri is the hostess this week and she has some bright, summery colors for us to create with!! 
  

It's been forever since I inked up a little Pure Innocence Girl from My Favorite Things...this set is called Make Mine a Double. She was colored with Copics and her dress, ice cream, and shoes were paper pieced. I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #161, the papers are from Basic Grey's Konnichiea dp, and the rolled flower dies from My Favorite Things were used for the felt flowers. The sentiment is from the same set and the twine, pearls, and sewing finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Crafty Cardmakers - make your own flowers
2. Use Your Stuff - stitching
3. Pile it On - make your own embellishments (flowers)
4. Paper Play Challenge - use a die


Be sure to add CTD198 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
