Sassy Cheryl Time - Color Combo

For our challenge this week, hostess Sassy Jeni set the theme with a color combo of "Light Blue & Brown"... another one of my favs.  Truth be told, I would rather work on a color combo challenge than a sketch challenge any day.. how 'bout you?  Out of curiosity, what's your favorite type of challenge?

I haven't colored this cheerful little cutie digi from Sassy Cheryl ("I Love You This Much") in a while and she seems to be a favorite amongst my friends. You just can't help but smile when you see her and there's so many sentiments you could conjure up to go with her expression. Since I never seem to have enough birthday cards around when I need them, what better time than now to get ahead a bit and Sassy Jeni's challenge theme was the perfect excuse.



Everything about my card, with the exception of the kraft card base, was pulled from my ever-growing scrap pile. Using a square nesties, I did the 'out of the box' technique around this little sweetie, added a bit of embossing, and all of the papers were antiqued with Tim Holtz distressed inks. I must have been in a bit of a polka dot mood!

Stop by and join us in the Sassy Cheryl challenge this week and see what the design team created for Jeni's challenge. We have a great time and lots of fun people that join us. We're gearing up for a celebration of 100 challenges next week. You won't want to miss it.

I'm also entering this in these challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. Have a terrific day and I'll see you later this week.

I agree, a colour challenge is far more 'me' than a sketch challenge. I saw this on Make It Monday - absolutely darling card.
