What Can I Say...

I am a total challenge stalker. I was just about to give up and go to bed when I saw that Emily had posted the color challenge over on SCS. Thankfully, this weeks combo didn't leave me with an upset stomach like last week(glorious green-gag!!). Today's combo was to use Basic Gray, Blush Blossom, and Groovy Guava, now that I can do. This card came together relatively fast for me. I got my new oval Nestabilities on Saturday, and I have been having a blast using them. I used them tonight to cut out my Sophia from the Cuddle Me set by Paper Pretties. I stamped her in Black Stazon on Whisper White and layered it with Groovy Guava and Blush Blossom. The panel under the main image is the same colors plus a piece of Whisper White that I ran through the Cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. Do you ever stop and wonder how we survived before the Cuttlebug?? I do, and I seriously want to send a big THANKS out to the person who invented the Nestabilities, pure genius!! Anyway, the image was colored in with my SU markers and ink pads. I used an aquapainter and blender pen. After I was done, I covered the dress with Perfect Pearls by Ranger, they really add a beautiful shimmer. I stamped the sentiment with Basic Gray ink and put three silver brads in each corner. I am obsessed with ribbon and brads, so of course, I tied two pieces of gray taffeta ribbon and one piece of guava around the middle strip. That's it for me now, I will be back tomorrow with more, once I get all my shopping done. I am about to go over 10,000 hits on my blog, so I think some CANDY is in order!!! I will have more info tomorrow!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
