Soakin' Queen

It is really late, but when I saw today’s color challenge, I HAD to stay up and make something with it. Emily is celebrating the soon to be retiring in colors by featuring one in each color challenge up until they leave us for good, soooo sad!! In today’s challenge she actually picked two-Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi, and paired them with Certainly Celery. I LOVE IT!!! Isn’t this Sophie cute?? This set is by Paper Prettiesand is called Soakin Up the Sun. It has some more super cute sayings and accessories besides what you see here. It is being released tonight(Tuesday July 1st) in the Paper Pretties forum at 7pm CST. Charmaine will be posting a challenge every hour and there will be prizes not to mention new stamps and some great conversation!! Be sure to join us, we would love to see you there!! For my card, I used last weeks sketch challenge which I loved. I stamped my Sophie on white cardstock with Black ink. I then used my markers, aqua painter and re-inkers to color her in. I added some glitter to the flower on her suit and colored her sunglasses, the dogs collar, and the straw with my silver pen. The circles were made with my circle nesties and I sponged the sky and sand on the smallest circle with Soft Sky for the sky and Creamy Carmel for the sand. I cut out Sophie, the dogs drink(isn’t that too funny), and Sophies slippers and glued them all on. I added some silver clips with ribbon on them and put some white brads in the four corners. The last thing I added was my sentiment, doesn’t it ROCK!! I sooo want to be her right now!! That’s it for me today, be sure to come to the Paper Pretties Stampin in Your Jammies party, it is sure to be a TON OF FUN!!
