Not My Fault!

*****I WAS PICKED TOP 3*****


I wrote that I was done, done, done with challenges for the 2012 calendar year... DONE! Well... no one told my pals! ;) I had a friend show me the Whimsie Doodles blog and pointed out they were having a challenge. At first I was like, no thank you, I'm all challenged out... but then I went to the Whimsie Doodle shop and $21 later... I came up with a new card! :-\ It's OK... it was some of my Christmas stash... but at this rate... I'll not EVER be able to buy the Spectrum Noir marker set I was wanting! :-D 

So first, the challenge is one I've not tried before because in the past, I am intimidated by the idea. It was a color challenge... 8-O Yes! These are the colors... 

Then, I needed to use a Whimsie Doodle image. That was a tough choice... I had just bought myself a handful of images but deciding which one to color first was a CHALLENGE! :) I finally decided on the Social Teen Texting (you'll have to scroll down the page... I can't get a direct link) and I am rather pleased at how she came out:

Don't you just LOVE her hair?!? Don't let the skirt colors fool you! She's NOT a Packer fan... this is a color challenge, remember? I would not ever dress any of my children in ugly colors! ;) She's not done yet though... the image needs to be a card for the Whimsie Doodle challenge and so I finished with this:

So the card stock and ribbon are from my stash. I used Spellbinders scalloped circle nestabilities and labels. The printed paper is Make Merry - Celebrate by Michelle Coleman from Fancy Pants Designs. 

I think it works! It has the colors... it's fun... it's hip... it's stylin'... it's today's youth! :)
