Sketch Saturday # 45 and Copic Colour Challenge # 7.....You Make Me Happy!!!!

Hey!!! Sorry, I haven't been around to visit much this weekend! I will do so later today! Yesterday, I wasn't feelin' so great! It rained all day and the day before and the low barometric pressure is a major migraine trigger for me! So, Yesterday I was pretty much out of commission and today I spent all flippin' day makin' this card...uuuggghh!

I debated if I should even post this card or not cuz I'm not that happy with it and I'm just not sure why...something's missing!!! But after all that work, I thought, what the heck!!! So, here it is!!! I made it for this week's challenge over at Sketch Saturday #45 and for the Copic Colour Challenge #7!

I loved this fabby sketch from the minute I laid eyes on it! It is by the fabulous and talented, Tracie, AKA, pinkangel! I got a good chuckle when I read that she even made sure that her sketch was pink, smile!!! Love this sketch, Tracie!!! I will definitely use it again!!! I also, played along with the challenge over at Copic Colour Challenge. This week, the colours are Light Prawn R22, Dark Brown E47 & Ice Blue B12!!! Another awesome colour combo!!! I think I'm going to get a little note book and start writing the great Copic colour combos down, so, that I will be able to use them again on future creations!!!

for this card I made my card base 6x6 from American Crafts Damask embossed cardstock and used Imaginisce Twitterpated paper. I used my Curvy rectangle Nesties to cut the mats for the main image. My friend Shannon let me stamp some of her Magnolia images a while back. So, I had the Old Stand from the Sea Collection in my images folder. I stamped on the Magnolia grass along the bottom and cut out the stand. I then Stamped Tilda on Georgia Pacific paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the cute little WOJ butterfly. I coloured everything with my Copics and used Twinkling H20s to add some twinkle and to dirty up Tilda's overalls.

I cut the scalloped "apron lace" border on my Silhouette...I think you are going to be seeing a lot of this border...I just love it! I used some America Crafts ribbon from my stash that matched my cardstock perfectly! I added the large Prima flower with leaves already attached and a few Primas here and there and Shimmerized everything,smile! The sentiment is a Quickutz rub-on!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek and for leaving me such sweet comments! I really do appreciate them...it definitely makes me happy!!!! Now, I'm off to put the kettle on and have a wee blog hop!

Have a great week friends!!!

Hi Tara, Sorry to hear you have not been feeling too well. Hope you feel much better soon
Love your card... can't make out what you are not happy with? I've got a pack of those patterned papers... might just have to open it and , dare I say, use it (tee hee, I'm so silly)
Have fun blog hopping!

Hey T!
Love your card and you're right, the colours are great together! Good idea to write things down too, we never remember otherwise, hee hee!
So sorry you have been poorly - it's so frustrating to be out of action isn't it? I had cluster migraines for three days last month and it was awful. Hope you feel better soon hunny ;o) xx
