WCW

Happy hump day... yeah for getting halfway through this week!

I don't know why I'm so excited, it's not like I have this weekend off or anything but for some reason I just want to get through this one and on with different things. Maybe some of it has to do with the new stamp releases coming up and more sneak peek candies to give away... it feels like it's been forever! So yea, fun things to look forward to here soon... I promise! ;)

Today I've got a card for Lysa's farewell Wild Card Wednesday challenge over at the CA&Friends blog and it's a cool one! Lysa picked out a beautiful picture of some throw pillows to be inspired by and I totally ran with the color scheme of them. That and all the fab stitching they featured. :)
I also tried out a new to me skin color combo as I wanted Gigi to look like she had a sun tan. I don't know if I was 100% successful... she might look more sun burned than sun tanned but I still went with it, LOL!

Don't forget to join the challenge fun... you never know, you just might be the lucky winner of a TGF digi! :)

TTFN!

fabulous job with the new skin color. she looks like she got sunburned but now has turned to a nice golden tan. =) super fun card!

aussiescrapper said...

Gigi is just gorgeous and now with a fantastic tan she looks awesome, I am so inspired by the fact you can find inspiration in some throw pillows...I just don't seem to have that creative flair.

RiNNE said...

I think that Gigi looks wonderfully as a blond and her tan is excellent! Your coloring, as always, is superb! Can't wait to see the new sneak peeks and releases! Happy hump day to you too! My hump was especially high this week..hope it wasn't the same for ya!

MicheyMoo said...

I'm so in awe of how you manage to mix up your layers and colours and pull them altogether to create a masterpiece Miss Amy. I give praise and hope that when I 'grow up' I can do it too. ;)

Seriously, Gigi isn't even lost amongst all that's going on there - she's divine - I love, love, love the blonde hair!!

Totally writing the hair color #'s down. I really like how it looks. Gigi does look a little "sun-kissed", but I think she turned out marvelous! The card is so bright and cheery!
