A little note to say...

Hey there!

It's the second Wednesday of the new month and that means it's time for the August 'anything goes' challenge over on the 7 Kids challenge blog. Playing along is easy, all you have to do is use at least one product that can be found in the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and link back to the challenge blog in your own post, which gives you a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate at the end of the month... who doesn't love that?
The 7 Kids DT is being sponsored by Cas-ual Fridays and Vilda Stamps this month so for my challenge inspiration card I inked up the Pretty Posies from Cas-ual Fridays in Memento angel pink so that I could do some soft and pretty no-line coloring. I stamped a variety of blossoms and leaves around the bottom and side of the card front, masking as I went so they would overlap in a natural way. That left me with a lot of open space that I knew I wanted to fill with some kind of happy character that would fit with the sentiment I was using. As I searched through my stash of stamps, none were fitting in the way I imagined. Bummed but undeterred I decided to get brave and use my Copics to sketch in the fairy I knew was living in this magical garden. It was nerve wracking after having put in all that time coloring already, I really didn't want to mess it all up! Luckily she came to life fairly quickly and I was able to breath a sigh of relief. I don't stamp and color flowers very often but these Pretty Posies set such a lovely scene that I can see myself playing with more on future cards.  :) 

Alrighty, I hope to see some of my crafty friends joining the fun with me this month over at 7 Kids!   :)
