All Dressed Up

Hello there! I hope everyone out there in blogland is having a good day. The weather here in California is wonderful today and has me in a good mood.

I made this card for the sketch challenge at SCS today. I usually like the color challenges and struggle with the sketch challenges, but this week it was just the opposite. This one came together rather quickly and I am still grimacing over yesterday's.

I used the dress from Retro Boutique (Gina K Designs) and stamped it with the strawberries from Summer Harvest, then colored it with Bic Markers. There is some more of the Mocha Chica DP, with sponged edges. I used my Floral Fantasy cuttlebug folder and inked the negative side for the So Saffron panel.

Hope your day is a good one!

The card is really pretty. I wonder if the lighting affects the colors. It looks like you used the same colors for the last two cards. They both turned out so pretty too!

The strips of paper with the brads are a great embellishment. I can't believe you colored this with bic markers! As usual I love all the sponging around the edges. Nice coloring and shading on the dress!!
