Color My World

Hello friends and a Happy Thursday! Wow where has the week gone, can't believe it's Thursday already! Today it is going to be a very hot day here so I have to get all my chores and errands done early and will keep this post short. My card today shows another super cute image from the very talented Elisabeth Bell. This one is available through Susanas Custom Art and Card Designs and it's called 'Little Suzanne'. This is also my entry for the SCACD Try it out Tuesday challenge which is a sketch this week.

I colored my image using Copics (a picture of Copics used is at the end of the posting). DP is from Basic Greys new collection Chapelle and my CS is Martha Stewart. The beautiful fabric flower on top of my ribbon is one of the gorgeous embellies that were included in the candy I won recently from Elise  :-) and now she is one of my new DT sisters at Belles 'n Whistles...YAY! For the corner decorations I used a Cuttlebug die and glossy CS.  The Spellinders die I used is one of the newer ones called Big Scalloped Oval. To get this layred look I cut out the same size 3 times using different papers. On one I stamped my image and the other two I cut in half and just staggered them behind the first one. Hope you like my play on the sketch.
