4-H project and a Sympathy card

As promised, here is a picture of Allie (8) wearing her skirt that she made for 4-H. She also made the purse. Her headband matches (hard to tell in the picture) her skirt. Judging is next monday for sewing.



I needed a sympathy card so I used the color challenge and Julee's Mojo Monday sketch to make a quick card. Color challenge was chocolate chip, barely banana and groovy guava. I love this combo!

I used SU's Close As a Memory and Warmest Regards. I left off one of the flower by inking up only half the stamp with the groovy guava pad, using the aquapainter to take the ink off where i did not want it and then going over the stems with the chocolate chip marker. I also used just the flowers on the Barely Banana cardstock by inking up just the flowers with Barely Banana marker. Around the image I distressed with inks by sponging on barely banana first, then groovy guava and then just around the edges I used Choclate Chip.

stamp: SU Close As a Memory, Warmest Regards; paper: chocolate chip, groovy guava, barely banana, white; ink: groovy guava; accs: markers - chocolate chip & barely banana, white gel pen, hodgepodge hardware, polytwill ribbon, sponge, corner round punch (for scallops)

looks like your getting lots checked off your "to do list" today!
The cc is a good combo....like how your card turned out (the skirt looks like it was harder to make!!)
