Hi everyone! It's time for a brand new challenge over at Saturated Canary and it is a fun colour challenge this week :) Now this card is a little special...if you are my dad then turn away now!! hehehe. Dad's birthday is coming up (halloween to be exact!) and he loves Saturated Canary images so I have made him up a birthday card using one of the brand new rubber stamps Summer. We always do something Halloween themed so this year I thought it would be nice to just to a pretty coloured image. She was so much fun to colour up...beautiful hair!


See that super cute sentiment? That is one of the brand new chipboard pieces over at Make it Crafty! Super cute...you get the chipboard frame (which I have inked up here with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo), and you get coordinating rubber stamps to match the shape. Super easy to use...go and check them out :) Here are the copic colours that I used on Summer:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: W1,W3, W5, W7
Dress: R22, R29, R46, R59
Green clothing/grass: G21, G84, G94, G99
Sky: BG0000, BG000, BG01
Clouds: C2, C3, C5

A quick post from me tonight...I am so tired and need to clonk into bed I think. We are getting close to the house...one week to go! :) Hope to see you all playing along with this week's challenge and thanks for stopping by!
