It's a Garden Party!

Happy Friday everyone! I'm running a little later than usual for this week's Blogger's Challenge because I went to see Toy Story 3 this evening! What a fun movie! We all enjoyed it. However, it is still Friday, so I'm not technically late...lol! Our challenge this week is a wonderful sketch from Lisa Somerville. She always has something terrific for us and this week is no exception. I started off with Birthday Princess from My Favorite Things. She is paper pieced with some Garden Variety paper from Cosmo Cricket and colored up with Copic Markers (C0, E000, E00, E01, E29, E33, E35, R24, R27, R29, Y21, Y32, YG13, and YG17). Her birthday crown needed a little bit of bling so I added a few pieces of Creative Candy from Amuse. The sketch calls for an oval in the center of the card, so I used my Nesties for the oval and the scalloped oval (Stampin' Up's Riding Hood Red). The rest of the patterned papers are also from Cosmo Cricket. I didn't have any red brads so I used Copic Marker R29 on a few purple colored ones that I didn't really need, and what do you know...red brads!!! The reason for this fun and summery color combination is that this is also my contribution to the Color Challenge over on the My Favorite Things blog. I'm very excited to see what the other Ladies have come up with for this sketch. You can find the links to their blogs in my right side bar. Enjoy the rest of your evening, and thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
