Blogger's Challenge...Blue, Rust, Mustard

Happy Friday Stampers! Have you been shopping today? Did you get any great Black Friday deals? I hope so! We are home today and that is just fine with me. Maybe we'll brave the elements and the crowds after lunch and see what we can find.

As I promised in yesterday's post, I'm back today with my creation for this week's Blogger's Challenge. We are to use the colors Blue, Rust, and Mustard. Now I realize that my card doesn't scream, "Winter is coming!", but I thought that this image would be perfect for these colors so I went in that direction. When Elzybells Rubber Stamps was going out of business this past summer, I treated myself to as many goodies as I could. This delightful image and sentiment were part of my package. The image is colored up with Copic Markers (B21, B24, E08, E15, Y21, Y26, YG63, YG67, and YR18). I used some retired Stampin' Up patterned papers and the large panel was sewed onto the rust card stock with my Janome Sew Mini. I added a blue button with some twine to finish off the sentiment flag. Now, if you are wondering where I used the mustard color, well, that would be the little flowers in the image. It's there...I promise...lol! I started off using Mercy Kerin's sketch, but the vertical panel didn't look quite right with my image, so I'll have to try again. I hope that you'll have a chance to see what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with. You can find their blogs here. Thanks so much for visiting with me today...Toodles! :D
