Love this little guy from Digital Delights! DD is the sponsor, and he is my choice for my TTDT card for this oh, so interesting challenge being offered at Tuesday Throwdown:
Using colors you wouldn't ordinarily use.
Although I love Autumn, and the colors that go with it, surprisingly, this card turned out to be one of my faves! From the red and blue clouds, to the playful shadows, the Prismacolor Markers really made him look so creamy and sweet...and I totally love his white face.
I used some "vintage" CTMH paper from my stash. This was from a western themed kit. The front of the card is trimmed on the right side, so the border pieces show from the inside...make sense? Look at this pic...
I used a punch to make the edge, and inside the card, it says, "more friends like you." Cute play on words from the Wizard of Oz song...sentiment is from a set I made for H and M Stamps, now no longer around. The cloud stencil is CTMH, I use it A LOT. I made the oval with my Coluzzle. The ribbon is from my trip to the Offray Ribbon outlet many years ago, and the gems are from Michaels.
All in all, this card was simple. The play on colors was a super fun challenge. The card simply came together quicker than most for me.
I am entering this card in some challenges...why not?
