Wow, I saw a lot of wonderful cards last week for our challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog and today we've got another one for you. Coffee and Cream plus a little Whiff of Joy! What could be better? I readily admit that this one was quite a challenge for me as well. It's not often that I stick to a specific color scheme. Usually I just use the papers that I pick out for the card and match my Copics. This time I had to do the opposite. I am actually happy with the way it came out though and now vow to stretch myself more often in the future.
The sketch I used was from Sketch Saturday so I will entering my card there but I also wanted to tell you a little bit about the rest of the supplies that I used. The paper is from Sweetness by Pink Paislee and has been one of my most used 6x6 paper pads. It's funny because I traditionally use papers that are more cute than these and I have found that I really love the frilly stuff.
The stamp is from Whiff of Joy. She is called Willow in the Summer Breeze. I love all of the fruit on her pretty clothes. Very fun to color. I've listed the Copics that I used below. The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy and it is included in the Spring Swirls doodle and sentiment set. I think it is the perfect combination of print and script and I love what it says.
I hope that you will join us in our challenge this week. Of course there is a fabulous prize to be won. $50 spending spree to the Simon Says Stamp Online Superstore. What could be better than that?
Copics: E000, 00, 01, 50, 51, 53, 57, 59; R20, 22, 24; G85

Baby Update: My little bundle is doing well. Feeling him move more and more each day. Struggling with tiredness but hopefully that will ease up a but. I've still got a long way to go. It sure has been different this time, being an "older mom". In some ways, the best and others, Wow, I'd like to be young again. But I have faith that I will survive, :) and it helps that I know there is a wonderful bundle of joy at the end of the rainbow. Attitude is everything, isn't it?
