For YOU!

I'm still reserving judgement on my own card. The bright lemon yellow ... I just can't decide.

I was inspired by THREE challenges:
1 - HERE - colors, Grassy green, Apple Green, Sunflower Yellow, Lemon, and White
I wasn't sure about the bright lemony yellow paper. I tried to hide it behind the other stuff... but I just am not liking it. I also used the paler yellow (which I embossed in the cuttlebug). I went over the embossed bits with a copic marker to show them off a little. I put the paler green as a mat on my image.
2 - HERE - brunette hair - copics!
copics used: E00, E31, E57, E71, Y11, Y21, RV21, G21, G94
3 - HERE - MOJO Sketch
I followed pretty closely, though I did give it a turn sideways. I added a bow instead of the little round label...
Stamp is Tilda with a cowberry muffin (from Magnolia)
Papers are from PaperTrey
I think I might go home after work today and dismantle this one and replace the bright yellow paper with something else... I did really like the grassy look that came out with the embossing and inking with the copics - kind of grassy and fun looking.
enjoy your Thursday... I like Thursdays better when there is good TV to look forward to. How much longer until our shows come back?
