InStyle Stamps Wednesday Color Challenge!

Hello Everyone,

I had wanted to post my card earlier but due to problems with our cable provider, I wasn't able to. We have the cable bundle which means our telephone, Internet and cable are provided by our cable company. I have heard of other people having problems every once in a while, but until last night....we have never had a problem. telephone, cable or Internet services for over 9 hours! I'm so relieved that the our cable is working again....I missed my fav. programs and my computer. Smiley from millan.netThe telephone is something I have to put up with rings all the time! *LOL* Smiley from

This weeks InStyle Stamps Challenge is a color challenge, you have to make a card using the colors purple and green!

The prominent color of my card is purple with splashes of green to compliment. I paper pieced the dress of my image (Gidget) with design paper from Papertrey Ink. After I adhered the paper pieced dress to Gidget, I noticed that only one green polka dot was within the pattern. To spice things up a bit, I added more green polka dots to Gidget's dress with my Copic Marker.

I made my card base with Nesties Label One die and the mat is with Nesties square and scalloped dies. The card measurements are 4 X 4. I used Copic Markers to color in Gidget's skin tones, hair, shoes and Hula Hoop. The sentiment is stamped directly underneath my image.
My card is embellished with flowers, half pearls and ribbon.

To play along with the challenge, simply make a card using a stamp from InStyle Stamps and post to ISS blog. Have fun!!!

Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!
