Delightful Challenges

** Please scroll down to see the MTME Pretty Patterns post **

Hi, me again.  Thanks for coming back for the Delightful Challenges post.  This week we have a new release and a fun challenge.  We've got a color combo to play with...

Pink, Black & Silver

My card features Rockaround Sue. She's one of the nostalgic 1950's images released this week.



I tried my hand at red hair.  Not sure I like it but she does kind of remind me of a teenaged Pebbles Flintstone.  I used the sketch from Crafts4Eternity and I am also playing along with Digital Tuesday (punch it out).

Thanks for stopping by, now head on over to play along with us.

Supplies:
Image: Rockaround Sue
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Black, Pink Pirouette
Paper: Sugared (Basic Grey)
Copics: BG01, BG10, BG15, C5, C7, C8, E00, E02, E04, R02, R29, RV000, RV10, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR16
Tools: Cuttlebug, Labels Two Nesties, Scallop border punch (Fiskars), Scallop circle punch (SU!), silver gel
pen
Embellishments: Sugared brad (BG), silver metallic ribbon (Offray)
