Super Challenge Saturday is here!!

Good Morning! It's a chilly, but sunshiny Saturday and it's challenge day!

Hop on over to Joni's blog A Sticky Situation for all the details. It's going to be tons of fun and there is a prize!!

The challenge is cartoon character color inspired cards. I chose Cinderella: blue, pink, a touch of black and the glitz. I think this card came out great! It's also my first Anya card. I hope you likey...

I used Whisper White for the base, bashful blue, pink pirouette and glitter cardstock. The Greeting Farm's Dress Me set Anya. Then with some pink polka dot ribbon to the side and I discovered I really love stamping sentiments directly on ribbon. This technique works better on non-textured ribbons, but I love it anyway. And of course, no Melissa card is complete unless it has ribbon AND something Cuttlebugged on it. I used a combination of Copics and Kohi-noor pencils to color her.

This is a close-up (I love my hubby's camera) of the sentiment. It's a TAC stamp that I received as a gift. It has 3 stamps - "Dream" "Wish" and "Inspire" -- but no name of the set. It's perfect though. Then I topped it with primas and bling. Not bad for first thing this morning with no coffee.

I hope you enjoy my card and that you participate in the challenge. I look forward to seeing your art.
