Sweet Sketch Color Throwdown

Good Morning Everyone,

Well, Levi survived his first day with the soft cast. He did stay home with me yesterday but he's back to school today and I'm sure he's soaking up the attention!

I have a card to share with you that I made with the newest Sweet Pixie from CC Designs. Her name is Pippi and she's such a pumpkin! This card is using the sweet sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the colors from Color Throwdown and I am loving these results.

So as I said, the image is from CC Designs - I buy the digi's because of their cost effectiveness but more because I can download instantly! Got to love that. I colored her with my Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS, then aged just a bit with a touch of brown around her edges. I love that effect. The Color Throwdown challenge was to use Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red and Close to Cocoa. I'm out of Close to Cocoa card stock so I added Chocolate Chip and then used a Close to Cocoa (equivalent) grosgrain ribbon. I love how the dark brown behind it really makes that ribbon stand out. The decorative paper I used is from a paper pack from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is also from CC Designs.

Thanks for stopping by today. I look forward to another visit another day.

Oh! One more thing I've been meaning to mention. I know that I told you for each pre-order purchase you make on the winter line at Sunshine & Giggles a $2 donation will be made to help Paige Welch's parents with their medical expense. But Janice announced that you can also purchase the entire winter line for $40. That's a savings of 50%!! Holy Moly!! Also for every purchase of the entire line $20 will be donated to the Welch Family. What a deal. 10 great stamps for half the price and you're still helping this family who is in real need.
