Just playing around...

Hi everyone.  I have a card to share with you that took 12 hours to make!  LOL!!  Really, I started this card at 10:00 this morning and got most of it together.  Then had to leave for the day, so back at 10:00 tonight I colored the image and finished my card.

I love how this card turned out.  This is a Z Fold card and I found several tutorials on You Tube and SCS for it.  A lot of fun!  I'm playing along with a few challenges, too.  The one that started the whole idea is over at All That Scraps Wednesday challenge for fun folds.  Then I thought I might as well add a color challenge and I found two.  Just Us Girls and CMC Challenge group are basically the same colors.  JUGS is a softer palette, while CMC is a brighter palette - so I guess I sort of went with in between hues.  Well, anyway, I hope you like what I did....

I used another one of the CC Designs stamps that I selected as a prize.  This is Hello Birgitta.  I am also using a button and hat pin that I recently purchased from a store I just found called Stamping Scrapping {dot com}.  Great store!  Be watching for more on TMS - Cindy has agreed to sponsor.  Yippeeee!!

Anyway, back to the card.  Here's the inside view.  The sentiment is from a SNSS set, One of a Kind.

And a view from the top.....
