Card For A Couple of Challenges

Hi there!  Happy Hump Day!  Have you had a good week so far?  Mine's been busy, but good.  I'm popping in to share the card I made for a couple of challenges I like to do.  It's for Sweet Sketch Wednesday #142, Simon Says Stamp (use three different patterned papers), Digital Tuesday #148 (make it sparkle) and Copic Challenge #37 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom site (lots of laughs and bright, fun colors).

Here is the SSW sketch:


And here is the CMC Inspiration photo:


Here is my card for the challenges:


I started with a card base of SU Melon Mambo and layered with three different brightly colored papers from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6x6 pad following the sketch.  My fun image is Stella Love - Person To Annoy from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  I printed Stella and Gus on Cryogen White and colored them with Copics.  I added some sparkle to her dress, slippers and the little heart with Stickles.   I also added some Glossy Accents to their glasses. The funny sentiment is from the same image set.  I thought this would make a cute anniversary card!  A few turquoise rhinestones finished off my card. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm off for an afternoon of appointments, so I'll check back in with you all later.

Have a great day!
