You're So Cool

Hi there!  Hope you've had a great weekend!  It's been quite a soggy one here, which is fine for crafting indoors, but not so great for the golfers and attendees at the Regions Traditions Golf Tournament being held just down the road from me at Shoal Creek.  I had hoped to go watch the final round today, but no way I am standing out in the rain to watch golf!  I will watch the replay on TV later.

Since I didn't go, I had time to finish up a card I was making for a couple of challenges.  It is for Jackson's Digital Expression Challenge #7 (anything goes with option to use inspiration colors) and Basic Grey Challenge #69 (clean and simple).

Here is the JDE color inspiration:

Here is my card:

And a close-up of the image:

I started with a card base of SU Not Quite Navy and layered with patterned papers in the inspiration colors from the Basic Grey Marjolaine 6x6 pad.  My image is Girlz Night Out from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson.  I printed her on Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added some Stickles to her shoes, jewelry and cocktail.  I added Glossy Accents over the Stickles on the glass.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.   I kept the lines clean and the layout fairly simple.  Some ribbon and a Webster's Pages Sparkler were my only embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your day and hope to see you soon!


  1. Hi, Carla! GF this is so nice! I love everything about your project. You have such a great sense for composition and color, and, of course, your copic skills are always impressive. So glad you had a chance to play with us this week, I just would not be right if we didn't see one of your gorgeous creations in our challenge.

    Thanks and Hugz,
    Chana, DT Coordinator
