La Vie Est Belle

Hi again!  Didn't think you'd see me again so soon, did you?  I'm popping back in today to share some exciting news and a little card I made.  You all know how much I love my Make it Crafty images and love coloring them, right?  I try never to miss a challenge in the Make it Crafty FB group or the Make it Colourful Challenge each month.  Well, imagine my delight when the wonderful Zoe invited me to be a Guest Designer along with her fantastic FB team this month!  I am still pinching myself to be sure it's real!  I am truly honored and thrilled to have this opportunity!  Thank you to Zoe and the whole MiC DT for making me feel so welcome!

So here goes my first post as GD.  I've made a card using this month's $1 Digi, Frenchie Valerie.  This is a special offer for MiC FB Fans only, so if you love all things MiC like I do, you should head on over to the FB Fan group and join up.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Buckaroo Blue and the patterned papers are from the Prima En Francaise 6x6 pad I've been hoarding in my stash.  I printed Frenchie Valerie on MiC Blending Card and colored her with my Copics.  I added Glossy Accents to the cherry on the cone.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some red taffeta ribbon and a bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97
Red: R30, R35, R37, R46, R59
Cone: E41, E42, E43, E44
Ice Cream: RV91, RV93, RV95

Thanks for stopping by again!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and see you soon!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly (sketch #87 or sketchie free for all)
The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge #64 (something spooled; I used spooled ribbon)
613 Avenue Create #61 (use your stash; I used hoarded paper)

Here is Sketch #87:
