Be yourself ...


I've had this image from Just Some Lines called Big Hat Girls 2 printed for over a week now.  This was one of the Freebie's from the current CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenge #18.

I picked up the sentiment from Create with TLC for free last week.  When I saw it I knew I found the perfect sentiment to go with this image. 

I wasn't sure how I was going to color this adorable girl until I saw the current color challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.  The colors in the challenge were perfect for her, so I pulled out my Copic Markers and got to work, and fussy cut her out leaving a white border.  Next was to cut out the sentiment and the border with my dies, and layer all the pieces on my card. 

I will be submitting this card for the following challenges ...

Now for some inspirational photos ...



I really love how this card turned out, and I hope you do to!

Until next time ... Enjoy!
