Sweet Dreams and a New Challenge for Me

Recently, I applied for a position on Artful Sentiments' Copic Challenge Design Team. You can't imagine how excited I was when I found out I made it onto the team!

Last year, my husband surprised me with one of the sets of 72 copic markers! My collection has grown a bit since then. It took me a little while and a lot of searching online, both blogs and video tutorials, to get to a place where I felt good about what I was creating. Of course, now I am totally addicted to Copics so this challenge blog is a perfect way to inspire me to keep trying new copic color combinations.

This week's Copic Challenge 6 colors are YG11, R20 & B21 and any other copic from the blue (B) family. Aren't they yummy together?

I love the way Kimm has set up her Copic Challenges! She has made it extra easy to participate. Each week, she suggests 3 copic colors and a color family to use. You can use 1, 2 or all 3 of the specific colors. If you don't have a specific color that week, just use something close - how cool is that? Just make a card, post it to your blog or online gallery and then link, using Mr. Linky, to her post for the week. To use a little Bostonian lingo, it's "wicked easy"!

While my 6-month term doesn't start until next week, I couldn't resist this week's challenge - YG11, R20, B21 and any other color from the blue (B) family! Here's what I did!

Sweet Dreams
Sweet Dreams set (My Favorite Things)
Paper: Dark Tie Circles from Scrapbook Walls line (Chatter Box); Pink Gingham (Making Memories)
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink & Whisper White (Stampin Up); textured lime green (DCWV)
