Swinging From Challenge to Challenge Today

Today, I have created a mini-challenge mellange by combining 3 great challenges!

For colors, I was inspired by the fabulous color combination from Artful Sentiments' Copic Color Challenge #30! Check out these beautiful colors!

This week we have Cadmium Yellow, Yellowish Green and Lavender!! So pretty!

As always you can use 1, 2 or all 3 of colors in your creation (or whatever you have close) for the Copic Color Challenge at Artful Sentiments by Kimm.

For the layout, I went with a great sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge #74. This layout called for some embellishments, so I reached for the Spicy Supply of the Month over at Gingersnap Creations - brads!

I even threw in a Technique Junkie technique from awhile ago - Out of the Box (OctNov 2004 newsletter).

To make it more fun, I decided to use only scraps from my bottomless pit of odds and sods so I don't have too many details for you today.

Swinging Sweetie
Stamp: swinging girl (Sugar Nellie)
Paper: flowered scrap, green gingham scrap (unknown)
Cardstock: purple 12x12 (unknown); Whisper White (Stampin Up)

So head on over to see what the other designers have put together for the Copic Color Challenge at Artful Sentiments!
