A Belli Challenge, A Sketch Challenge and A Digi Challenge Plus One

Oh my gosh...I have soooo much respect for those of you who can color!!  This is the first digi image I've actully really colored.   Most of what I've done has been just  a little here or there.    If you saw how many copies I made and threw away, you'd giggle.  On one, poor Bella had what I can only describe as a very bad afro beehive...even my husband broke out into a giggle.  grrr..that little white mark at the bottom of her sweater is a little piece of lint that I didn't see until I took the photo. ;-(

She's got rhinestone buttons on her sweater and shoes. (Bronte's collar, too!) Her skirt and hairbow shimmer with Stickles and her red shoes are PATENT LEATHER!!  (CE)  I would have loved a pair of red patent leather shoes when I was a little girl.  I had to wear orthopedic shoes...icky brown.  Do you think I can give all my little girl images shiny shoes?  I sponged the background lightly in MS pink.

This card is for 4 challenges...first, BelliChallenge#84  to use ribbons on your creation.  I looooove ribbon so this one was easy.

The sketch challenge is the first ever challenge from Daisy Doodles.  Head on over, show her some love and play along.  This was easy and fun.  My card size is 4.25 x 4.5. 

The third challenge is a digi challenge using the theme Love at Delightful Sketches and Challenges blog.  Head on over to play...there's a cash prize here and some really cute inspiration cards to get your mojo running.

The fourth and final challenge was to use something new from ABC Challenge blog.  My something new is  my tiny sentiment but it's from a huge Fiskars set called "Romance" first Fiskars stamps but they are really nice.  Stamp crisp and clean.

And if that's not enough to ignite your creativity, head on over to SNR Card Universe and join Mo's Digital Pencil and you can have your very own Bella Hearts Bronte along with a bunch of other super cute images for FREE!!  While you're there, check out the big birthday challenge at Digital-Ink Co.

Charlene, your card is adorable and so beautifully done. I have to tell you I'm right with you on the coloring thing. Sometimes I toss SO MANY images before I get one that is acceptable. But yours looks absolutely perfect!

Cheryl said...
