Favorite Layout and a Color Combo

Happy Friday!

Hope you've had a great week! It was another busy one here, but I'm hoping that the weekend will allow for some relaxing!

I have two cards today, one for Just Magnolia and the other for Stamp Something. Both challenges are new today and one is a color combo and the other a choice of sketches!

Our challenge for you this week is another for favorites. This week we want you to use your favorite layout or sketch on your project. It can be one you've created or one that you've seen somewhere and just really loved using.

My card uses an easy layout that can work with many different images. I chose this sweet Swiss Pixie image for my card. She's been colored with copics and highlighted with a white gel pen and Spica glitter pen.

I found an old scrap kit and used the patterned papers and some sticky die cuts for the embellishments. I've added some brads and some hard plastic flowers too. I think it's a sweet and simple card!

Our challenge at Just Magnolia this week is a color combo challenge to use pink and gray with the option to add in some black. I found some old patterned paper with a soft pink pattern on cream paper. Then added some pink and gray cardstock.

My Tilda has been colored with Copics and then I paper pieced her dress with the same patterned paper. The piecing fits the challenge at La La Land Crafts. I cut her out and then sat her on this stain ribbon. The layout is from Everybody Art Challenge. I've embellished with pink roses and some gray swirls.

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope you have a great weekend! I'll be back later with the winner of my blog candy. There's still some time to enter! Happy Stamping! :)
