Good Morning!

Happi Monday, y'all!!  You know what that means....time for another Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge.  Woot!  This week was Barb's turn to host. Unfortunately Barb had to leave the DT last week, but we decided to keep her challenge in honor of her time with us. The challenge is: Emerald Birthday.  If you were not aware, the Emerald is May's birthstone.  So, what we'd like to see is either a card with emerald being the main color or a birthday card.  If you make a birthday card with the main color being emerald...you get entered into the challenge twice!  How cool is that?

Here's the card I made for the challenge:


I used Leigh's image Sunbonnet Bonnie, which can be found at the store here.  Green is one of my very favorite colors, so I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  Orange is NOT one of my favorite colors.  In fact, I very rarely use it.  However, I had these fun little orange flowers I really wanted to use....and I'm pretty happy with the result.  I decided I like how the colors went together.  =D  Now most of you know me pretty well so you know the image was colored with Copics, and the bow was covered with Stickles.  I just have SUCH a hard time finishing without my Stickles. LOL

Ok, you've seen my project.  Now head on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog to check out the gorgeous cards by the other Happi Sisters.  Remember, you can use any image to enter the challenge, but if you use a Happileigh Scrappin' image your project gets entered twice.  If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images yet, you can find some freebies here,  or you can visit the store here.  Leigh still has a couple of specials going on (free Mother's Day sentiment with purchase and buy three get one free) so you'll want to hurry.

Thanks for stopping by, as always!  I love to hear from you.  =D  I'll see you all soon!!
