So Much to Do...

Hey y'all!!  Well, it's 20 hours before the Anita challenge closes for the week....and I'm done with my entry!  I know, it's shocking.  If I keep going like this, I might finish my entries even a few DAYS before the challenge ends.  LOL

Ok, so this week was a color challenge.  The colors were: Teal Blue, Smoky Plum, Purple, Sage Green.


Pretty, huh?  I had fun with this challenge.  I think my colors are a little bit more vivid than planned, but hopefully that's ok.  Here's my entry:


I just love this Anita stamp, Tallulah.  I think she was one of the very first I bought, and I've been very happy with her.  She's just so sassy! I had to give her a sassy little sentiment.  I've been hearing a lot about Kentucky Derby parties going on this weekend...and that always brings to mind big hats, snooty attitudes and mint juleps.  (Kind of like the polo scene in Pretty Woman, you know?)  Anyway, I think Tallulah would fit right into that scene....then knock it on its ear.  LOL!  

 I was kind of trying to bring out the image of a sunny day (since most of these big hat parties take place outside).  I imagine Tallulah and the purple background as the center of the sun (because the world DOES revolve around her, you know).  I used a Sizzix sun ray embossing folder, then used jewels on the rays of the sun to give them a little fire.

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Thanks for stopping by!
