Keep it Cool....

Good morning everyone!  It's time for another Happileigh Scrappin' challenge, and this time it was MY turn to choose the challenge.  Woo hoo!  I decided that since August is usually so very hot....we should keep it coooool.  That's right, we want to see you using only cool colors (hair and skin not included).  In case you're not sure what the cool colors are (versus warm colors) here's a color wheel that has been divided into the two categories.


My card got to pull double duty this week.  Not only is it my DT card for this challenge....but it was also the card I gave my grandmother for her birthday today.  (Happy birthday grandma!!)


I just love this Bird with Flowers image.  I colored it with Copics and then added Stickles to the wings and flower centers.  The inside of the card says "It's your birthday!"  My grandma loved it, so that was very cool.  =D

Now that you've seen my creation, jump on over to the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge Blog to see what the other Happi Sisters have designed.  Remember, you do not have to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image to participate....but we would LOVE to see you use one!  Plus, if you do use a Happileigh Scrappin' image you get entered into a special extra drawing for Happileigh Scrappin' projects.  That's TWO chances to win!  

If you don't have any Happileigh Scrappin' images yet, you can visit the store here. As always, it's buy three images get one free.  Plus, for this month you get the following image free with any purchase!


Hope to see you play along!  Thanks for stopping by.
