The Best Thing

Good morning from the Design Team at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog as we roll out this week's challenge.  We don't have a sponsor this week, so each of the team members will be sharing a personal favorite on the challenge blog. Be sure to check that posting out and enter YOUR favorite image too!

I decided to share a card I made earlier this week for one of my customers.  He is the best about ordering cards for his wife and three children all year for every occasion. 

This week was their anniversary and I asked for a list of her 'favorite things'.  I still wasn't sure where I was going after I got the list! lol

But from it I pulled these top things; her favorite animal is a wolf and her favorite color is blue.  I'm sure most would say that's just not a good combo, right?  Well I just saw that as a challenge! 

I had several 'wolf' stamps but none of them seemed to fit the need so I goggled 'wolf coloring pages'.  Images will sometimes work, but coloring pages usually will get more of the single line drawings. That gave me plenty of choices of free images.  

Here's what I came up with. 

I sized the image to 4" tall and printed her on 110# Neenah cardstock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring and they are referenced below.  

The matting paper really pulled this card together!  It's from a lovely Stampin Up paper pack called Beauty of the Earth

I used Carnation Crafts Pretty Shabby Square Labels die set for the edges of the image and mat.  The card base is 6" square with a embossed rose navy matting for the first layer,  Then I secured the blue patterned mat and the image in the center of the card.  

I stamped the sentiment with Versa Fine Claire Blue Belle and used handwritten sentiments from Kelly Creates stamps.  

It's different no doubt, but I love how it turned out! He seemed pleased when he picked it up, so hopefully his  beautiful wife was too!

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
