Just Us Girls #146 - Color Challenge

Hi everyone!  Are you in the mood for a great color challenge from Just Us GirlsAndrea chose a fabulous one for us.  These are some of my very favorite colors!  I wear them a lot and love to craft with them too!

I found these colors in the My Mind's Eye Hattie Papers pack.  I paired  it with this little cutie Pure Innocence girl called Make Mine a Double.  I paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with copics.  I added some Star Dust Stickles to the hearts and ice cream.  I love what some crafters have been doing with their embellishments, and I copied one I saw on Amy Sheffer's card.  I love the way it turned out.  I also pulled out my Pixie Singer craft sewing machine and did some stitching on my card.  I haven't used it in a while because the thread was always coming out of the needle while I was sewing and it was very frustrating!  But it didn't do it this time.  I think the problem was that I had taped the edges of the paper and the needle was getting stuck.  This time, I just ran some tape in the middle of the papers to keep them from moving around.  That seemed to work!  I need some practice, though.  I'm not a very straight and neat seamstress!

I also followed this week's MFT sketch.  I've been loving using them!  I'm also entering this into Crazy 4 Challenges.  Their challenge this week is to add stictching to your card.

You can see more inspiration on these blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend!
