Combined Challenge

Today's card is a combined challenge for today's Color Challenge on SCS, and Amy Westerman's Super Sketch Sunday #15 Challenge. I wish I had more time in the day, but it seems easier (lately, anyway) to combine some challenges so I can fit them all in! :) I haven't used my Bellas in a while, so I thought I'd ink this one up. I'm totally loving the 70's pants! Part of Amy's sketch challenge was to use paper piecing, so the Bella's top and pants are paper pieced using Vintage Violet and the striped pattern from the Palette O' Prints. I kind of like this color combo. I haven't used Vintage Violet hardly at all, so it was nice to have an excuse to use it. The ribbon is from May Arts and I just LOVE it! The sentiment is from my Little Lady set, by Papertrey Ink. It wasn't meant to be in the oval, but I stamped it on the white cardstock and it didn't stamp clearly, so I had to cover it up! I actually ended up liking it better! It kind of fills all that open space!

Thank you, so much, those of you who have signed my Guest Book so far. I can't believe all the places you guys are from! I've even reconnected with a friend from my theater past. . .it's unreal how small the world really is! As always, I really appreciate your visits! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Pregabella, Little Lady; Paper- Vintage Violet, Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Palette O'Prints, White cardstock from Papertrey Ink; Ink- Palette in Noir, Old Olive, Bordering Blue, Blush Blossom, More Mustard; Accessories- paper piercer, May Arts ribbon, Old Olive marker, small oval punch.
