A sweet pure innocence

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. My day started somewhat early this morning. Had to be at church at 8:00 for interviewing 3 candidates for our church bookkeeper position. We have narrowed it down to 2 and will make a decision in a couple of days.

Had a couple of errands to run after that and then returned home early afternoon. I was surprised at how cold it was today. But that didn't stop my hubby from being out working in his yard. It's his way to unwind. Just like I use my card making to unwind.

The card I am showing today is one that I made for the color challenge #368 on Splitcoaststampers. This week Vicki is our hostess and she chose the color trio of elegant eggplant, concord crush and melon mambo. Seems like most of the team may have struggled a bit with her choice but in the end we all liked our cards.

For my card I used a digital pure innocence image. I colored her in the 3 challenge colors. I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I cut my image with labels 10 Spellbinders and then Labels 18 in melon mambo.

My background designer paper is concord crush and I also used concord crush ribbon and layered it over my white satin.

To complete my card I made a double loop satin bow and added a die cut daisy (sizzix daisy #2) in concord crush to the center.

That's it for me today. So until next time..........
