ABS Color Challenge

So, I woke up this morning with a card design in my head.  Have you ever done that?  I have dreampt of card designs and woke up without remembering them, but this time I woke up with this design in my head!!! So I decided to use it for a challenge.  And there is a color challenge going on over at Anita Be Stampin.  It calls for these colors.

I hope that I used the right colors. Sometimes the color on my computer is a little funky.  In those colors I saw my fave copic pinks, R-81,83,85,89 and for the greens I say YG-91,93,95.  I hopped on over to her store and picked up a digi image named Aspen.  Isn't she a doll?  I just love her outfit, so cheerful. I really wish I could pull an outfit like this off!! LOL.
I just really love an image that doesn't require me to color all day!!  This image was just an easy peasy image to color.  I used some white scribbles paint on her fur.  It has a nice shiny effect. I think the hardest part of this card was getting that hemp fiber through the button holes!  I actually took my skinny little round file from making memories and filed the holes larger!
This sentiment is from the AmyR Stamps Holiday Greetings set that I picked up this year from All that Scraps.  I have used this set so much, I think on every one of my Christmas Cards, so versatile!!!
OK, an inside shot!!!  Super easy inside, just gives it a finished appearance.
I did some inking with Creme Brulee ink from CTMH.  
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, as always I enjoy your visits!!! Publish Post
It also fits the challenge over at mad for markers,  a Christmas Card using non-traditional colors.

Great job, Bren! I love those papers. I have yet to do the hemp through the button hole thing. I just don't have enough patience. LOL. I also like cute images like that, which are easy to color. Good luck on the challenge.
