Celebrating You

Hi friends,
I've been so busy with school stuff since report cards are due. It's so seriously cutting into my lovely crafternoons which i don't likey at all :(  Maybe I should just give them all A's :) What do you think??? Ah well, I was able to get this card in for a few challenges this week.
Here's my card:
This is a beautiful image from the Friendship Jar Spring Fillers stamp set from Papertrey Ink. It's colored with Copics YR12, YR15, YR18, YG93, YG95, YG97, and shadowed with C1.
I usually cringe away from oranges (no, not the fruit- the color :) but it's one of the colors for this week's CR84FN color challenge:
So this particular color challenge was really a challenge! But I guess that's why it's called a color challenge and not a color simple, right? ;)
I also distressed the edges a bit with my Tonic (T!m Holtz) distress tool for this week's Papertrey Ink Challenge #5: Distressing Edges
and used this week's sketch at JUGS.

Thanks so much for peeking today! I've gotta go back to school stuff now.
Gotta Go!

  3. Go ahead and give them all A's, you'd be the most popular teacher in the school! Love this one, OMG the coloring is spectacular! Love the pearl pen details, too. Orange is my fave, lol, so funny that you usually avoid it. You should embrace orange, cause you rocked this one!
