Hello! I love the look on this little girl's face, she is so sassy and spunky looking. Plus she was a lot of fun to color. One thing I have been trying to work on when I color is using different shades of the same color in the image and to not have those shades clash with each other and to not have them blend together either. So on the particular card, I used E000, E00 and E21 on the skin, E50, E51 and E53 on the hat and then I think E34, E37 and E39 on the hair (forgot to write down the hair color!). I like the way that I was able to get the hat and the skin to not look like they were blending together. The rest of the colors are RV00, RV02 and RV06 on her shirt, YG03, YG 06 and G07 on the grass and leaves, and B32, B34 and B39 on her jeans. The papers on this project are Making Memories, the flowers are Prima, ribbon and brad are from my stash.

Sweet Pea Stamps is celebrating their first anniversary today. And as part of that celebration, they have having a customer blog hop and the challenge is to make either an anniversary card or a birthday card. I have lots of friends with birthdays coming up in April and May, so this birthday card will be my entry for the blog hop. This is another image from the Ching Chou Kuik's Fantasy Art collection. I colored the image with Copic markers and then asses some glitter with a Spica pen. I went over the background with Buttercup Twinkling H20 paints. I added some acrylic drops and then a button that had some gold ribbon laced through it. Papers are DCWV, button is Bo Bunny and the ribbon is from HL. Thanks for dropping by tonight!

Chanel is ready to strut her stuff!
This week we're giving you a snapshot of a scene
that takes us back to one of our favorite little villages in France.
Don't you love the sweet yellow bicycle with the Menu board on it?
We'd love you to take a look at our 'oh so french'
picture and let it guide you for this weeks...
Shirleys2Girls Twisted Thursday !
Whether it is the color palette, the sunflowers,
or anything else in the photo...
JUST GO FOR IT!
So the TWIST for this week is to use the photo below...
All we're giving you is some inspiration!I decided to used those gorgeous sunflowers as my inspiration. I used the closest thing I had to sunflowers as a backdrop for my own menu board that I colored gray with Copic markers. I then added the handwritten "You're Invited" with a white gel pen. My French Chef was also colored with Copics and then cut out and I added it to the scalloped rectangles with some foam dots. I thought that these would make cute dinner party invitations.
Papers are DCWV, flowers are K & Co. and the ribbon is from Michael's. Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you enjoy the French Inspiration! Don't forget to go the the Challenge Blog and Link your own French inspired creation. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's projects.

Isn't this a great image? Actually they all are, but I really like this one, especially the sentiments that come with it. My image was colored with Copic markers, cut out and then backed with a piece of black card stock. I used a Fiskars border punch along the side piece and then added some small rhinestones in the openings. To finish my card, I added some hot pink brads. I picked this sentiment because I love that song. I had it played at our wedding as we walked out of the church after the ceremony.
Now for your next stop on your tour, head over to Rue Dauphine (Jana's blog) for another fabulous project. If you get lost along the way, head back over the the S2G Challenge Blog for your road map.
