S is for Smile - {Pin}spirational #45

Hello, and happy Tuesday.  It's been a busy week and I actually did get some cards made, but haven't had the chance to get them posted on my blog yet.  You will probably be seeing them this week at some point.  I actually had an order for 2 Valentine cards that a girl from my office wanted to give to her little grand daughters (ages 2 and 4).  Guess I better get that Etsy shop open soon.

On to today's card for {Pin}spirational Challenge.  I really loved this photo that we had for our inspiration this week.  The colors are just so striking!
I wanted to use a little bit of the leopard print also from her dress or whatever that is, but it just didn't fit into my card.  I decided to just go with the colors from the photo.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Fresh Brewed - Coffee Talk
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Too Terrific Tags
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Taken With Teal; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Sweet Shop
  • Accessories - Bakers Twine; Flower Brads (from my stash); Stampin Up Tag Punch and scallop border punch
  • Copic markers - BG05, BG23, BG45; E50, E51, E53; R24, R29; Y11, Y15, Y21; YR61, YR65, and YR68
  • Sketch - MOJO212 (Mojo Monday)
Hope that you'll take some time to try this challenge too.
