Love You Loads

So What do you do when you can't sleep and your waiting for your painkillers to kick in?  Have some fun creating a card for some challenges that's what; well it's what i've been doing for the last couple of hours.

I've had this KennyK image 'Star' for a while now, and not had a chance to colour her up, so I thought this card would be the perfect opportunity for her to shine.  Whilst surfing around blogland this week I'd come across a few challenges that sounded good, so I thought i'd have a go and try creating one card for multiple challenges.  Usually i only have one reason, or challenge that I make a card for, so I decided to really stretch myself and combine three challenges in one card.

This card is for Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge #26 - Love You, The Pink Elephant TPE#91 Colour Challenge of Pink, Orange and Aqua, and Some Odd Girl Challenge - Lets get Embossed.

I used some papers from DCWV Floral Stack, Orange Vellum, and a Aqua Card Blank.  To this I added some striped deco tape, pink gems, and my 'Star' image (coloured with Promarkers, Orange Stardust Pen, White Gel Pen)  To finish it all off I stamped the 'Love you Loads' sentiment in Black Memento Ink, and then went over it with Orange Stardust Pen.

I'm really pleased with how this turned out, I've managed to use up some old stash, play with an image i'd neglected, and complete 3 Challenges.  The layout for the card evolved as I was making it, I think it works quite well.

Thanks for visiting with me

Love this Suzi. I love the bright funky colors. I have had this image colored for months.... and I mean months and I still haven't made her into a card yet. I hope the painkillers have kicked in now. Thanks for joining us this week at KKKG and I hope to see you again next week, which will be my week to create for KKKG.
Hugs:)

This is gorgeous! Star is one of my favourites too ... and yes ... I am also guilty of not colouring her yet! That little highlight over her eye really caught my eye! Thanks for playing with us this week at KKKG.
