Whimsy Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone!! I actually feel like I got a few things accomplished this weekend. I made this card for the Whimsy challenge. I just love this image from Sarah Kay. She is so fun to color and with so many options.

I spent last night with my husband. We watched the Fast and Furious. It was a pretty good movie. When I was younger I was into racing. I grew up mostly with brothers and they liked going to the track and racing on a quarter mile track. I was always under the car with them and also enjoyed the muscle cars as they say. I raced a few races myself and actually had a chance to go professionally. I almost did but things didn't work as I would have. I still like to look and wouldn't mind getting behind of a muscle car. I guess it never gets out of your blood.

Back to the card. This was a scetch challenge. With this one I had colored this little girl with my copics and then built the sketch and colors around her. When I colored the dress and bonnet I thought of this velvet ribbon from SU! I have had it for awhile now. The paper is from Basic Grey, Urban Prarie (I believe). The sticker gems I got from Michael's awhile back. I need to start using some things that I seem to hoard or put away and then forget that I have.

Hope everyone has a great day!!
Thanks for stopping by,

This is SO cute...I love those Sarah Kay images! I liked the Fast and Furious as well but boy there was some stuff I was pretty offended by. I feel like such a prude!
