CMC Birthday Bash!

Can you believe I stopped by my own blog! This is just plum pitiful! I haven't been here since before Christmas! I am totally ashamed. I don't really have an excuse 'cept maybe lazy. I did manage to get some cards made for Christmas. I made a new and totally different design for everyone on my list. Let me tell 'ya, that took some doin'!

My great friend Suzanne Dean at Color Me Creative Classroom is having a Big Birthday Bash this week! Her classroom is turning 2 this year! Suzanne is such a good friend that I had to join in! I have been with Suzanne since the very beginning. I couldn't be happier for her. Be sure to follow this link to her fabulous Copic coloring classes. I guarantee you won't find a better teacher anywhere! Not only does she have online classes but she travels around teaching classes in person as well. Color Me Creative also has a blog that is totally free for everyone with the greatest bunch of peeps you will find on the web! The Color Me Creative Blog has a bi-monthly challenge with the the neatest prizes. I recommend that you stop by for a visit. You won't be disappointed!

I created this card for the challenge at Color Me Creative Classroom Blog Challenge. This challenge is "Anything Goes". This darling image is from Saturated Canary by Krista Smith. This particular image is Gypsy Dancer! Isn't she the cutest! I used Bazzill Black Cardstock for my base. The brightly colored papers are from the Celebrations paper pack from Cricut. Pennants are made with the pennants punch from Stampin' Up. The stamp on the front of the card is Stampin' Up and the sentiment on the inside is from my stash. Ribbon is Stampin' Up and I embossed the sentiments with Stampin' Up's cherry cobbler embossing powder. I distressed all my papers with my Zutter Distress It All which I love!

My Gypsy Gal is stamped on Copic Xpress paper and I colored her with the following Copics,
skin: E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E49, E37, E35, E33, E31, E30
Leg Warmers: B04, B02, B00, B0000
Skirt: R29, R27, R24, R22, R20,
Y06, Y04, Y02, Y00
YG06, YG03, YG01, YG0000
