Bugaboo Challenge Entry

I was surfing through some of my favorite sites over the weekend and came upon Bugaboo Stamps and their Catch the Bug Challenge blog.  In case you aren't aware of this Bugaboo offers a wonderful freebie on Friday; and this week their darling Turtle with an Umbrella is a perfect match for their recent challenge of using kiwi, banana and coral.  While I am not exactly spot on with the colors, this is my submission to their challenge.  I have to admit that it was hard for me.  While I am not against this color palette, I rarely use it and had to scrounge around for some papers that would work.  All papers were taken from my scrap pile since I am on a kick to use everything up before buying more. And the Bugaboo image was colored with my Bic Mark-Its.  The sentiment is handwritten.  I did try some embellishments with this card, but didn't care for any that I had, so I went for CAS!  Although I did add a bit of ribbon/fiber to meet the challenge.....lol

Thanks for stopping by - I hope to have another entry for you tomorrow!!

Huggz,

What a darling image! You've colored him (or is it a her) so sweetly, and that spot of yellow for a sun is adorable! Thanks so much for entering your card in the Catch the Bug color challenge with Bugaboo Stamps!

Very cute and I like the fact that it proves with your coloring that you do not "have" to get the copics markers to get a good coloring -they are quite expensive. Also I love your idea of using every thing u have before buying more. Sometimes I try and just use scraps as a challenge to myself and some of the scraps are really small because I hate to throw anything away.
