Just hangin' out!

I have a hard time yet creating my own layouts :-( so I still use challenge sketches to help me out. This card was made for the High Hopes Sketch Challenge #17 and I combined it with the very first Copics challenge!

I usually go by the sketch first then choose a stamp (is that backward???), but this time I selected my stamp and colored it with Copics. The colors for the challenge were:
B28 - Royal Blue
V06 - Lavender
YR07 - Cadmium Orange

I used:
B24 - Sky
BV31 - Pale Lavender
YR07 - Cadmium Orange

I also used: YR04: Chrome Orange; B32: Pale Blue; RV13 Tender Pink; YG06: Yellowish Green; G09: Veronese Green; W3: Warm Gray #3; W5 Warm Gray #5

I found cardstock that matched fairly closely to my image. I layered the main background, ending up with blue on top; orange for the second layer, and topped it off with blue and a shade of lavender with the image on top of that. I used an orange ribbon and a bow on the image, a blue gingham ribbon behind the image, and a lavender gingham ribbon at the bottom left of the card. I used denim 1/2 pearls from Kaiser in the upper left corner of the card. The phrase is computer generated.

This was a fun card to make, and a fun sketch to follow.

Thanks a bunch for lookin' and have a blessed week!
