Sassy Cheryl's Ladybug Flower


I have a color challenge card to share with you today!
Our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps is to use the colors purple and green on your card.

I did a lot of experimenting on this card from coloring to Versamark to distressing.  This cute image is from Sassy Cheryl's and it's called Ladybug Flower and is colored with Copic markers BV0000, BV000, BV01, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, R27, R24, R22, G82, G40 a white gel pen, Copic multiliners Black 0.5, 0.3 & Sepia multiliners 0.5 & 0.3.  

I used Spellbinders dies, Ovals, Labels and a tag die.  The green panel is stamped with an old Stampin' Up! background stamp in Memento Tuxedo black and distressed.  The black panel is stamped with Versamark using a Stampin' Up! Friends definition background stamp, also retired I'm sure.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set and I added some purple organdy ribbon to the sentiment tag.  Cardstock colors are Kraft, Via Vellum Black, Via Vellum Leaf Green, Discount Cardstock's Cobalt (?) and Neenah Solar White.

I hope you'll join us for our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps and play along!
