be happy...

It is the yuckiest, dreariest day here! I had to take 4 of my kids to the dentist this morning so my day didn't exactly have a tranquil start to it but I still found some time to squeeze in a little stampin' time.

I combined todays SCS sketch challenge with the Color Throwdown challenge AND the Bella's Show & Tell challenge to come up with this one. The color throwdown colors were: kraft, olive green, dark brown and dark yellow, which sounds rather fallish to me SO I figured those colors would work for the Bella challenge which was to use an autumn palette.

What do ya think? Now I have to ask you to overlook the slightly smudged stickles. Apparently I got a little excited and put my card together just a little to quickly without waiting for my stickles to dry completely. Should have used glitter instead but my hubby's laundry is currently in my office, and I don't know why but he gets just the teensiest bit cranky when I get glitter on his uniforms. Evidently it doesn't look very professional. I guess the bad guys just don't take you seriously when you are sparkly. But Ketto, she seriously needed some sparkle because she is just that kinda girl!
What I used:
Stamping Bella Ketto
chocolate chip, crushed curry, kraft, GP white card stock
My Minds Eye Simply Beautiful designer paper
Memento black ink
stampin' write markers
stickles
wide olive grosgrain ribbon
