Another The Greeting Farm Cutie!!!

Edited to add: I took a new picture of this card in the daylight because the one I posted previously at night just did not do it justice. Of course, it still looks better IRL, but you have to blame the photographer (little ole me) for that!

Just a quick post this afternoon. I can't believe the day... and the weekend... are nearly gone. Can I have a do-over?

This past Thursday night, I tried the challenges during The Greeting Farm's Virtual Stamping Luau for their May release. One of the challenges was to make a monochromatic card, and here's what I came up with:

I absolutely love how this turned out! I colored Reeta (one of the new TGF Wild Sprouts) with Copic Markers T0, T1, T4 and T6. I used my Signo white gel pen for the polka dots in her hair bow. The card base is Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight black onyx (there was a sample in the Floral Frenzy Kit, and I must say that I LOVE her base weight cardstocks). The DP is Black and White Basics by Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is from Taylored Expressions. I guess you could say that I pulled out all the heavy artillery on this one! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today. I love when you visit and leave comments so that I can get to know you! Have a good rest of the weekend and remember... if we lived our lives by weekends, we'd only have 52 in a year, so enjoy your week!

Great card Lisa!! :) LOVE this sweet image, and you can never go wrong with THIS color combo. Now Yoyo yellow and grey?.... Don't think so! LOL. That was one color challenge on SCS--YUCK! There were a few cute ones out of the bunch though.

I agree....weekends are great, but we need to enjoy every day to the fullest. Have a super week!! :)
