Anita Be Stampin Challenge...

I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood. -Bill WatersonTuesday brings us another Anita Be Stampin Challenge...this week is a Gorgeous color combination! I love these colors together! Unfortunately, I am having a Hate/Hate relationship with my Mojo lately and couldn't get the look I wanted. I threw away 3 images before I finally got this one done to my satisfaction. The layout is Super Simple and almost Identical to a card I made earlier this week. I just didn't have the right creative juices flowing!!

I colored a few images with Copics but didn't like the look I was getting in the purples, so I switched to my Koh-i-noor pencils and Gamsol. I did color the face and boots with my Copics though. I tried few layouts and more embellishments, but in the end the image stole the show...Aspen is So cute that I really didn't Need too much on this card, so I just added Ribbon, Stickles and a Rose. I had to pull out my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug Folder just to make Anita jealous!! ;)
