Whoa! Did I Make That?

Ok, so this card really isn't that much of a stretch for me. However, I looked at it as it was coming together and thought "I should distress this." My poor distressing tool rarely comes out. I think it might have gone into shock, doing two whole layers!

I got this image in a swap and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Someone on SCS told me it's called Stipple Hydrangea from Stampin Up. It's retired so I might have to poke around eBay and see if I can get it. It's really not a normal "me" image, I tend to go for more "cutesy" but I think it's really beautiful.

I colored this with every type of marker I have. LOL! I don't have many colors in each type so I just combine them. Did I mention that this is the color challenge from this week on SCS? We were to use Lavender Lace, Barely Banana, grey, white, and black. I added green because I couldn't color the stem and leaves grey. It might have actually killed me. I used Stickles on the center of the flowers and the CB folder is Stylized Flowers.

Happy Thursday friends! We are going to get Parker's first professional pictures done today. Wish me luck!
