Some Chillin' Time


Who couldn't use some Chillin' Time? This card was created for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #15. The challenge was a color challenge using White, Bashful Blue, Almost Amethyst & Elegant Eggplant. Well, since I never buy any Stampin' Up! papers or cardstock, I had to "wing it" with the colors, but they're close, I think. I wanted to color this image for a while now and when I saw the colors in the color challenge, I thought, "Dang! This isn't going to work with those girlie/fairy type colors!" But I was determined and had my mojo on, so I rolled with it! LOL The image from Mo's Digital Collection is called "It's Hot" and boy, I wish it was! Anybody ready for summer? Count me in!! Okay, here's the deets:
