Prom Shopping and CAS Colors and Sketches Challenge #218

It is Good Friday in the United States and it is the last day of my vacation. Today I went shopping for a prom dress with Charlotte. We fortunately found one in the first place we went to. It is a small place called Red Door Boutique that is about twenty minutes from my house.

I loved this shop because you made an appointment with a stylist and she was the one who went into the room with Charlotte to dress her. It made it much easier on me. I just sat on a couch waiting for her to come out and model it. The next best thing would have been a cocktail for the parents while waiting!!

Charlotte picked the green on the right for her dress. I do have photos of HER but will wait to post when she ACTUALLY goes to prom and is all dolled up. My daughter is more of a tom-boy in the way she dresses so getting her to wear a dress is a miracle in itself.

On another note, I have been attempting to get my craft room in order this week. It is slow going and part of me cleaning up is using up stamped/colored images I have on my desk. I don't want to start using new supplies until I use the old up that I worked so hard on-KWIM?

Today I am sharing a card I created for the CAS Colors and Sketches Challenge #218. I mixed images from My Favorite Things "Happy Hedgehog" set and a few other random sets to finish off my card.

Here is the sketch that I used to create the card:

I actually flipped the sketch a bit to make it how I wanted it to be. I am hoping that this it will be okay to still enter but I am going to try!! I also chose to emboss an area with my score board straight across the top in lieu of adding a piece of patterned paper.

I used Copic Markers in B0000 and B000 for the sky in the background. I just flicked across the panel many times, not worrying if it was perfect. I wanted a bit of white to show through like clouds. For the grass, I used a flicking motion with markers YG01, YG03 and YG05.

Instead of the square on the sketch I chose to include a speech balloon with the sentiment and the addition of a die cut heart.

I thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Have a fabulous day!!
