Neutral Browns with Miko

Hi everyone! I have a card to share and finally got a chance to play along the WOW challenge over at the Farm. This week is to make a card using browns tones, which I love for the hair, but have never tried to color the entire image in browns. Well, here it is and it turned out pretty good... whatcha think?
Used a sketch from Papertake Weekly, and this inspiration photo from ATS Wednesday challenge
where I picked the creamy colors and sunflowers to showcase

The days are just flying by this summer, thanks for visiting me on my limited posts and for the very SWEET comments! The kids are excited for the upcoming weekends, we will be taking two short trips to Yosemite and then to Lake Tahoe! Oh and in between the weekends, we'll be celebrating my son's birthday! Then it'll be back to school at the end of the month... and back to regular schedules for everyone! August will be one busy month! but all worth it!!

Thanks for stopping by! ;)

C.A.T.S. July

Hey everyone! My missing mojo is making a small comeback and so finally got a chance to complete one of my projects for this month... for my C.A.T.S. July partner Linda! The theme for this month was to use red, white, and blue - since I'm way past July 4th holiday, I tried using different blues on my project. This darling stamp is called Lil' Bug Emma from CC Designs' Sugarplum line, and it was part of my SS swap goodies from Linda! I just love this cutie and had to use it and make something for her.
Here is the card...
Colored with Copics, added white flock on the wings (can't really see it), and stickles all over her red leotard! Sentiment is from Studio G clear stamp set (from Kris P.), stamped onto the smallest scalloped rectangle Nestie set. I love the postage stamps that I see everywhere, this is pretty close to it!
Next is my matching tag...

and this is the cute card and tag set I got from Linda...
She used the darling Kiyomi from the brand new line Sister Stamps! that my mojo is slowly creeping back, i've got a few more projects to finish up this week!
