A Hippie Challenge from Digital Ink!

Coffee of the Day - Chocolate Caramel

Good morning! A quick post filled with lots of info! First - be sure to head over to the Digital Ink Co. Challenge blog today for 2 reasons: Great blog candy chances & a new challenge is being posted!!! :)

Here is my card for the challenge -
You get to use the colors navy, light blue, & burgundy on your creation. The winner will get a really fun new digi from Beary Dust! I grabbed papers from my fave ever paper line yep, Basic Grey! :) these are actually from 3 different collections - diamonds from the new Eskimo Kisses, navy mat from Boxer, and blue deco from Marrakech. I love the retro way they all go together! so perfect for this little rebel gal, Hippie Chick from Stitchy Stamps! She just shines with lots of bling courtesy of shimmerz, blingz, and my spica glitter pen. I saw someone one day with navy hair which spurred the idea behind hers, and a dear friend had a lock of burgundy sparkle hair once, so dearest Maddie - this is for you! (some of you may reember my horrible mishap with trying to dye my hair with kool-aid..... this card brought back funny memories while I was making it. sooooo happy I can laugh now - although the rest of the family was in hysterics at teh time! grins!!!) the mat is edged in more of those fabby new disterss stickles. The gorgeous trim, 'cause after all this hippy chick is still a girly girl ya know ;), is from Prima. the top Prima flower is painted with pink shimmerz to add that last bit of sparkle and shine!

Last but not least, stop back by on Friday for the start of the Digital Ink Co blog hop! I'll also have blog candy on Saturday to clelbrate World Card Making Day and my BLOGAVERSARY!!!!!!! WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO!!!! Check out the other DT chicas to see what fun creations they came up with for the challenge this week! and then play along! :)

Love ya! Jennifer
