Mojo Monday #124 & Color Q #18

Good Morning! I just want you to know that I really, really struggled with this card!  Mainly I stuggled with the colour challenge - getting that yellow in was a killer!  When I saw it on the CQ blog it all looked gorgeous together but trying to make it work with my card was tough!  I loved the sketch from Mojo Monday.  I've used a stamp my friend bought me for Christmas, I'm afraid I don't know the brand.  I stamped it several times. Twice in white, one for the rectangle and then on the second I cut the girls out and raised them up on foam.  Then stamped onto the various papers to make the dresses, then paper pieced it all together.  I love the way it looks.  But I have to say it moved me out of my comfort zone working with a stamp that was essentially a real person instead of a cutesie drawing - I think that was the first time I've ever used that type of stamp! Thanks for taking me out of my comfort zone Lorraine I love the finished effect of this stamp!

Here is the sketch and colour challenge details for you to see.

Thanks for stopping by. :)
