Oswalda Goes Shopping

It's Wednesday which means it's time for the SquiggleFly colour challenge over on SNR card universe. The wonderful Stef has given us 3 colours to play with... Eggplant/purple, bright yellow, green/ SU certainly celery
The image I have chosen is by the utterly fabulous Crissy Armstrong. Most of you know Crissy from her work with High Hopes Rubber Stamps, but lucky for us she has branched out even further and here is one of her Squigglefly Digi Designs. This is 'Oswalda goes Shopping'

The yellow and egglplant card stock is from Bazzill, the green is SU certainly celery.
To make this card I printed off Oswalda and coloured her with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Odourless Mineral Spirits.
The yellow piece of Criss Cross Bazzill was put through the cuttlebug to give the lovely embossed finish. The Happy Birthday ribbon is one of the cheap ribbons from the $1 shop. Last but not least I finished off with Paper flowers from Kaisercraft with co-ordinating bazzill brads.

Until Next Time
Inking of you All
