Purple and Green Combo with a little Yellow Thrown in

The challenge this week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog was set by ever so delightful Judy. The challenge is a color combo of Purple and Green. I just happen to love those two colors together, but decided I had to use a girly image, since I don't know too many boys impressed with those two colors on themselves. As usual, I'm down to the wire getting this done, but it isn't because I've been goofing off. I've had other commitments(birthday party invitations for one of my great nephew's 1st birthday party and getting a box of OWH cards in the mail). Now with having this done, I'm headed to the sewing machine to make a couple of cowboy vests. How did I ever work full time and get anything done?

At any rate, the image I chose is a fairly recent Sassy Cheryl Digi called Day Dreamer Girl. I mostly colored in Copics. However, I decided she needed a print top so threw in a little paper piecing. The DP backgrounds were some free tiles that Fred She Said offered for a freebie well over a year ago, but the colors were too perfect not to make a paper out of them. WalMart must have known about Judy planning this, because when I went in there last week, they had spools of purple and green ribbon. Quite timely don't you think? My sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse Stamps and was in one of the sets I won from the Lungs for Life raffle. Thanks again Cheryl. I love these two sets.

Now I'm off to get it entered in the challenge before time runs out.
