For your chance to win: Comment on the following Design Team members' blogs TODAY before midnight EDT. There will be ONE random winner chosen from the comments on today's Blog Hop blogs. That winner will win Little Birds With Big Mouths. We will announce the winner's name on tomorrow's blog post.



This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 331 - Not Quite Breezy Cobbler.
My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAY # 199. I love that sketch.
I stamped my focal image in momento tuxedo black on MFP's 140# white cs that works fabulous with my copic markers. I cut, embossed then sponged with baja breeze using Nesties Scalloped Ovals. I punched the sentiment after stamping in Not Quite Navy with SU Scalloped Circle punch and then sponged some baja breeze around followed with my white jel pen and baja breeze marker for doodling around the edges.
My stamp set is a brand new just released today set called "LITTLE BIRDS WITH BIG MOUTHS" from MARKS FINEST PAPERS.
Hope you like it.

Both of these cards are so pretty, Neva! I like how you pulled the colors from the DP into the stamped panel on the first one. But I think my favorite is the blue/red one.
