Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #130-"Anything Goes"

Good morning dear crafty friends!

How was everyone's weekend?

Today at Scrapbook Stamp Society we begin a brand new challenge...everyone's favourite "Anything Goes"!  As always our amazing sponsor is the lovely and talented Sherri Baldy!

It was my Mom's birthday yesterday and this sassy lady called to me...I had a vision in mind of the card but as always things took on a life of there own once I got started...does that ever happen to any of you??  You have this vivid image in mind of EXACTLY the way your card will turn out and then when it's done...HMMM!!  Well I have to confess that when I was finishing her up I dropped an ink pad...luckily it hit the edge so some heavy shading ensued...then when that didn't look right out came one of my good old friends...frantage!!  I remember Vicky Boutin always saying to us "There's never a mistake when you're crafting"!!  Well luckily my hours of colouring didn't come to a disastrous end...thank you frantage!!!!

Here is what I ended up

I just loved colouring this sweet funky can find her HERE...
coloured with my copics and dusted with Aged Taupe Frantage...

I added Glossy Accent to her eyes and buttons...
