365 Cards Day 190

Here we go! Another Monday Challenge at 365 Cards, and another fabbie sponsor! This week we are being sponsored by Wink Wink Ink. Pam's challenge for today is to use the COLOR SCHEME below. I like color schemes. I have so much paper that I am sure to find something that works! The pink in this group was a, but I made it work!

I got to work with the cute, In A Jam digi stamp set from Wink Wink Ink. I colored the little mousie with Copics. I have a new printer and the Copics make the ink smear! So I have to go back to my other (and more expensive ink) printer for printing my digis. At any rate, I colored the little dude while trying to stick with the color scheme. Pam said I could use neutrals, so I used white, gray, and tan.

I used three colors of American Crafts cardstock, and Basic Grey Oliver printed paper. I fit in a bit of pink for the mouse ears and the cupcake frosting. I even added some green sprinkles.

I made the lines on the cupcake paper by coloring with B37 Antwerp Blue, and then "coloring off" some of the blue with the colorless blender. Ta da! I gave my cupcake a "cherry on top" by gluing a flower on top. I had a few flowers in the same burgundy as the paper and ink. Yay me!

The inside of the card says: Laughter is the Best Medicine. So true. I did not put any greeting on the outside as I can use this for different purposes: get well, had a bad day, I'm sorry, etc.
