Well, it's thankfully FRIDAY and I have barely survived the first week of the kids going back to school.  Just such a huge difference between going to bed at 2am and 10pm and then having to get up at 6am instead of 10am!  By next week, I should be back on my "school" schedule and able to handle it:).  This week brings another FABULOUS challenge at CHARACTER CAFE BLOG and it's a recipe challenge to
1.use brown and pink
2. Use tearing or crumpling
3. Use at least 2 buttons

I am very happy with how my project turned out.  I LOVE pink and brown together - one of my favorite color combos.

In order to enter the challenge at CHARACTER CAFE BLOG, simply make your card following the rules of this week's challenge and enter on the TCC BLOG by 10pm next Thursday, Sept. 2 using our Linky Tool.  If posting to an online gallery such as SCS, please use the tag TCCFF30.  Also, while you are not required to use a TCC image, we'd certainly LOVE to see one, so head on over to CHARACTER CAFE STORE to check out all the amazing images and you may even find some FREEBIES:)

I chose to use THE CHARACTER CAFE IMAGE "Witch Olga" for my card.  I colored her with Copics, Atyou spicas and Sakura glaze and souffle pens and cut out using nesties.  Papers are SU soft suede, chocolate chip, which I tore down the side, Bo Bunny DP, flowers are made from 2 different color brown core-dinations papers and SU textured melon mambo and pink pirouette.  Buttons are Denami Designs and ribbon is from Jo Ann.  Flowers cut out using flower dies (can't remember manufacturer).  Sentiment is computer generated, cut out with Nellies Multi-frame die and Kaleidacolor ink rubbed around edges.  Hope you like it.
I am also entering my card in the following challenges:
CHARISMA CARDZ - HOT, HOT, HOT (look at that cauldron!)
BUNNY ZOE'S CRAFTS - distress, tear, etc.

The pink and brown color combination on cards always looks beautiful. The blue dots on the ribbon stand out and gives the card a unique look.
