CHARACTER CAFE SKETCH CHALLENGE!!

Time for another FEATURE FRIDAY at CHARACTER CAFE BLOG.  Be sure to head on over the pick up the sketch we're working with this week and also to add your link to the challenge using our Linky Tool.  You have until 10pm next Thurs., Sept. 23.  I know my post is a bit late, but I got to work on my card while stamping with friends last night, and that was "just what the dr. ordered" - prior to that, I had a MAJOR lack of mojo!  Anywho, just want to remind you that although CHARACTER CAFE images are not required for our challenges, we sure do LOVE to see them and you can find some FREEBIES at CHARACTER CAFE SHOP.
The CHARACTER CAFE image I used here is called "Shelby."  I have to say that I'm not much of a car person, but I really enjoyed coloring this image and am VERY PLEASED with how it turned out.  I colored it with Copics and Atyou Spicas and cut out with Nellie's die and daubed with SU old olive.  I also used old olive to daub over embossed dots on red paper.  Scallop border cut with Fiskars punch.  Buttons from Denami Designs.  Sentiment from Unity, stamped in Memento rich brown ink and cut with scissors.  Embossing on red layer done with Sizzix die.

The challenges I entered with this card are:
MAMI DOODLES - red and for a boy
THE STAMP MAN - distressing
FUSSY & FANCY - Christmas colors
PILE IT ON - birthday for OWH
STAMP, SCRAP & DOODLE - birthday for OWH
MARK'S FINEST PAPERS - birthday for OWH
CARDS & THINGS - old olive, daffodil delight, rose red, kraft
CREATIVE COTTAGE - birthday boy
AI FACTORY CHALLENGE - for the boys

Awesome! I'm not real fond of car images either but combined with the sentiment you chose and the colors, I really like it. Thanks for sharing. :)
