Let's Get Funky, My Purple Baby!

Wow! We had an awesome number of players in our Anything Goes challenge last week! It was so much fun to hop around and visit everyone's blogs! We really appreciate all the participation!

It is Monday, and that means time for a new challenge! This week, we have a fun sketch for you to play with! Come on over and join us at Craft Your Passion, and show us your doubles! You could win an image of your choice from CocoDingo and Lauretta's Digital Stamps. While you're there, check out the creative inspiration of the rest of the design team. They're all talented ladies and they have some beautiful creations to show you!

For my card, I have chose to use this fun image by Lauretta's Digital Stamps. There is something that I love about this image, though I can't quite put my finger on what it is about it, that intrigues me. I wanted to be outside the box, this time, and go with some funky colors for her hair and lips. She's colored with Promarkers. Isn't she just the most beautiful purple haired lady?! I used some funky purple paper by Paperabilities that I found in a stack on clearance last year at Walmart and hadn't ever used it. It seemed perfect for this funky purple lady! The metallic purple cardstock is also from Walmart. The loops are made of sheer lavender ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is by Stampin Up, from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set, and is punched using oval and scalloped oval punches by Stampin Up! I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add sparkle and glitter to her hair and to the background paper.

I am entering this funky card in the following challenges:
