Penny's Challenge (PC16)

Yippee ... it's time for another Penny's Challenge and today we're doing a COLOR CHALLENGE.
Before going any further, I want to bring it to your attention that beginning in December, Penny will be doing her challenges on a bi-weekly shedule.

After looking through my designer papers ... I decided the Basic Grey June Bug papers worked the best for this color combination. I've also used SU Brillant Blue, More Mustard and Close to Cocoa cardstocks. My main image is by Sugarloaf and I purchased it for $.50 a LONG time ago at Pat Catan's.

I recently had the pleasure of being offered various sets of the new Prismacolor PREMIER Markers and that is what I've chosen to color with today along with a little "paper piecing". My sentiment is by Great Impressions and it is stamped with Versafine Black ink.

I wanted to show you the inside of my card today too. Unfortunately, I don't always share that aspect of my creations with you and that's something I need to do more often. Mind you, I don't typically get too elaborate with the inside but I will try to share them with you here and there!

For the inside of today's card, I've used the remainder of the designer paper I cut for the front main panel then simply stamped my sentiment next to it. Didn't do much ... but I think it really has an impact on the overall creation.

Please stop by the blogs of my co-team members (listed in my sidebar) for additional inspiration on this color challenge and we can't wait to see what you create. Be sure to link your creation back to our Challenge Blog on Mr. Linky so I can pay you a visit and see what you've come up with. Trust me ... I can ALWAYS use new inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
