My Besties Challenge

Good Morning All!

This is going to be a very quick post as I have a busy day of stuffing jars with green tomatoes & onions (LOL ... canning Piccalilli) but I wanted to share my card for the My Besties UK Challenge before the deadline.

The challenge is a color challenge using  these colors (what fun) ...


Well, I just grabbed one of my cute Besties images ... this one's called MILLIE MAE ... and started coloring with these colors in mind.  Here's what I came up with:


What do you think?  Isn't she adorable?
I had some scraps of design paper laying on my desk so that's what I used to create my background.  My base panel is the reverse side of a Halloween sheet I printed using Crafty Secrets Halloween paper image files ... the burlap is paper from JoAnn Fabrics.  The verse is from Verve and the flowers are various companies.  Orange Stickles adorns the flower center as well as the flower centers on my Besties image.

A few other challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge - Fall Fun
Allsorts Challenge - Autumn Colors
CMC Copic Challenge #78 - Fall Colors
Di's Digi Designs - Show Off Your Coloring Skills
Challenges & Candies - Colors of Autumn
Crafts for Eternity Recipe Challenge - Color Challenge (Cinnamon)

Polkadoodles - Autumn
QKR Stampede - Fall Colors
Stampin with the Dragon - Yellow
Simply Create Too - Fall/Autumn

Hope you like my creation and now I'd better get moving!  Those jars aren't going to fill themselves!  LOL!  Happy Day to you all!
