Mo's Challenge # 10

Singin' Your Praises!

I really like blues and yellows's just such a  cheerful combination! 
Lydia's challenge to us this week was to make a Thank You card using one of Mo's images. 
I decided that I'd use "Tomorrow" and not color her with the usual red and white dress and red hair. Now she's just any little girl singing out her thanks!
I love doing the "out-of-the-box" technique with Nesties. It looks difficult, but is actually pretty simple to achieve. 
Here's a tutorial by Diana at Paper Cookies that's easy to follow. Give it a try and you'll be hooked!
I used SU! Yo-Yo Yellow and Ballet and Bliss Blue CS. The white is from PaperTrey Ink, and the designer paper is from Basic Grey.  I colored the image using Copics and popped it and the sentiment up with mounting tape.

Come over  and join us in Mo's challenge. We'd love to see your work.

Elaine: I love blue and yellow together too. Your Thank you card is wonderful as usual. Love the way the Out of the box makes her look like she is standing in the spotlight!
