December 31, 2008's COLD outside!!

Hi everyone! Happy New Years Eve!! It is CHILLY here on Long Island, so for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC209, I decided to pull out some spring colors to make me happy :)

For this card, I used Happy Heart Day from SU! Looking at my gallery, I realized I haven't done an SUO card in a week!! So of course, I had to rectify that!!! I stamped the elephant without the sentiment over his head (I masked that part with a post it note). I then watercolored him with Basic Grey Ink and a touch of Pretty In Pink and my Aquapainter. I also watercolored the heart flowers and the grass. I then stamped the hearts again, watercolored them, put some Dazzling Diamonds on them, cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. I did the same for the butterfly.
The background was created with my Scallop Circle Punch, and I used it as a stencil for the sky. I sponged the background with Cool Carribbean. I cannot remember where I saw someone use the Scallop Circle Punch for this technique, and I LOVE this whoever you are...AWESOME idea! Thanks!!
All the panels are Georgia Peach DSP, and I paper pierced around the Old Olive and So Saffron panels. I colored the hearts on the sentiment and added some Dazzling Diamonds to them as well. I finished off the card with some Regal Rose Grosgrain Ribbon and Rich Regals Brads in So Saffron!!
Thanks SO much for stopping by!! I wish everyone and Happy, Healthy & SAFE New Year!!!
