Miss Bossy!

Challenge #91

at Mo’s Digital Pencil

Black and White With One Contrasting Color.

Bossy (2)

This is my second week as GD with Mo’s digital pencil, and it’s been marvellous!  This week the challenge theme is to use black and white with one other color.  This does not include the hair or skin.  When I saw this cutie at Mo’s store, I immediate thought of my daughter.  This was the perfect image for her birthday card.  You’ll understand when you see the tag that is on the inside of the card.  The image is called “Bossy”.  I decided to make a Cross Over card so that I could add a tag.

My contrasting color is purple, my daughters favourite color.  I colored the image with Copics.  The image was cut and layered using the Lacy Square Dies by Spellbinder.  The two embossing folders I used were Happy Birthday by Cuttlebug, and Floral by Crafts Too.  The white card stock was already embossed.  Flower are by Prima.  The sentiment was computer generated.


This hilarious sentiment was a freebie I got ages ago from Create With TLC, and I knew I wanted to use this for my daughters card.  We have been bugging her about turning 30, and I thought this sentiment said it all!  Needless to say, she loved the card, and is realizing that turning 30 is nothing to worry about.  The one last thing I did with this card, is on the inside I added a birthday poem, but put it in large print…..another way to tease her.

Well, there you have it, I hope you will join us this week for another great challenge, and don’t forget to pop over and leave some love at the other DT blogs, they will have some stunning cards to show you.
