Go, Go Granny!

This week, the color challenge over at Stamp TV, is to use pink, green, and orange. Now that is what I call fun! Here is what I came up with.
I just love the granny driving a bug that is in one of the older sets from Gina K. Designs, called "You Know You're Old When". I stared at her for a long time and decided to give her some pink hair instead of blue. (I actually had a lady come to donate at work the other day that had hair this pink) The other Copic colors I used are these.... B02, C1, C3, C7, E00, RV10, RV11, Y13, Y17, Y38, and YG17. My background is a textured pink card stock, that has been run through the Cuttlebug with the new Tim Holtz Fade called Bingo. I rubbed it with a Colorbox white ink pad to bring out the embossing. I punched out bingo chips from the new Grass Green, Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K.. My accents are orange gems and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, from the June club assortment.

Today I am simply exhausted. Yesterday was my DD and future SIL's open house for their new home. A good time was had by all, but after cooking all day Friday, and smiling and helping all day yesterday, not to mention a drive that is 2 hours both ways, I need me a sit down day! I may be back later with more cards.
