Monday Mania Color Challenge

Hello! First, I want to say I am so sorry about the title of my post this weekend! I wasn't trying to play a joke or be funny - it never occurred to me that by making my title "Saying Goodbye with a Sketch" anyone would think I was saying good bye to blogging or card-making! My mind didn't even go there!
My card today is a birthday card for my daughter's friend, and I used the color challenge over at Club Anya and Friends Monday Mania for inspiration! The Monday Mania challenge this week is brought to us by Michey Moo and it is to use the colors Olive, Kraft, Khaki and Sand. I think I got them all in there! This one scared me a little because I usually like brighter, more saturated colors, but I am really happy with the end result! Great color combo Michey Moo!

The Details:
Stamps: Oliver and Amelia Buddies, sentiment from Oliver and Amelia Happy Day - both The Greeting Farm
Paper: DCWV (dots), Retired SU (olive print). Old Olive, River Rock, Kraft (all SU), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Antique Linen Distress Ink
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E47,E49,100
Clothes: YG03 w/W1 over it, YG95,YG97,E30,E31,E33,E40,E43,E44
Dog: E40,E43
Misc: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 and Ovals, Linen Thread and Button (SU), Ribbon (Offray), Pinking Scissors, Sewing Machine

Be sure you check back on Wednesday, because I get to start showing you Club Anya and Friends Previews that day! YAY!!

Have a wonderful day!
