I made this easel card for two challenges, but I messed up for both challenges. Here is how I did it...

The challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is Heart Filled Color Combo. The colors were pink, red and chocolate. I think I got the colors right, but I completely forgot about the "Heart-Filled" part of the challenge... LOL!! I was supposed to put some hearts somewhere in the card... This happens to me a lot! I can only blame myself for not writing the rules down.

I used sketch #85 from Friday Sketchers for this card and I already missed the deadline as we all know that it's Saturday. So now you know what I mean by "messed up"... =0

I had a great time coloring Francesca and putting this card together though. I love her straight hair and short, puffy skirt! =) I also used Jane's cupcake in this card. I used a white gel pen to draw some white dots to give it a more finished look. By the way, Jane's new release is available at Squigglefly right now, so don't forget to check them out!

Those are all the mistakes that I am planning on making today. Hope you enjoyed it. =) Have a beautiful weekend!
