June colour challenge at Some Odd Girl

Good afternoon!  It's the 1st of June and that means it's time for a new challenge at Some Odd Girl!  I can't believe May when by so fast and summer is here already!  I'm not ready for it yet... I've still got so much to do! 

This month we have a fun colour challenge for you at SOG!  Check out our cute inspiration picture from Sevenstar:

And here's my card using Gifty Gwen:



I actually cased a gorgeous card I received recently from a blog friend of mine, but I can't tell you who just yet because she hasn't posted it on her blog yet!  The papers are a mixture from my stash and I cut the frame for the sentiment using my Slice machine.  Gwen, the sentiment and the gift are all from the same clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl.  This is actually the first SOG stamp I ever purchased!

Here's a close-up of Gwen:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
AUD sentiments: Anything Goes with a sentiment
Perfect Sentiment challenges: Anything Goes with a sentiment (sentiment must be stamped)
Copic Marker Europe: Summer colours (green, yellow, orange and blue)

I hope you can join us at SOG this month!

She's gorgeous and a great card layout too! I had debated whether the accent color was an orange or sandy pink and went with the latter, but now I'm wishing I had done orange. LOL Love your card and great coloring! *Hugs
