Can You Case It, #100, A Milestone Challenge

Greetings friends!  This is an exciting week for us at Can You Case It!  We are celebrating our 100th Challenge!  Woot! Woot!  Raise the roof!  It's a party...no seriously, it's a party and you are invited. We are celebrating this milestone with a design team member blog hop.  Be sure to visit all of our blogs in the hop to be eligible for prizes.  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of our blogs. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!  Lol!!! Check out the sketch!

Now for the card I created using this sketch.  This card is full of positive energy, it's raw, organic, natural.  It is by far one of my favorites I have ever created.  The focal point is my new favorite stamp.  Of course it is from Unity.  It is from one of their new sets, keep it simple.  I stamped it twice to create this beautiful bloom of feathers.  It was stamped in ripe persimmon (Ranger/Tim Holtz).  I used colored pencils (Faber Castell) to fill in this beauty.  The water colored background was created using a yellow gelato and a blood orange gelato.  Pattern paper is Basic Grey.  Coral corrugated paper is Fancy Pants.  The sentiment and striped background are stamps also from Unity from a set called Brave Spirit Diamond Stripes.  Sentiment was stamped in ripe persimmon and diamond stripes in broken china (Ranger/Tim Holtz).  The cream/gold hemp is Lawn Fawn and wood and chipboard arrows are Basic Grey.  I picked up the wood veneer feathers from a scrapbook convention.







Thanks for hopping with us.  The winner on my blog will receive a set of brand new stamps, so make sure you comment.  You have until Friday, January 1, 2016, to leave a comment.  The winner will be announced Sunday, January 3, 2016.  This is so exciting.  Let's have some fun.  Here is the hop list:
