DYSU20 - Check it out...!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far? I sure do...and I have some fun news to share.

One of my creations was selected in the *Top 3* over at the DYSU blog a few weeks ago and because of that, I have the honor of being a Guest Designing for the DYSU #20 today ..yeah! If you are not familiar with the DYSU Challenge blog then please hop on over there and check them out!


The DYSU20 Challenge today is a Color Combo ~ using *Celery, White and Sea Glass Blue*!!!

Here is my take on the colors ......



I was provided with this beautiful digi image from *The Stamping Boutique* called She Who Paints the Forest. After printing the image out I cut it with the Spellbinder Label 17 Die and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ E0000, E000, E50, E51, YG11, G21, G24, R22, R24, Y21 B0000, B000, B00 plus Colorless Blender. The DP in the background is from the PTI Bitty Dot Basic Paper Collection. I added a punched out MS Border on the side and embellished the rest of my card with a SU Certainly Celery Ribbon, Button, matching Scrapper's Floss, Prima Flowers, Glitter and some Pearls.

I would like to thank the DYSU team for inviting me today and I hope you all come out and play along with us! Have a wonderful day and I will actually be back with another card tomorrow...hugs ~S~

Gorgeous Silke! Your coloring is so soft and lovely. I'm still working on my coloring skills and most of the time I just give up. LOL!!! Congrats on being a guest designer.

I was reading your bio on DYSU and was surprised to see the town where my parents (well just my step dad) now are living. He teaches at the university there. I have been to Statesboro 3 times and it is a lovely town.
