Add a Little Color

Just got home from agility class with Geena Bea.  She was really on top of her game tonight!  We had a lot of fun playing and visiting with our friends.
Now I have a very tired dog...yea!  She will sleep a lot tomorrow which is a good thing since I have to take my car into the shop! UGH...

I am so proud of Margaret, dipping her toes into the digital world! 
If you didn't see her post from yesterday, go check it out.
This is totally unplanned, but my card also uses a digital image, 2 as a matter of fact.  I used freebies from The Alley Way stamps, as I haven't managed to shop there yet, though my wish list is growing rapidly, faster than my paychecks arrive...which unfortunately is only monthly!

The challenge this time at The Alley Way  is a photo inspiration.

I went with the color scheme by painting the brush tips the colors in the photo.  I used Atyou Spicas for the brushes to make them shine, while the handles, which are colored with a Copic.  This is one of my RARE CAS cards.  I used a sparkly silver/gray cs to mount the image.  Both cs are cut out with Nesties.  I printed the sentiment directly on the card base and added a touch of color.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS - codeword: Glitter
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
Cuttin and Stampin - Clean and Simple

Thanks for stopping by!  
Margaret will be back tomorrow with something great to share, I'm sure!
