Anki's Sweetheart plays...

... soccor/football! Say hello to Isac, another new Sweetheart image from Anki's 2nd release, exclusively sold at Susana's Custom Art & Card Designs! Think of all the great ways you could personalize him! Apart from making him the appropriate team colors, you could add a number/letter to his shirt even a symbol. How cool would that be?!

Today is Try It Out Tuesday over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart! Design team leader, Suzanne, wanted us to use Fourth of July colors this time! I immediately thought of Isac. But instead of using the traditionally bright colors of red/white & blue, I went with more muted shades aiming toward a masculine card! The papers are from Summer Driggs! I used Prisma markers for the bit of coloring! And the only embellishment, an old brass button from my grandma's button jar! It even has a ring of stars on it...a divine find!
Here are the challenges this card hits today...
TIOT~red, white & blue
Stamps & Smiles~sketch
The Corrosive Challenge~'your country' theme
Color Chef~red, white & blue
and
The Pink Elephant~favorite colors, I went with these Americana colors!

Hope you'll hop over to the Follow Your Heart blog and checkout the rest of the beautiful DT creations! Well, that's two posts for me today, so now I'm gonna go put my feet up and eat my bon-bons! Enjoy your day! Praying peace and much love over you! Blessings!
