Emery the Pit Bull!

Good Thursday Morning!
I made a fun little card today....this is Emery the Pit Bull...from Doodle Palace, isn't he cute? I'm playing along with the Doodle Palace challenge #2! Can you believe they gave everyone who played in the first challenge two freebies....how awesome is that!!!!!!

I used prismas to color Emery and pastels to shade the background in teal, the papers, K&co. I really like these colors together! I didn't realize we were to use summery colors with the sketch. oops! But wait...what exactly are summery colors, it's summer now and as I look outside, I see....mud from all the summer showers...I see yellow in all the wheat fields and I see a blue sky now that the showers have passed! Hey, these are summery colors! lol

Here are the challenges...
Doodle Palace~sketch & summery colors!
Paper Blooms~ animals.
Creative Inspiration (wed)~distressing.
The Pink Elephant~animals.
Creative Belli~metal tags......I improvised on this one, I do not have a lot of metal. So I used a METAL brad for the doggy TAG, get it?
And finally, the reason I had those summery K&co papers out in the first place...
My Grafico~brown & teal!

Hope you're enjoying your day! I'm working on a few projects and if I stop ripping them apart and starting over again, I'll show them to you! Today is my friend Lorraine's birthday, be a dear and pop over to her blog with some love! Happy Birthday Lorraine!

Blessings to all who read here!

love that dog Maria and i agree with you on the colours of course they can be summer. Here in England summer colours are black clouds grey rain and muddy puddles.
