CPS#117/CR84FN/C4C89

Today I have a 3-challenge card! I don't manage that very often, but these three challenges came together so well. The challenges I am entering are CardPatterns Sketch 117:

CR84FN 30 color challenge:


And Crazy 4 Challenges 89, which requests a card showing a favorite vacation spot or activity. Since my favorite thing to do on vacation is to READ (yes, even more than papercraft!), I chose this cute little reading hedgehog image:


Isn't it adorable? I'm not much into "cutesy" images, but I am trying to venture into those waters because I have a niece & nephew who kinda love that sort of thing! :-) This card is for my niece. She's only 15 mos. old, but my SIL took the sweetest pictures of her "reading" the other day. She was sitting cross-legged, paging through a book, and "talking" as if she was reading! How cute is that?! She only says one real word at this point ("Cooper," the name of their cat), but she was "reading!" I have high hopes for another bibliophile in the family. :-)

So, I flipped the CPS sketch on its side, used the soft color palette from CR84FN, and the subject matter from C4C! What do you think?

Did I know you colored so well? This little guy is adorable....but your coloring is fantastic. I read on vacations too. We take the travel trailer out to go camping and I read....magazines, that is. I'm immature that way...need lots of pictures *giggles* I love that you flipped the sketch too.

Oh Jill, this is adorable! I love that little hedgehog - and how his/her hair is sticking out of the oval and your fab coloring! Get ready for a LOT of coloring & cutesy cards/images - your niece & nephew will grow up fast and will soon be asking Aunty Jill to make them a card, etc.
