Color Me Happy Challenge Card

Cardz TV has a new challenge this week, Color Me Happy and holy moly it's a good one. I mean down right tough.

The challenge is to use the colors marigold yellow, royal blue, purple and grey. You are also allowed to use minimal splashes of white and black, thank goodness.

I started by pulling the colored papers from my scrap box. I then just stared at them almost saying forget it. But then it became a game to really come up with something.
In the end it turned out pretty cute.
I am headed to NYC tomorrow for work this week and this little shopper reminds me of the city. Not that I will have time to shop, but I am going to be very close to 5th avenue so can't help but window shop here and there.
The shopping diva is from LD Holiday Shoppers svg set. Gotta love those "blue suede" boots!

Here's how I did it....
A2 base card on white card stock
Diva shopper cut at 4.25" from LD holiday shopper svg file
All papers from my scrap stash
EK border punch
Stampin Up purple ribbon
Sticker gems from my stash
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper Pinka-licious stamp set
Stickles for some sparkle on her coat trim
