Favorite Color Challenge Card

It's Thursday again, and that means a new challenge over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday! Our twist for this week is to use your favorite color(s)! That's a bit tricky for me since I love the whole rainbow, but for this week, I went with the lovely combination of pink, green and blue. They look especially nice with this vintage paper from Graphic 45.
Our sponsors this month are Gina Marie Designs and Ppinkydolls. Gina Marie Designs is giving the following X-Stitched Rectangle Die Set away to this month's winner (U.S. addresses only), and we are also being sponsored by Ppinkydolls this month (digital stamps available to worldwide addresses for that prize). You can check out Gina Marie Design's dies and stamps at and Ppinkydolls digi stamps at
I made a square top fold card using the largest die in the Spellbinders Grand Squares die set. Then I die cut 2 X Stitch Rectangles from Gina Marie Designs and overlapped them slightly to give me the size I wanted behind my digi and sentiment. I adhered them to a cream panel and added a couple of the flower stamps from another area of the Graphic 45 paper I used. I popped them up with foam tape. I also added a few Dew Drops to the card.
I colored the digi with Copic and MEXPY markers and die cut her with a Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval die. I also printed this same digi on Kraft paper and then fussy cut the puppy out and adhered him with a foam square to give the image a bit of dimension. I stamped the sentiment on some of the back of this same Graphic 45 cardstock and die cut it with a smaller size of the Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval die set. I adhered both the digi and the sentiment with foam tape. The sentiment is from Gina Marie Designs clear stamp set "Great Bible Quotes."
