Phindy's Place Challenge #3 - Favorite Phindy image

I can't believe it's already time for 3rd challenge at Phindy's Place! This time it's to use your favorite Phindy's image.

That was a toughie since I sincerely love most of her work but since Mrs Comfy was the first one I discovered and fell in love with I picked one of the images from that line I had been stroking for a while!
I used my good staple favorites - MME papers and kept it very simple effectively just creating a frame for the artwork. Only embellishments I used are Card Candy which are basically fake brads. :) The sentiment was generated with computer and printed on patterned paper scraps, I don't know where I came upon that quote but I thought it very fitting.


All the colouring was done with Copic markers again with little accents added with Sakura Souffle, Glaze and Stardust pens.

Zig-zag border is from MME die-cut paper, I cut it off and glued it onto the edges of card and built all the other layers on top of it. Added tiny dots with dimensional pearly paint as well, just to make it pop more.
Don't forget to head to Phindy's challenge blog to see the gorgeous examples from the rest of DT and then pick out YOUR favorite image and get crafting! Dying to see your work!
I would like to enter following challenges

Sundays With Crissy - Dots
Raise The Bar - Color me Happy (my favorite colours teal, dark yellow, green)
Pile It On - Birthday with a sweet treat

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
Annika

As always, you have created a fantastic card and the clean lines make Mrs. Comfy pop. I love the sentiment and may just have to borrow it. Could you please teach me how to colour when I grow up?

Too gorgeous! Your coloring is absolutely stellar, Annika! I love the color combo in this one. I also love the way you finish off the inside of your cards. I used to do that, but now have a stack of about 50 cards with only the fronts done. Yikes, better get busy, huh?
