All Occasion card Using Conie Fong Emma and Ellie with CTMH Every Little Thing and Mix In Paper

Hello Friends!  I hope you are having time to create.  I know that FL residents are stressed right now; which includes my daughter and her two children.  I am praying that the current/and all hurricanes go back out to sea where they can't hurt anyone or anything.  I lived there 8 yrs. and it is so hard to know what to do when a hurricane is coming; because of all the variations that can and do happen.  We evacuated with Hurricane Aaron; which was a Category 5 and drove all the way to MO to get away from it.  

I am still feeling out of sorts since our overseas vacation.  I know it will take some time to adjust to the time difference and all the food changes, etc.  I have taken the time to color/create; just because it helps me to feel better; even when my body is totally stressed out.

CTMH now has Custom12 and Custom24 packs of cardstock; where you choose any colors you want in increments of 2 and you decide which ones are your favorites.  I received my first Custom24 and love it!  

I colored this adorable Conie Fong "Emma & Ellie with wings".  I didn't realize that I had never used this image.  Time just gets away from me and I forget what I have used versus what I haven't.  I love this sweet image.  I had to use one of our new CTMH papers called "Every Little Thing" and also inside the card, I used CTMH Mix In paper; which is awesome, as well.  

My colors did not photograph very well; so I did the best I could with them; but I am disappointed that you can't see how great they look in person.  The cardstock colors are CTMH Wisteria and Mint.  The lavender wants to look blue; but it is lavender.  Everything matches so well.  The butterflies are also much softer colors, and they match perfectly.  After an hour trying to get the colors correct; I give up.
