Challenge Card Sails Along with Color

As Hannibal would say (A-Team), "I love it when a plan comes together."
I love this card, when all the patterned papers, paper piecings and bright colors are put together! Using another Hambo Stamps digi-image, BALLOON, I arranged CTMH and Paper Pizzazz patterned papers on a square card base. I then used Copics to color three layers of my image. The first layer is pure Copic-colored; the second image is on top of the first, and includes patterned paper-piecing on the balloon; the third layer is of the high-flying girl and the basket, all Copic-colored. The layers are put together with dimensional tape, and all lie on a multi-colored star cut from another piece of patterned paper and outlined in black.
I embellished with MS grossgrain ribbon bow, a colored and shaped paper clip, pearls that form tails off the background stars, and finally, an unused cell phone charm!!! The sentiment comes with the digi-image, which you can find at HAMBO STAMPS.
