STV's Center Stage Spotlight Group Hop - Color Challenge

Hi there - so glad you popped in ....
The STV Center Stage Spotlight Team hop for the month of May is a Color Challenge Blog Hop and the 
color challenge is brought to us by Miesje 
thank you Miesje!

We were to create a card or project with the following color combination:
 a non-Christmas red and green card with a neutral color Black, White or Tan.

If you are hopping should have come from the wonderfully talented blog of Lori McAree

I chose to combine two of GKD's stamp sets

hope you like
I spread a thin coat of Gesso on one side and almost covered up my red pattern designer paper. Didn't mean to have it so thick... and then stamped a background on both sides of my card using images from both stamp sets. (the brown side already had a grid image on it).
 Stamped the birdhouse and flowers on scraps of white and colored them with Copics:
E04, 31, 18...YG63, 67, R85, C2
did some faux stitching and added my pearls with a Vivid Pearl Pen (love that stuff!)

My base cardstock is from GKD - Asparagus...everything else is stash!!!

Hope my mixed media card inspires you to join in our your next stop is off to our sweet team mate Kay Simmons

and remember....
Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! 
Look for the announcement on Tuesday, May 28

Celebrating Suzanne's Birthday!!

Do you know this beautiful person????
Oh wait... ooops...wrong one. Sorry. Do you know THIS beautiful person????
Arrrrghhhh... that's NOT her!!!! Wait wait... let's get this right!!!! Do you know HER?????

THAT'S her!!!!!!! YES!!! The BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!!! Oh and honestly... yeah... those pics above... yep... those REALLY are her too!!! If you know Suzanne J. Dean... you KNOW this!!

Today is Suzanne's birthday and well, we ALL KNOW, Suzanne would NOT want to celebrate a birthday any other way than with her favorite country star AND a favorite sports star!!! Right???!!!

And also today, Suzanne's, Color Me Creative Design Team wanted to take a little of her time to show her how much we enjoy, appreciate and love her by hopping along to share a little birthday fun and creativity with her. Join us in wishing her that the next year is filled with even more memories and love than anyone could ever hope for!

The design team went with a "Teal/Aqua" theme today. Suzanne had mentioned her desire to "look like a mermaid"... LOL... so heck, we'll play along. (Old age is old age, peeps... just smile and say... "that's nice, honey." LOL)

I didn't go with the mermaid theme because this image from Saturated Canary must have been drawn with Suzanne in mind LOL - it just reminds me of her so much...
check out the footwork I added
 heee heeeeheeeeeeee...if you are curious about the toe - check out Suzanne's blog HERE 
She tends to have a little trouble keeping them out of harm's way
