MM with..........Graceybaby!!

Hello everyone,
Today at the Farm Fresh challenge blog, our Sparkle chose Graceybaby to case for the Mystery Monday challenge.  YAY!!  Her card is so cute and makes you smile.  Love Grace's diversity of colors and how she pulls everything together.

Created by Grace O. - TGF image Stamping Anya

To see how the design team cased Grace's card, click HERE.  You'll find lots of fun inspiration over there.  For my card I used the adorable Dylan from the Roll Call kit.  My friend's son is turning 1 and today he is having his first birthday party.  I used the USC colors (cardinal & gold) because my friend is a USC fanatic, he's also a graduate of that school.  I added in a bit of baby blue to match the baby blue eyes I colored in on Dylan.  No, it's not because baby blue is part of the UCLA (blue & gold) colors. LOL!  That's my story and I'm sticking to it!  LOL!

There's my Copic colored balloons again.  Well of course they're there.  It's a birthday card after all.  hehehe.  I altered the number on Dylan's jersey by wiping away the 31 and hand drawing in the 1.  I really love how this turned out.  I think the baby blue adds the perfect touch to break up all the reds and yellows. 

Here's what I did on the inside for fun:

I think the stars look like the Carl's Jr. logos..  LOL!  Wasn't meant to be that way, hopefully I'll be the only one to point that out.  hehehe...

Alrighty, it's your turn to play along and case Miss Grace.  Can't wait to see the results. 

Big hugs to you all.  Have a wonderful week!!  Mahalo for stopping by!  :)
