Go Badgers!

t’s Friday and time for the Colour Crazy Challenge. This challenge is an “Anything Goes” but it adds a requirement; the creation needs to include coloring in “any colouring medium you like, onto any project you like, and in any colours you like.” I’ve never outgrown my love for coloring… which is why making cards is stress therapy for me!! 
This week's sponsor is Scribbles Designs and for my DT card I made a birthday card that features a digi image from Scribbles Designs named Badger. I didn’t know much about badgers except that it is the mascot of one of the four Universities of my state, Wisconsin (Go Badgers!) so I did some web research to help with coloring the image. I also learned that they are mostly nocturnal creatures and many live in the northern woodlands of the state, so I used an old picture postcard from Northern Wisconsin as my background. The inside sentiment is a freebie from Simply Crafts magazine. And the front sentiment, from Scribbles Designs, is named Eat Cake. (I'll have mine with ice cream on the side, please!) 
I’m entering this challenge into several challenges including Outlawz Color (the scenic photo on my card holds several of the colors in the Inspiration Photo), Double D’s Book Covers (my card reflects the book cover on the lower left- night scene and includes a critter!), and Di’s Digi Stamps (Badger starts with the letter B.)

A friend who knows that I love all things coffee gave me a packet of these wonderful B&W beverage napkins a few years ago. I made this card by separating the layers of one of the napkins, which leaves the coffee cup slightly translucent.  I slipped a scrap of patterned paper behind the cup and love how the red stripes show through.  I added freebie sentiment and sparkly Christmas stickers to add a little bling!
