MOJO248 and colourQ challenge #144

Happy Friday friends - so glad you've stopped in to visit me today!  It's a gorgeous sunny day this morning so I want to finish up a couple cards and go out and play today for a bit.  My card today is based on the MOJO Monday 248 contest sketch (see below) and the colourQ challenge #144 which challenges us to use the colors of Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Night of Navy and Bordering Blue (see below).
You'll notice that I chose to flip the MOJO sketch and that my elements are a bit larger than on the sketch so that I could fit my image on the card and stay as true as possible to this great sketch. I have a confession, sometimes I am intimidated by the colours selected at ColourQ but I love to give them a try regardless. This time though I had this darling little stamp sitting on my desk waiting to be used and the colors seemed to work really well.  I paper pieced this little guy's shirt (what was I thinking - those little sleeve pieces are tiny!!) and colored the rest of the image with a blender pen.     

Well... I off to do some chores before I enjoy the sunshine a bit.  Thanks again for visiting - I hope you like this card.  There is some great inspiration at ColourQ to see and the MOJO248 contest is still open for a couple of days.  The prize you could win is a Verve stamp set of your choice.  I've been lucky enough to win twice so far - so awesome!  I encourage you to check out these blogs and participate if you can.  Hugs!

Supplies (all from SU except the stamp): Cardstock - Whisper White, Night of Navy. DSP - Sweet Shop (retired), Build A Bear Patterns (retired), and Night of Navy from the Designer Series Paper Stack (regals collection). I used the scalloped edge border punch and the 1" circle punch (sentiment). 
Ink colors used are Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy (sentiment and shoes), Soft Suede (hair) and Blushing Blossom (skin).  White bakers twine is my ribbon (don't you love how it looks like the strings on the balloons?).  Stamped image is from Stampendous called "Balloon Kiddo".
