Hip Hip Hooray! - Tasia's PCMB Challenge

You may remember my posting about little online community where I hang out with a great group of ladies. We talk about crafting and life in general. We are very small, but a lot of fun. Each week we have a challenge, and this week it was Tasia's turn to host it. Tasia is our newest member and I'm not quite sure how she found it, but I'm sure glad she did. She is just so fun and upbeat. I look forward to her posts every day.

Tasia's challenge was to use black and white with one other color, a sentiment and at least one non-pattern paper. For my other color, I chose lime green. I know red and yellow are often popular with black and white, and I wanted to do something a little different. The image is from Penny Black and was colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with mineral spirits. The sentiment is Studio G. I did have to cheat and use a tiny bit of pink on the kitty. I didn't think he'd look right with green nose, ears and paw pads. Hopefully that's not enough to detract from the overall look of the card.
