Age Takes Its Toll

This card was created for The Color Throwdown's 100th challenge and the adorable little old lady is from River City Rubber Works .  (Don't you love the way her hand hangs over the edge of the frame?)  The Copic markers I chose were B91 (for Baja Breeze), R29 (for Real Red), R81 (for Regal Rose), and YG11 (for Certainly Celery).  All the papers that coordinated beautifully with this challenge are from Basic Grey's Euphoria collection.  I also used my Spellbinder's Scalloped Edge Frame dies to cut out my frame.  I cut this out twice, using two different pieces of patterned paper.  I chose the blue for my background here and I used the green insert on the inside of my card.  Finally, I accented her ears and around the frame with tiny pearls.

The inside of the card looks like this:

I distressed the inside of the card base with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks before adhering my green insert with my stamped message, which is also from River City Rubber Works.  I created my own colored paper for the quilled flowers using glossy paper and alcohol inks.

You still have a little time to enter this challenge (11:59pm Monday).  So go have fun and get creative!
