Christamsy but NOT..LOL!

Hi Everyone!! sorry I'm so late today. I got to go shopping for some new Scrapbooking supplies
Today's card features a image from TGF. I used this sketch from create4fun but I didn't realize that I cut it wrong it should have been left to right..o well.... My friend said that it's a cute card and that it looks Christmasy..LOL! which now I'll say its a Christmas card but actually the DP has cherries on it..shhh.. I think the DP is from graphic 45 but I do know that the card base is Cranberry from CTMH and the green solid is from SU. The flowers are a mixture of CTMH and Prima. The pretty red rhinestones are also from CTMH..The flower in her hair has stickles isn't it so pretty... the fibers are from my "stash"..I also used my Martha Stewart punch....OK on to my story that I promised..hehehe ...so on Saturday the four of us went to lunch in San Jose and Tim and kids said I could go to a scrapbooking store that's up there. So we get there and the boys (DH-DS) stay in the car but Chiy went in with me. When we were checking out, this store had Copic markers on sale by the register. I don't usually color my stamps anything but white toned because I'm not good with blending and I only have so many markers. I decided to be brave and get a marker that was more Mexican color, which by the way I'm full blooded Hispanic and Chiy is a little darker then me, so I open up brown markers and start striping her to see which one would match her, she's like Mom I hope this stuff washes out and I'm like Chiy how could anyone tell they match you babe.LOL!. so I finally decide on Sepia so if you look at your cop
ic markers and have a sepia color that's her skin tone..LOL!!!! I'm making this card and it originally started off using Sepia on her but it looks kinda funny so Chiy's in her bedroom and I send her the picture on my phone (OK everyone does that right? your in separate bedrooms but we text for are conversation) hehe and she sends me this text saying WOW she's dark! I'm like Chiy that's you! it's your skin tone, she's like I don't like it..LOL!.OK fine...so I made a new girl and everyone likes it better.. LOL! BUT I know what I did wrong... I should have made Tim come into the store and striped him with the marker because he's a 6'2 White guy (German) and then I would have known because I always stamp my images on white paper and I would have had a better idea of colors.... ( now keep in mind this is not supposed to be a offensive post we just like to have fun) :) .......so here ya go the final version....hope you like it :)
