From Courtney's Closet Challenge #38-Avery's Debut

Ahhh...Welcome little Avery to her debut on From Courtney's Closet Challenge. Libby is changing things up a little and once a month she will be introducing one of her stamping friends cutie---the challenge to be named Courtney's Playdate. Hmmm...I might have to get little Cole dressed up and enter him for consideration...Make sure to visit Libby's Playdate challenge debut this week!

Now Avery's outfit really threw me for a loop...all those wild colors (which I have read on Allison's blog, sort of fits Avery's little personality LOL). Although I keep thinking this card is a little ODD for my tastes, it is growing on me...I am usually more of an earthtone type person, so this challenge really had me thinking (sort of like when I have to use orange!) Little Avery belongs to Allison of Stamping When I Can blog fame!

I also used Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #65 ( TSSC65) for this card. I flipped the sketch on its head and it matched the design on Ave's little outfit perfectly!

Oh wow...look at you getting out of your comfort zone...bravo! What a neat take on the sketch...I think you did such a super job (and those colors were hard...they look good on Ave but whoa, hard to put together on a card!). Cheers!
