Through the Purple Haze Challenges #4

Welcome to another challenge at Through the Purple Haze Challenges. This week our sponsor is Crafty Sentiments and our theme is "Cards with Tickets or Tags". 

I made a card using Tess Summer Fun from Crafty Sentiments and one of the tags from the Tickets-Just Words Set 1.

First, I printed my Tess digi onto white Xpress-it cardstock and then printed the same digi and the ticket onto patterned paper that was a lavender blue with dots. I cut out the dress from the patterned paper and the ticket and put those aside while I colored in the image with copic markers.

After I was done coloring, I used some glue to paper-piece the dress.

Here's my card.....still practicing the hair technique. Sometimes it turns out great....and other times, well, not too happy with this one but I'll keep practicing. When I ask the other ladies how their hair looks so good, they just say, Practice, Practice, Practice!

Good luck in the Challenge! Hope we have a lot of entries! The prize is three digis from our sponsor Crafty Sentiments!

Happy Hopping!!
