Be Couragous

Welcome, you should have arrived here from Tina's blog.  If not, you can start at the beginning here at SSD and follow along.
If you've noticed, I'm new to the Sassy Studio Designs Design team.  And if you noticed that, did you know that I am their  FIRST guy design team member.  Yep, the Sassy Sisters have a brother now.  I'm loving being their little brother and part of the team.
Back to the challenge.  It's a Bingo challenge.

I played along using the Ribbon, something RED, and Flowers. And I got the Cowardly Lion Sassy as my  image.  My Red is the ribbon, cardstock boarders, rhinesones and the image of the flowers.  What type of flowers come to mind when you think of the Land of Oz?  Of course that would be Poppies.  The poppies image is from a Poppies seed packet.  There is also a flower image in the brown DP background.

So here's my card for the release hop.


Stuff I Used:
Image-Cowardly Lion Sassy digital image by Sassy Studio Designs
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Hair-Y21, YR21, E33
Lips-R20, R22
Eyes-G02, G05
Outfit/Boots-E31, E33, E37, E43, E71, R32, R35
Bow-R32, R35
DP-DCWV Stack 8
Ribbon-Darice Ohhh So Trendy accents 3/8" Satin Dots Red
Poppies image-the Page Seed Co. Poppy seed packet
Rhinestones-Martha Stewart red rhinestones
Courage medal-Paper House Productions Sticky Pix Cardstock stickers "the Wizard of Oz"
I added Glossy Accents to the Courage medal and used it on the inside of the card.
Sentiment-Computer generated

I loved coloring the image.  And what is a Sassy Lion without a pair of Christian Louboutin boots.

Aren't all of the new images terrific and the previous DT's projects amazing.  Leave me a comment and then head over to Carrie's blog and see what she's created.  And if you missed any, here's the complete list of blogs in today's hop.

Thanx for looking, I know you have the courage to comment and then tell the Wizard I said Hi.
