Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #52 --- It's a 1st Anniversary Hop!

Ask me how much I LOVE Mo Mannings Digital Pencil!! Well, today I have an extra special reason ---

I won the drawing for last week's challenge!!  Woo Hoo! 

And since I just had a birthday this week this was a surprise present and I got to select it myself!  For my free image I chose "Diva" and can't wait to get her colored.  Thanks, Mo!

This is also a big birthday for Mo's DP2.  They are celebrating their first anniversary of the challenge blog!  Congrats to Mo and her team.  You really have to go check out the challenge blog here and hop along.  The theme is all colors of the rainbow and each team member made a project using a single color.  They are amazing!  But before you hop over there, please take a look at my card for the challenge:

 My favorite color is blue, all shades and tones of blue.  I especially love the aqua and torquoise shades.  Purple isn't one of my favorite colors, but it does complement the aqua quite well.  This card is for my good friend's birthday.  She just turned 50 (but looks 30) and she likes bright colors.  The paper is DCWV Pocket Full of Posies collection, accented with hot pink. The gorgeous flowers are Prima.

This image of Bella was irresistable, especially with the big question mark candle on the cake.  I colored her with Copics. 

The sentiment on the inside carries on the teasing we've been giving her about turning 50.  Although, since I just had a birthday, and I am older than she, I won't rub it in too much :-). The border on the light blue paper is from the Martha Stewart punch around set --- I just can't get enough of these!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Your comments are not only welcomed but appreciated.  Ok, now, don't forget to hop along with the DP2 Design Team!  Start here.

Barb, this is soooo cute!! I am just browsing through and looking at some of the other entries in Mo's challenge this week. This image really made me smile. You did a great job coloring her and I adore your color choices. And you will have sooooo much fun coloring "Diva". She was actually one of my very first purchase of Mo's stamps and I adore her! Just wanted to say "hi" from one Mo fan to another!!
