Black and White + 1

The challenge over at saturated canary challenge is to use black and white plus one other color
I was super excited to color up Krista's newest freebie
I even bought a new copic marker for the occassion.
Here she is in her close up!

I colored her using mostly copic markers, and for the black polka dots and black stripes
I used enamel accents
And the whole card.

I'm also entering this card into some other challenges, there is texture on the cutout of the digi stamp, and the buttons were just too much to turn down.  The patterned paper has been in my stash for a while
you could say I've been hoarding it I guess.
and the fun little sentiment is from a new pack of clear stamps I picked up at Joann's this week
I added the eyelets to the side of the sweet sentiment, and ran a strip of washi tape behind that. 
Finally, I had to... HAD TO make an envelope to go with (mostly cause the card turned out to be an odd size) 
 I think they look like a fine pair! 
Hope you enjoy my creation
