I made this card for a card layout challenge on SCS but ended up adding an extra strip of DSP so instead I went with a color combo challenge (taken with teal, very vanilla and close to cocoa) and a Clean and Simple challenge for masculine cards. (It's masculine right?)
The card base is Taken with teal, strips of retired DSP, and the cute monkey from the "You're Neat" retired set is on Very Vanilla. I used a blender pen and the stampin spots to color the image. The kite is actually a Craft ink pad and I LOVE the vividness of it! Close to those wonderful markers I want. :)
The finishing touches were punching the vanilla with the scallop edge punch and adding 3 brads. It just needed a little something. Again, not the best card, but I'm learning!
