Open House at TCC - Inspired by... Challenge

It's finally here! Open House at The Crafter's Cafe! We have a ton of fun planned. There are challenges that start today and will be open all week. We'll have a different game with a prize every day. You can win a door prize just for stopping by and saying hi each day. We have a ton of great sponsors and fabulous prizes! We hope you'll stop by each day for fun and games.

Today, I have my sample cards for the challenges. We have five challenges that start today. I'm going to post each one in a different post. I hope you'll check them all out.
I think this is my last card for today (breathes sigh of relief). This challenge is "Inspired by..." For this challenge, we're asking folks to find a card or project that inspires them and make a project. The challenge is sponsored by Make It Crafty.

I'm always inspired by Zoe's coloring :-) I saw this card on her blog that really inspired me the other day. So I studied it carefully and tried my best to use shadows in the same way she did. It was a challenge, and I got to experiment with making shadows using my C grey copics after I'd colored the main color. I'm really happy with how it turned out! I used Lizzie with a Gift and the presents from Festive Elements by Make It Crafty. The image was large and I wanted to focus on the coloring so I left the card very simple.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Stampin' for the Weekend #23 - anything goes
2. Crafts and Me #66 - anything goes
3. Totally Papercrafts #97 - time to party
4. Charisma Cards #50 - anything goes
5. Paper Sundaes #100 - celebrate

Here are links to the products I used:

Happy Crafting!
