Last weeks color challenge just didn't "EUREKA-I've got it!!" for me until later in the week when I got this digi stamp from Christy Crolls site. Then I had the eureka moment; so here it is just in time for this weeks totally different color challenge (which is right on time for me!! guffaw!) The story behind the title is that a young lady at my son's high school won a fundraising draw for a 21" flatscreen with built in DVD player, but she already had her own and the organizer asked her if she wanted to donate it to the highest fund raiser, which happened to be my son who at first refused, but didn't need too much convincing and so arrived home with it!! I made this card to thank her for such a selfless act of generosity. I colored this cutie pie with copics, did some punching, embossing and embellishing (my red bling is from Sue aka Perk aka coffeestamper and was just what I needed and wouldn't otherwise have had!) The wonderful grass technique belongs to the wonderfully talented Paula Williamson.
