Sassy in the City Relay: Round 3 - Miranda Sassy
Hello! I know I've been a little quiet on here this week and this will be why: I am busy running a fabulous relay over at Sassy Studio Designs! It's a Sassy in the City relay celebrating our 700 members over on Paper Craft Planet! Now unfortunately, if this is the first you are hearing about it, it's too late to join in as it's a progressive relay. You had to snag the first free image from the SSD blog and play along with the challenge set for her before you could advance to the next round - and next free image! We are now beginning Round 3, and I finally had time to play!
This is Miranda Sassy! She is the successful, Type A lawyer with the sarcastic wit who is cynical about men! But when it comes to her friends she is their confidante and voice of reason. Our challenge to the relay participants is "No Nonsense". They are being asked to create a CAS (Clean And Simple) project with this image in order to move on to Round 4. They have until 10pm EDT on June 29th to do so.
I needed a birthday card for a co-worker anyway so I decided it was the perfect excuse to actually play along this time. On the show Miranda is a fiery redhead, but I needed a brunette, to better match my recipient. I opted for raven tresses as I found it more pleasing with my chosen color palette. She is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped on top of the current sketch (#72) from Try Stampin' on Tuesday. I am NOT very good at CAS so this one really was a challenge for me. I really had to resist adding little extras. The sketch helped because it is pretty enough on its own, but it was still hard to walk away from the flowers, ribbons, trinkets, bling, and embellishments! After I took my photo I considered tricking it out, but decided, in the end, to let the CAS stand. It was a good call too - my co-worker loved it! So much so that she promptly posted it to facebook! And tagged me! Oopsie! I didn't think about that one when using an as yet to be revealed image! lol
Now if you missed out on the relay, don't worry; you can still take part in the fun and festivities! We are selecting one random comment from the SSD blog for each round to win an image of their choice. AND we even more activities going on over at the Planet - trivia, contests, prizes, and more! We hope you'll stop by!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Ruby's Rainbow: #31-Black, White, and One Other Color (purple)
- Anything Goes Challenge Blog: #70-Polka Dot with a Birthday Theme
- Bearly Mine: #41-Anything Goes
- Party Time Tuesdays: #74-Anything Goes
Thanks for visiting! I hope you're having a wonderful week so far! I'll be back with more Sassy fun this weekend...
