My SU demonstrator sent me some sample of the new coloring pages from SU. I know they are all the rave right now but coloring all of that detail would drive me crazy. So I found a way to use the paper leaving it mostly black and white.
I went with a cameo effect and just colored the smaller vertical piece with Prismacolor pencils--just a quick color in, no shading or much details picking up the colors in the stripe behind which is from SU Cherry on Top designer pack. The sentiment is from a group of children's sayings I found at Michael's. If the recipient likes to color, she can fill in the rest.
This is with the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches

  2. Great idea! Your colored strip makes a nice contrast to the black and white image behind it. I'm not sure I'd have the patience to do an entire page of these drawings, either.

  3. What a great card! I love the look of just the colored panel!!
    Thanks for playing along at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

  4. I love coloring pages! I added them to my planner this year. I figure that will be a good break when I'm stuck in conference calls that I'm only there to listen. Super cute card! Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

  5. I agree with all of the above - great card!! Thanks for playing along at Tuesday Morning sketches!
