I'm enjoying the Papertrey Ink challenges as part of their anniversary celebration this month. It's so fun to see how everyone interprets the challenge in their own way! Today's challenge is a color challenge with ten possible color combinations to choose from for our project. (see them here) I picked the combo of Hibiscus Burst, Sweet Blush, Ripe Avocado, and Spring Moss. Since I'm easing myself back into stamping, I chose the one that appealed to me the most and sparked an immediate idea. We can submit a card for each color combo, but I'm just not that fast a stamper! :) Besides, I'm longing for warmer weather and these colors remind me of spring.
Isn't it cute? I embossed the flower from Friends Till the End and then cut it out and popped it up for dimension. I stamped polka dots on the pink panel and then stamped the sentiment repeatedly on the green panel, finishing it off with distressed edges. I used ribbon saved from a long-ago package (yeah for using up stash!) and pleated it with glue dots. If my sewing machine wasn't up in the attic, I probably would have run a line of white stitching down the length instead of using glue dots. (note to self: find a small, inexpensive sewing table to set up somewhere) I used this month's SFYTT sketch for my layout.
I plan on trying out the other color combos at some point, but there is no way I could crank out ten cards in just one day! lol
