Color Challenge 19


Can we say, BRRR! Yesterday our Easter Egg hunt was held outside and all the kids were bundled up like it was the middle of winter! I think it was the fastest hunt we've held cause everyone was ready to get back inside and warmed up. Now that our Easter Party is done, I just have to help the Easter Bunny finish up a couple of things before next weekend. But first, I took time to play along with the color challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary. These colors intrigued me!


I wanted to create a special card for a friend I hadn't seen in a while. I took this opportunity to use these colors as my jumping off point. I think it turned out cute! I used the "thinking of you" stamp from the Sheltering Tree set to stamp the background. I then used the Little Letters Thinlets to die cut out the words "Miss You" and backed it with piece of Soft Sky card stock to really make them 'pop' through the Rose Red card stock.  



Can you guess where the little birdie is from? The Hey Valentine stamp set!! I told you that I have yet to make a valentine with that set! LOL I thought he would be cute standing there holding a single balloon from the Balloon Bash set. He and his balloon are popped up on Dimensionals for a little depth. Happy Stamping!

  1. I love that little bird carrying his balloon Jennifer - such a great alternative use of this stamp set which shows birds are for ever, not just for Valentines! I love the way you created your custom DSP using your repeating sentiment too - very clever. Thanks for joining us for our colour challenge over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
