It's Thursday! What rainy sort of yucky and a little chilly weather we've been having now for the past two weeks. I'm waiting for some nice sunshine to arrive and dry all this up. It's making spring planting practically impossible and the barnyards just a muddy mess. Jack has been itching to play outside and get some miles on his new power wheels tractor he got for his birthday. Until then, it's another color challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary. When I saw the colors I was like, yep, that's what the days have been feeling like with all this dreary weather we've been having.
I alternately stamped one of the leaves from Vintage Leaves in Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake onto a piece of Whisper White card stock to create a fun background. You know me, I love a good background on cards! LOL
Using the coordinating framelits, I die cut the large maple leaf out of Vellum and then stamped the splatter from Gorgeous Grunge (may this set never leave!) in Basic Grey ink and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I die cut the word "happy" from the Hello You Thinlets and added the "BIRTHDAY" from the Crazy About You stamp set. I was actually surprised how quickly this card came together as I thought I might struggle with the colors chosen. I hope you decide to play along with us this week. What do these colors inspire you to stamp?
