Diva Coffee Break 121 and Inspiration 174

Two posts in one day... it must have been a good stamping weekend!

I love the Stampin' Up! Only (SUO) challenges over at Diva Coffee Break Designs DCBD121. This week was a sketch challenge. Here's the sketch:

Saturday is always a fun challenge day over at SplitcoastStampers. It's the day they do the Inspiration Challenge IC174, which pretty much means look at some stuff, be inspired, and create anything that you want! It's one of the easiest challenges to participate in. This is what I was inspired by on the French Bull website:

I loved the colors in this bedding. I have the hardest time coming up with fresh color combos. Too bad there weren't more color challenges out there in blog world. Maybe I should start one... HA!! Anyhoo, my colors are Pink Passion, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White. Here's my card using the new Occasions Mini set Great Friend:

I really love how this turned out! I would never have come up with this color combo of my own. The DSP is also new from the Occasions Mini called A Walk In The Park. It's hard to see, but the Pink Passion card base is embossed with the Texturz Plates. Behind the clear buttons is a 3/4" circle of DSP from Bella Rose. I'm so sad that Kiwi Kiss will be retiring in July, because that means almost all my fave DSP will be retiring too!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
