Hi Stamping Friends!
On my trek to make some thank you cards, I decided to combine two challenges. The sketch challenge SSC116 comes from the Stamping 411 blog found HERE. Here's the sketch:
And the inspiration challenge comes from Makeesha Byl's blog Inkspirations found HERE. Here's the inspiration piece this week:
Make sure you check all the other challenge players on both blogs. It's one of the ways I've found some really awesome blogs. I love when I find a Stampin' Up! only blog. Especially if it includes a challenge!
So here's my card:
As you can tell, the colors really inspired me! I used Yo-Yo Yellow and Brilliant Blue. It was fun to work with Bold Brights. This is such a summery combo. Bummer is there isn't much in the way of embellishements in these two colors. I could only find the brads. The ribbon is really Summer Sun and it doesn't match as much as I would like, but it works! I used the stamp set Eastern Blooms and Matchbox Messages for the sentiment. The impressions folder is a new one out of the Holiday Mini called Petals-A-Plenty.
I also have another Christmas Jingle card from my upcoming Christmas Stamp-A-Stack:
Let me know if you are coming ASAP! Thanks for stopping by!
