Grab Your Shades!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Better grab your shades beacuse it's going to get BRIGHT in here!  This cheerful color challenge comes from STACEY'S STAMPING STAGE.  I really wanted to use my Cheep Talk set, since I've had it for quite awhile and it has never seen ink, and I thought these fun colors would be perfect for it. 




I also used the sketch challenge from the STAMPING 411 blog.  This is their Saturday Sketch Challenge #146. This is just a great classic sketch.  Perfect to use for workshops or stamp camps.










Here's my card:
Do you have your shades ready?


Pretty bright huh?!  I used Pixie Pink for the card base, layered with Whisper White.  On the WW I used the Daisy Dash Jumbo Wheel with Yo-Yo Yellow ink.  Then I embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder. The Yo-Yo Yellow flower is made using the Floral Fusion Sizzlet die.  The Only Orange and Green Galore grosgrain has been retired for some time.  I figured the colors were retiring, I better use up that old ribbon!

Well I better get back to whatever it is I SHOULD be doing, instead of just doing what I WANT to be doing.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
