I made this card a few weeks ago, I was very pleased with the way it came out. This week's color challenge was to use Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip & Garden Green, I couldn't help but to think of this card when I saw the challenge. The only difference in my card & the challenge is that I used Old Olive instead of Garden Green. Who would of thought that these colors would work together.
The flower was made by covering a chip board flower with Designer Paper. If you haven't done this technique yet, give it a try it is fun & easy!
Supplies Used: Stamps~ Be Happy, Simple Sayings. Paper~ Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Au Chocolat DP. Ink~ Chocolate Chip, More Mustard. Accessories~ Flower Chip Board, Mustard Brads, Twill Tape, Circle Punch, Glue Stick, Sanding Block.

Challenge #125. This card is using one of my favorite stamp sets, 'Shore Thing' I love those little birds in this set. I have used them in many designs! I'm hoping this set will be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog in July!
Supplies Used: Stamps~ Shore Thing.
Paper~ Kraft CS, Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Spring Showers DP.
Ink~ Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Bashful Blue, VersaMark.
Accessories~ Vintage Brads, Sponge Daubers.
This card's design panel is a little larger than it was suppose to be for the challenge, but I like the way it turned out and wanted to share it with you anyway. The set I used for this card is on the retired list, it is called 'Going Out in Style'. I think this set is such a fun design, you can used it so many ways. I am not a hat gal myself, I look goofy in hats, but I like to stamp using them!
