It's Week #47 -- Bloggers' Challenge

Can you believe it?!! Before we know it, it will be a whole year!! WOW...where did the time go?!!

Yes, it is Friday....and it's that time again! This week's Challenge took us to Page 21 of the Occasions Mini. Easy enough!! AND I had a chance to ink up my new Wonderful You set that I purchased at the end of the April Wheel special sale. So, what do you think?

I seem to be stuck on the Soft Sky/Blue Bayou color combo....isn't it pretty?!! I'm so going to miss them when they retire! BUT, I needed 2 more colors in this combo to "match" the challenge card. Have you checked out this site, yet? It's a wonderful aid for those of us who are color challenged....or when you are at a loss for colors. That's where I came up with this combination...but when I added in the little strip of Whisper White CS on the left side, it was too stark, so I stamped it with the Twill Background stamp in Soft Sky.

Stamps: Wonderful You, Twill Bkgrd, Stems & Silhouettes Jumbo Wheel
CS: Whisper White, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate
Inks: White Craft, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky
Misc.: Mini Clip (left over from the Winter Mini), White Tafeta Ribbon, Rectangle Punch
NOTE: All stamps and accessories are from Stampin'Up!

Thanks for stopping by! Now I'm off to visit the other bloggers who participated....why not join me?

This is very pretty, and you can't go wrong with Soft Sky and Bayou Blue. I like the red added to it, really makes it pop! Love how you used the flowers on your behind part (the card base). Great job!
