I woke up with some nerves, so I thought stamping might help!
This is for the challenge today over on Splitcoast Stampers to make a clean & simple card!
I pulled out Upsy Daisy and some scrap Blueberry Maine designer paper and came up with this!
I think it came out pretty cute! It was hard for me to not use many layers!
Paper: Whisper White, Blueberry Maine DP
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Stamps: Upsy Daisy
Accessories: Bashful Blue Striped Ribbon, Old Olive Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Designer Label Punch
Well, I'm off to get myself together for today!! Wish us luck!!!!

Today's color challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was a great one! I really loved it! You were to use Pacific Point, Garden Green, & Baja Breeze. I love the boldness of the Pacific Point!
I found Katharina's sketch on the Daily Dare blog. It was a great sketch this week! I especially loved it because I could use my new circle nestabilities! That's always a plus!!!
I pulled out my Verve Visual Petals & Stems set. I stamped the flowers twice, cut them out, and mounted them on dimensionals. The butterfly is also stamped, cut out and popped on dimensionals. The background paper is by Basic Grey, I believe it's the Sherbert line.
Paper: Pacific Point, Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Basic Grey dp
Ink: Garden Green, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, Basic Black
Stamps: Petals & Stems (Verve Visual)
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Baja Breeze Ribbon, Pacific Point Ribbon, Dimensionals

I used the sketch from Our Creative Corner!
I came up with this color combo by looking in my paper box and figuring out which colors I NEVER use! I had a bunch of Garden Green hanging around, so I went with that... as you can see I didn't even use any of the plain cardstock because I ended up using some scrap Wild Wasabi which is almost identical to the Garden Green!
The color combo drove me to use the Strawberry from Tart & Tangy. I started with the sketch and the colors first, not the image... it actually worked out well!
This has brought me to a big announcement... beginning this THURSDAY I will be hosting a daring color challenge! Every other week there will be prizes and I will be looking for a design team to come up with samples!
Are you interested in becoming part of the design team? Email me 3 of your best works, it can be a card, scrapbook page or a 3d altered item. There is no compensation for being part of this design team, but your blog will be promoted! My email is email@example.com.
Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pixie Pink, & Wild Wasabi Dp
Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Lots of Thoughts
Ink: Garden Green, Pixie Pink & Certainly Celery markers
