Color Inspiration

On my way to bed last night, I remembered having seen Kristina Werner's color inspiration challenge this week. What the heck, I told myself, sleep is for sissies. Besides, my stamp desk had been neat for a couple of days. It was time to mess it up. Additionally, I love the color combination, Stampin' Up colors that, after a little research, I discovered were comparable to CTMH's Indian Corn Blue, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup, and Cranberry.

Here's my offering. Is it simple? Ah, yes - my signature style. It's so simple in fact that there's nothing notable, with the exception that I created the scallops using Stampin' Up's Slit punch. The little gingham bow was an afterthought. The right side of the card looked like it "needed" something, and the bow was the best thing I could come up with at that hour.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Indian Corn Blue, and Buttercup cardstock; Cranberry, Indian Corn Blue, Buttercup, and Sweet Leaf ink pads; Papertrey Ink Floral Frenzy and Polka Dot Basics stamp sets; Cranberry Gingham ribbon; Stampin' Up Slit punch; Piercing tool; Stampin' Up Piercing Guide and Mat.

As always, I'm glad it's Friday. It's been kind of a crazy, busy week. Usually, my life's pretty calm, probably boring by some folks' standards. I like that way, and as soon as it's calm again, I'll be back . . . Hope your weekend is a good one!

Oooohhhh, I really, really like this color combo! I had to giggle at the comment that sleep is for sissies. I must be a sissy! I'd be afraid that I would hurt myself somehow if I stayed up too late. LOL

Great work, my friend!
