Blogger's Challenge Week 29


This weeks challenge was to use the layout on page 37 of the new Stampin Up! catalog. (save the date card). My first thought was, yikes that is way too basic, lol. But now that the card is done I really like the clean look and the white is kind of refreshing. The colors are all inspired by this ribbon that I have had for way more than a year. I got it on clearance at JoAnn's I just loved the fun colors and knew I would be able to use it, of course I did not think it would take quite this long to do it! It was fun trying to created different textures for the different strips with out doing too much since it is such a simple image. The colors are Pumpkin Pie and Green Galore. The butterfly is from the new Time Well Spent hostess set and I colored it with markers and a aqua painter. The Life is Beautiful is from the Eastern Elegance Rub ons. Couldn't of been much easier. Thanks for checking in today, hope you have a terrific weekend! THANK GOD IT IS FRIDAY. ( almost, I am posting at 11pm on Thursday-close enough)
