4 in one Blogger's Challenge

Today's blogger's challenge was a color combo.  Taken with Teal, Real Red and Crushed Curry.  I decided to pull out some Christmas DP and use it for non-Christmas.  I think these are fun colors, don't you.  I combined this challenge with a few others

The first is the sketch challenge number 16 on Stampin Connection, second the CAS challenge on Stampin Connection which is to use a summer theme, and last but not least the Latenightstamper's Challenge to use new stamps from the current mini catalog.


Stamps: All a Flutter, Trendy Trees for sentiment
Paper: Crushed Curry, Real Red, Whisper White, Holiday Lounge DP
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, embossing folder, word window punch

Hope you are off to a fabulous start to the weekend!  Looking forward to some sun here, getting a little tired of clouds and rain!
