Good Morning & Happy Friday Stamping Friends!
I'm so sorry for my absence this past week.....my husband planned a getaway for my birthday & I couldn't say no could I? I didn't have time to do anything but leave & I've informed him that although I truly appreciated and needed this escape.....some advance notice would be NICE LOL!!!!!
Well, it's time for another Color Me Beautiful Challenge & this week's colors are AMAZING!!!! I managed to use all the colors again & I accomplished this by sponging my background piece. While I was at Convention this past summer; I received a swap that had a line of butterflies on it that used all the new In Colors & I thought that was a pretty creative way to do that so I took her idea and stepped it up a bit. My background is sponged while hers was white; I textured my butterflies while hers was just punched out & I spread mine out vs. hers was in a straight line. I also added ribbon & stamped my sentiment on a die cut while her swap was very clean and simple. All in all; I'm quite pleased with it & I hope I've inspired you to play along with us! All you have to do is create a card, scrapbook page, 3D item or whatever your heart desires using the Stampin' Up! colors listed above & link it to the Color Me Beautiful challenge blog by Thursday, October 4th @ 5pm. I can't wait to see your wonderful pieces of art!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by & please check out the rest of the design team's work! I'm sure you'll be inspired by everyone's awesome creations!!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
