I am so excited to have some extra time to join some challenges! I decided to attempt a card for the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge as well as the Paper Pal Arts Color challenge. Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue are two colors that are being retired with the new Color Refresh that Stampin' Up! will be introducing in the new 2013-2014 catalog. I am so excited they are bringing back several of my favorites!
Here is my card...
I have not used Circle Circus in a while and it is one of my favorite stamp sets ever! I love making my own paper that fits any color scheme that I want to use. I also used the whale from the retired Fox and Friends stamp set. I love to add the little details here and there like the Paper Piercing, Pearls, and of course a little ribbon.
Thanks for stopping and I hope you have a great day!!
