Best Wishes




Here is my card for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #44! I love the colors this week!!! One of my favorite combos!!! The colors are chocolate chip, close to cocoa, pink pirouette, and whisper white.

Oh and check out my sil's card for this challenge too!

This time I used the Bella Toile background stamp, the Cute & Curly set and the Short & Sweet set. I used whisper white craft ink, chocolate chip classic ink, and close to cocoa classic ink. For card stock, I used all of the colors from the challenge. I stamped the Bella Toile in whisper white craft ink and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I stamped the saying by first stamping the label on to whisper white and pink pirouette paper with close to cocoa. I stamped the saying in the middle of the pink one with chocolate chip. I cut that out. I also cut out the white label so that I was able to layer it onto my close to cocoa card stock (that was punched out with the cute & curly label punch). Anyways....then I added the close to cocoa layer that I used my scallop edge punch and the 1/16 circle punch. I added a strip if whisper white card stock and then the 5/8 chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon. I added the whisper white strip to the top that I punched with my paper piercing tool and mat pack. and for the final touch I added 3 buttons to the left corner!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
