Kristina's Color Inspiration #26



Happy Thursday! I was so busy working Wednesday night on making page kits for my scrapping retreat this weekend (Can you believe it? See I took your great advice!) that I wasn't going to stamp, but I caved in at 10:00 and decided I'd do a card really *quickly* for Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #26. It didn't turn out that quick, unfortunately! But this is what I came up with. I'm probably using that 1 3/4" circle punch too much, huh? I just love it, though!

I love the colors in this week's challenge, you know Bashful Blue is my favorite. I had a slight panic if I could find where I stored my Wild Wasabi ink and cardstock, but I found it! Schwooo! I already had the Top Note Bigz die piece of So Saffron polka dot paper (it's adhered to chipboard, that's why it looks kind of thick) from Parisian Summer, so I decided to make it work. The card size is 4 1/4" square. The "Merry Christmas" sentiment is from the Season of Joy stamp set.

Okay, gotta dash. Still so much to do before the retreat, this teaching job is really getting in the way! hee! hee! Of course, it paid for the retreat, so I guess I better go! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Rose Red, Whisper White, Parisian Summer DSP.

What a great Christmas card! Love that chipboard with the polka dots and the sweet button. You totally had me laughing about how your job is getting in the way- because that is what I was thinking this morning when I was getting ready to go prepare my lecture for this afternoon....
