Kristina's Color Inspiration #38: Hi and Hello


Schwooo! I made it! I decided at 7:30 I would try and make a card for Kristina's Color Inspiration #38! I think I've mentioned before that nothing motivates me like a tight deadline...drives me crazy, of course, but it really gets me moving! lol!


**edited to add: Awww man, Nancy just commented and I had until Saturday night to make this challenge! Blasted, I could have put it off for two more nights! hee! hee!

I had that flower made out of scallop circles already. It was created...and rejected...for a project back in December. The bottom layer had been chocolate chip polka dot dsp, but I tore that one off and added a ruby red scallop circle. Lastly, added a pumpkin pie button for the center and voila, done! I don't think it will be fitting inside an envelope, though...

How is your week going? I'm sure glad tomorrow is Friday! We're just about finished with all of our testing and benchmarking this week and identifying the students I'll be working with the next few months. I'm ready to get back to it!

Off to watch Grey's...while I stamp! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Recipe
Stamps: Hi and Hello
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Sweet Always DSP.
Ink: Staz-On Brown.

Very cute. Love the colors. Very springy, which I need to see right now since I'm watching it snow.

Hi and Hello sounds like something from a movie, but now I'm thinking I'm confusing it with "H & G...Hi and Goodbye" from Sleepless in Seattle.

Juanita said...

Great card Angie. I love that flower, but it looks like a hand deliver type of card. You did a great job balancing the colors and the simple design is still very striking!

Ashley C. Newell said...
