Kristina's Color Inspiration #34


Happy Wednesday! I should have gone to bed at 10:30, but I decided to really quickly make a card for Kristina's Color Inspiration #34: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Bordering Blue, Certainly Celery, and Sage Shadow. When I first started stamping, the Soft Subtles were my absolute favorite, especially Perfect Plum and Pale Plum, so I feel like I know these colors well! lol!

Since I was short on time, I took the challenge very *literally* and used my old snowman punch to make little snowmen going across in a row, just like her sample picture. Not too inventive, but I'll mail it off to a family member who will love it hopefully! I finally got the Polka Dot background stamp last week, and I'm loving it! The "merry" is from a retired set called "Cute Converse"...I saved it because I loved its little word sentiments. The star punch is also retired, but I like the "folk" look of it.

Okay, gotta get to bed. A cold came to visit me Monday night and it's kicking my behind, sigh...the joys of working with lots of little children! lol! Hope you're having a great week! Hugs and happy stamping!

Recipe
Stamps: Polka Dot Background, Cute Converse (retired).
Cardstock: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Bordering Blue, Certainly Celery, Sage Shadow.
Ink: Staz-On Black; Certainly Celery Classic.
Accessories: 5/8" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, 1/8" Circle Punch, Snowman & Star Punch retired, Marta Stewart Plum Linen Thread.

Polka Dot BG was my first background stamp, so I have special feelings for it.
I love how you rocked the colors. I loved her image so much, but don't have time to play. Your card is fantastic!
