Color Combo Challenge

Happy Sunday Everyone,
Today I have a Design Team Card for you. It is for the Color Combo challenge at the Stamping Vacation Challenge blog. The prize is a monthly drawing for a $25 certificate for the store of your choice.!!! Sounds super doesn't it??!! The colors for this month are:

Dark Blue and Light Yellow

This is a great combination. I love blue and yellow together and used them to color a fabulous stamp from DeNami. Here is my Color Combo card.

The CS is Barely Banana and Pacific Point from Stampin' Up. The DP is also from Stampin' Up. I colored the image with Pacific Point and Crushed Curry Inks using a wet brush. I also used a Crushed Curry and a green marker to color in the flowers on the shoes. Here is a detail photo.

The ruffle: You know how sometimes see pretty ribbon and you buy it? And then you get it home and realize it is ribbon with adhesive on it? Well, that is what I did. I found a new use for this adhesive ribbon. Pleat it!! Just add pleats as you go sticking it down. It works great. Here is a close up of the pleated ribbon. How fun is that??!!

And a few fun challenges for Fashion Thinking of You:

SSDS Challenge: Dots and Stripes

Catch the Bug: Anything goes

Little Claires Designs: (a new challenge site): Anything goes

Sew Many Challenges: Anything goes

Paper Play: Stamp it out

Well, I hope you are enjoying the snow. We have tons of it here. Remember when you were a kid and snow was an event? We made snowmen and snow forts, had snowball fights. I even remember lobbing a few snowballs at cars. Boy, that made people mad! We would run and hide. LOL Oh, the good old days. I wish you a happy day filled with all the things you love.
