Check it out! Oh yeah, I can handle it!
In fact, I *love* these colors and think they look
bright and HAPPY together! :D
It's such a beautiful autumn day here in Nebraska! The sun is shining and I decided to take the photo of my card out on the deck railing. The colors are brighter and more accurate in direct light, although I noticed now that I'm posting it that there is some shadow by the ribbon and button. Oh well.
This has been a rather stressful week at work so I haven't felt very creative in the evenings, thus my lack of posts this week. I do much better when I can get up and spend the mornings in my craft room. And thankfully, that is exactly what I'm doing today! :D
And even better yet . . . I received some NEW Stampin' Up! stamps yesterday and couldn't wait to ink them up! This card was created with the beautiful new Medallion background stamp (115223) especially for the COLOR THROWDOWN challenge # 60 to use bermuda bay, green galore and barely banana.
First I inked the Medallion stamp up with bermuda bay and stamped the main card front. Then I did the same with the green galore and barely banana, but I cut out those pieces to layer on top. The sentiment is from the Happy Everything set (115235) and since I needed an anniversary card, I chose "Happy Together" as the verse. This set is perfect for so many occasions with 8 stamps. . . Happy Everything, For You, Days, Birthday, Holidays, Life, Together!
I finished off my card off with a little zig zag stitching and a matching button sewn onto a small piece of bermuda bay polka dot ribbon.
Now I'm off to play with a few of my other new stamp sets and make some final plans for my Stampin' Up! Open House on October 3rd!! I think I'll go with a Holiday theme....Halloween, Autumn/Thanksgiving, and Christmas too! There are just so many fabulous stamps in the new Holiday Mini catalog that I want to use them ALL! If you don't have the mini yet, please let me know and I can mail you one...or there is a link to view it online in my sidebar too!
Have a FUN and relaxing weekend, my friends!
