Kristina Werner's Color Challenge 50

Good Morning all! This weekend has been such a fun one so far - yesterday was the WooHoo Demonstrator stamping event which was soo much fun and so inspirational. I'll be sharing more on that in a later post either today or tomorrow. For now, I wanted to share the card I made for Kristina Werner's Color Challenge - it's her 50th already! While I've only been participating in the last handful, I do enjoy going to her site to get color combo ideas and fun and fresh designs. Here's the card I made. The colors for this week's challenge match up so nicely with Stampin'Up!'s Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper, that I had to break open my new pack and try to come up with a design! The paper designs in the pack remind me so much of Hawaii (not so much the flamingos, which are more a Miami thing, I think) so I went with a "tropical island" feel. Notice the fun little swirlies? That's from the Sizzix Swirls Scribbles sizzlit, which is just so cute. I used the die cut image and also used the negative to stencil in a few swirls here and there.
Here's the recipe:
*Pink Flamingo DSP, Whisper White, and Chocolate Chip cardstock
*Cute and Curly stamp set
*Chocolate Chip and Real Red Classic Stampin'Up! Ink pads
*Sizzix Swirls Scribbles die cut
*Real Red grosgrain ribbon, Summer Sun corduroy button, Curly label punch, Boho Blossoms punch, scallop edge border punch, linen thread, brads, sponge dauber
So whaddaythink? Hope you like it. Have a fab Sunday! Thanks for stopping by :)
