HSS Color Challenge #57

Hello there blog friends!  Happy March!  Boy is this year flying, or what?  Well, in any case, it's time for this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge and we've got a fun color combo for you to try out.  What do you think of the card snippet above?  I have to say I had fun putting together my card for this week's color challenge using these pretty In Color colors.  Here's a look at the details:
Do you want to see what my full card looks like?  Here it is:
Now how fun are those colors?!  I wouldn't have typically thought of putting them together, but I do like the outcome.  I got to play with the In Color 6x6 DSP papers that are from the Hostess Level 1 set.  I just opened the pack and LOVE all the pretty prints!  For good measure, I even created a second card in a slight variation:
The cool thing is, these cards were really easy to put together, yet the DSP instantly dresses them up a bit.  And, just so you can see them both side by side, here's one last picture:
What do you think?  It was my first time to use the For You stamp from the Punch Bunch set (Sale-a-bration), and I really love the sweet little poppy flowers on it.  I think the overall color scheme reminds me of summertime.  That Poppy Parade color just makes me smile!  Here's the recipe for you:
{In Color Prints For You}
*Stamp Set: Punch Bunch
*Cardstock: Shimmery White, In Color 6x6 DSP, Whisper White
*Inks: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride
*Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2" Poppy Parade Poly ribbon, dimensionals
 Hope you like it!  Now try out this cute color combo and play along with us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  Hop over to the site for some inspiration from our creative DT, and then add your own take on the challenge.  Have fun! :)
