Hey There!

Welcome back!  Tonight the card I'm sharing was made for two challenges, this week's color challenge at Dynamic Duos and the Deconstructed Sketch challenge.

The smaller stamp from So Very Grateful was the perfect size for the main focal image.  It was stamped in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White and colored with Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand.  It was then adhered to a piece of Blushing Bride that had been embossed with the Distress Dots embossing folder (love that!).

I finally made a card I thought would work well with one of the playful sentiments from Just Sayin'.  I love this font and the nice thing about this particular sentiment is that it can be used for anything...saying hi or thinking of you or even happy stamping a separate sentiment on the interior.  I decorated the interior of this card with the flower image stamped in Sahara Sand, but I'll wait until I use it to add the appropriate sentiment.

The Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon adds some additional texture and a bit more balance between the two colors.  I'm happy with how this card turned out and it was fairly quick to make despite the coloring of the floral image.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!  If you have a moment I'd love to hear from you.  I hope your week ahead is enjoyable!

Stef, this is beautiful! LOVE how you've coloured the main image, and I really like the flagged ribbon laid on top of a banner. Gorgeous use of the colour combo, my friend.
