Breezy Vanilla Kisses

That was the name of today's colour challenge on SCS - if that title doesn't inspire you, then I don't know what will! :o) The colours, in case you hadn't guessed, were Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Kiwi Kiss - which happen to be my favourite colour palette these days! (If you don't believe me, scroll down and look at the cards I've been making this past few weeks LOL) I didn't do a fantastic job of my stamping on this card (one of the leaves is not fully stamped at the top, and I had to fill in the top portion of the sentiment with my black journalling pen LOL) but oh well.

The rock 'n roll inking technique was CASE'd from a fellow SU! demo named Suzy - I've used this technique a bajillion times before, but I never would have thought to do it with these two colours together! I love it!


And I recently saw a medallion element that used this silver hodgepodge hardware piece as its base and thought it was a fantastic idea! So I CASE'd that as well (and I apologize, I can't recall where I saw it, nor did I bookmark it!!) Here it is close up:

The felt flower is one of the new Flower Fusion Too pieces, in Baja Breeze. And the brad is one of the new SU! flower brads. The card will be going out as a thank you to my aunt, who subscribes all three of my kids to fantastic French kids' magazines (their renewals just recently came in).

OK, I think that's it for tonight. I still have some paperwork to do (yuck), so I should skedaddle.

Happy Stampin'!
