Hello! So I dropped the ball on participating in more challenges last week. My girls and I traveled with my parents to a small town in Wyoming for a family reunion last weekend
. I got busy with laundry and packing and - much to my dismay - finding out there was a family of mice living in the basement. ::shudder:: Luckily for me, my hubby dealt with the latter while we were gone. So anyway, I'm back and ready to post again!
Today I am participating in this week's Color Throwdown challenge. Here is the color swatch:
I love these fun, vibrant colors. They are similar to the challenge I participated in here. Here is the card I made:
The papers from Fancy Pants' Off to School collection worked so well with these colors, so I decided to make a card for my biggie's teacher. The bottom sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and stamped the chalk with the Smoky Slate color. I stamped and colored the apple with the Bermuda Bay and Real Red colors. Unfortunately, when I brushed on the clear Wink of Stella, the red lightened up a lot. I'm not sure why my Wink of Stella pen doesn't like me anymore. It doesn't seem to work the way it used too. :( Anyway, I used some sequins to bring out the colors even more and to finish it all off.
I am linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is Make It Sparkle. Here is a close up of the hard-to-see glitter on the apple:
That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by! Until next time...
