Howdy! Happy Sunday to you, although my post is much later then usual today. My husband and I hosted a "Texas-sized" party last night and our weekend has just been crazy, to say the least. I learned a few things this weekend, though: never go to Costco on a Saturday afternoon expecting to get "in and out" quickly, my house is completely NOT child-proof and we truly have some fantastic friends. :)
Back to the post at hand...It's time for a new weekly challenge over at The Paper Players! Ann is our hostess this week and she has picked a super-fantastic color combo to try! How can you go wrong with Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi and Daffodil Delight? These are some HAPPY colors, for sure. We would love to see your creations...if you don't have these exact colors, use something similar. Just have some fun!I used three new items from the upcoming 2011-2012 SU! Catalog for this one: the Pennant Parade stamp set, the coordinating Petite Pennants Builder punch and Just Add Cake DSP. This was at the request of one of our guests last night, who was infatuated with my craft room. She is 5 years old and thought that the punch was the coolest thing EVER. She suggested I make a card with it soon, so here it is! :)
I went with three main elements on this card: polka dots, dimension and punches. I also threw in some bling, for fun. Why not? All the supplies used are listed at the end of this post.
Here is the decorated inside of the card:
Thanks for stopping by today! Please hop on over to The Paper Players blog to take a peek at the awesome inspiration from the rest of the Design Team. We hope you will join us this week and try out this fun color combo, too. :)
Have a great day!
