Double Blog Challenge

A miracle has happened!  I was able to stamp this weekend! WOO HOO!!!

I was inspired by to challenge blogs: 2 Sketches 4 You and Color Throwdown. (click on the hyper links to seek the sketch and the challenge colors)

2s4u-ctd45-Bloom Happiness

Stamps: Wildflower Set; Abstract Floral Background; Wildflower Background; all from Rubbernecker Stamp Company;

Paper: Prism Super Smooth White; Green Galore, Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip (SU!);

Ink: Dark Brown Fluid Chalk Ink; Gable Green Classic SU!; Frayed Burlap-Tim Holtz Distress Ink;

Accessories: jewels-Michaels, May Arts Ribbon; Foam tape; Prismacolor Pencils; Martha Stewart border punch;

These colors did frighten me at first, but they grew on me as I used them. Of course I didn’t have any dp that fit—but that is the beauty of background stamps!! 

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!  We are heading out to a picnic tomorrow with some other families tomorrow—so I am glad I got my stamping in while I could!

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: Please learn from my own mistake.  I did not read the fine print on the 2 Sketches 4 You  site and I didn’t follow the contest rules.  While this does not diminish the joy in creating the card, it is frustrating to disqualify myself from the contest. 

Live and learn.
