Blogger's Challenge #73 - Yummy Color Combo!

Don't you just LOVE these colors together? Wow, I have to admit, I finally sat down last night about 9 pm to make this card and if it weren't for this color combination to get me excited, I don't know that I'd have gotten it done. It has been one heck of a week around here!

Anyway, to add to my inspiration of Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip with Whisper White, I pulled out this AWESOME stamp set that we received as a gift at Founder's Circle. It's called Simple Friendship and will be available for purchase in the upcoming Stampin' Up! January 09 Idea Book. It is so very easy to work with and get fabulous results, I know you are going to love it - so be sure to put it on your wish lists NOW!

To create my card, I started with a base of Baja Breeze Cardstock and layered it with Chocolate Chip. The main panel is stamped with this beautiful Butterfly image in Baja Breeze ink and then outlined with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

For my focal point, I stamped the Friend medallion in Basic Brown (Chocolate Chip color, but waterproof!) and then colored in the flowers with my Blender Pens and Baja Breeze Ink Refill. This was also edged with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter - LOVE that BLING!

I layered it onto a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock cut with my handy-dandy Coluzzle! Yes, I know you don't like the Coluzzle, but I know you are warming to it - just ask Andrea and Paula! (Hi guys!)

This was then layered with dimensionals over two luscious ribbons - Chocolate Chip Wide Double Stitched Grosgrain and Baja Breeze Striped Grosgrain. I used my Ribbon Scissors (really called the Paper and Craft Scissors in the catalog, but the cut through ribbon like Buttah!) to snip the ends into the banner tails.

I really love how this one turned out and it took me less than half an hour to create it - don't you just love when a plan comes together - even when you don't have one! LOL! Well, I hope you like it too - I showed it to my daughter and hubby last night because I needed some instant approval (my tank was EMPTY), but they were too busy playing Wii to notice the awesome coolness of this card. Maybe if I turned myself into a Mii character they would notice........hmmm, that's a thought!
