It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge project. This week the challenge is a color challenge. I had cardstock swatches of the colors on my desk for like a week trying to figure this one out.
Can you guess the color combination, I sure hope so! It is Basic Gray, Bumblebee, and Pumpkin Pie. When it was all done I realized these colors do look good together but at first the Basic Gray really threw me off.
I looked through my stamp sets many times trying to figure out what to make. I finally decided on the Special Someone stamp set. I just love this little raccoon and knew he would look good in Basic Gray. I stamped him in Basic Gray for the outline and stamped off once to stamp the fur. I decided to make this a birthday card so I added the balloons in the challenge colors. The balloon strings and balloons were die cut using the Special Day dies.
The sentiment is from the Zoo Globe stamp set. There is something about this font I really like and it was the right size for the little tag. from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Little Bumblebee stars were added from the All the Trimmings Embellishments. I thought the stars added a little more visual interest. The plaid DSP is from the Plaid Tidings DSP pack and is on sale until the end of the month for 15% off.
Thank you for for stopping by and I have a list below of all the products I used.
