You Look Marbleous!
It Is Almost Over!

Hello Ladybug & Celebrate Sunflowers

It is Thursday and time for a new Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.  


Can you guess the colors that are in the challenge?  


Did you guess correctly?  Isn't this a fun color combination?  

It has been a little bit since I pulled out the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and coordinating Sunflower dies.  It is such a pretty stamp set and Bumblebee is a great color to use for that big sunflower.  I inked the sunflower in Bumblebee ink and stamped on Bumblebee CS.  I used a blending brush to add a little Poppy Parade around the center of the sunflower.


When I start to work on a color challenge I pull out cardstock, DSP, and embellishments in the challenge colors.  This is how I found the Night of Navy patterned paper in the Sweet Symmetry pack.    The Fan Baker's Twine in Poppy Parade and white was another one I pulled out.  In fact, I think this color combination was inspired but the colors in Hey Sports Fan DSP.  When it came to embellishments I couldn't find very much.  I thought about coloring some rhinestones or pearls or just adding some little dots and then I remembered the tiny flowers in the Peach dies.   Aren't they so cute?  I also added some tiny pearls because she is a fancy ladybug.  


Inside I added a big leaf stamped using the Hello Ladybug stamp set in Bumblebee.  I stamped the ladybug in Night of Navy and Poppy Parade and fussy cut her out.  Want to know the story behind this?  I somehow got a splotch of ink inside of the card so I needed to cover it up and like I always say, never take apart my cards cause you will certainly find some kind of mistake I had to cover up.  


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this color challenge,
