LSC #21

Hi All! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year's. Mine was nice and relaxing. I am not one to "ring in the new year", so we had fun at home with a couple of friends, dinner, card games, and some Jeff Dunham...what could be better?

Anyway, I have had the opportunity to follow some amazing Blogs for a few months now, the Loonie Stampers Challenge girls, and their stuff is sooooo fun and inspiring. So I have decided to try to do their weekly color/sketch challenges. I hear they love it when others join in, so why not? What a fun New Year's resolution...besides it forces me to get in my craft room!

This weeks challenge was to use the colors Pure Poppy, Spring Moss, Spring Rain, and Sweet Blush. I used the SU version of each, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Pink Pirouette. These colors were quite fun! Hope you enjoy my creation!

I used SU sets, Polka-dot Poisies and Petal Pushers. I also used SU DSP Hawaii Papaya. I embellished with some ribbon, flower tab, and little silver studs. The blue label says "live it up" (sorry about the glare). After I was all done though, looking back I wish I would have CB'd the baja color w/swiss dots, oh well maybe next time!

Thanks ladies, this was fun!

It's perfect!! I love it! And OMG...Polka Dot Posies. I love that set so much. But I only found it after it was discontinued so I bought it off eBay! I will have to try to use it soon again! Thank you for playing and I am glad you had fun with it.
