Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #18



I LOVE this week's colors! I totally thought that the Summer Sun/Green Galore confusion could be easily solved with the brand new 2008-2009 In Color KIWI KISS (I'm sure Kristina didn't put it in there as it isn't availabe for customer order until MONDAY - let me know if you need me to order you some of this amazing color!)



Anyway I thought I'd do double duty by making the card for my new friend Amanda's birthday which is tomorrow. My family is coming into town tomorrow so we're celebrating tonight! (HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMANDA!!! Come to think of it I don't think she knows anything about this blog so I'll have to tell her after I give her the card tonight!)

Sorry Kristina for the terrible picture - one of these days I'm going to invest in a better camera. She does her videos with the Flip Ultra and I saw a PINK one the other day - now do I have enough viewers to warrant a video camera? NO - but the idea of a pink one was almost enough to send me over the edge - plus it is so cute and compact!

Supplies:
STAMPS: All Holidays, Jumbo Outline Alpha, & Dotted Lines Jumbo Wheel
CARDSTOCK: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red
INK: VersaMark, Classic Basic Black
ACCESSORIES: Scallop Edge Punch (order that MONDAY too!!! LOVE IT!!!), Flower Fusion, Black Brad, Pumpkin Pie Narrow Grosgrain, Paper Piercer, VersaMarker, Old Stamp Discarded pieces (instead of Dimensionals - gives more height! Used Glossy Accents to adhere the rubbery portion to the card & just peeled off the other side), Glue Dots (to make the awesome bow - my new favorite kind after making one on the Make and Take gift bag at convention), Clear Embossing Powder

Everybody have a FANTASTIC day!!!

The way you did her name is great! I love this technique, I can never get it quite right though. You did a great job! I also like how you did the wheel on an angle.

Hi, Sarah! It was nice to meet you at the 80's night at convention last week. Love how you did the letters here.

Great Card! The flower fusion adds so much to the card. This is a great color combo, isn't it!
