Blogger’s Challenge Week 58

This week’s challenge was to use Old Olive, So Saffron, Rose Red and Pumpkin Pie.  Bright!  Actually, I did like the result!  I think this set, Window Dressing, is SO cute!  I wanted to make some swaps cards with it, but ran out of time…

On this card, I did use some of the striped Old Olive paper from Summer Picnic…it is such a great textured stripe.  I also couldn’t believe I actually had this ribbon that matched the colors EXACTLY!

I stamped the window and pumpkin images with Basic Grey on Very Vanilla and then used my watercolor crayons to color and shadow the images.  I mounted it on So Saffron and used the ticket corner punch on the top corners.  Then I overlapped a piece of Pumpkin Pie and a piece of Rose Red behind the So Saffron piece.  To My and Friend from Fundamental Phrases were stamped with Basic Grey also.  I punched the Trio of flowers from So Saffron and placed an Old Olive mini brad in each center.  I love how this came out!  Even with coloring, the card came together pretty easy!  If I have time, I may cut some paper and take them with me on the plane to finish.  Of course, I’ll need to use only Stampin’ Up! current product, but I’m sure I can find something to replace the paper and ribbon I used.

I’m anxious to see what the other Blogger’s did with this week’s challenge! 

Have a great weekend.

Oh Connie, this is adorable…I’m love seeing all the new sets, and will be even more excited when I get my new catalog! Sorry to hear about your blog problems. I was one of the 30,000 people whose blog was shut down, but I guess lucky for me, it was only down about 30 hours…but they were long hours for me! Welcome home, and get some sleep!!!
