Creative Sketches Challenge CS32

This week challenge is a color challenge from a quilt pattern.  With all the problems with blogger I could not get it up in a timely matter.

Here is my card that I submitted and I hope you enjoy it.
I cas my own card on this one. This quick and easy card is just picking the colors needed, Wild Wasabi, Peach Parfait, Marina Mist and Rich Razzleberry. I add a couple more using Very vanilla and Crumb Cake for balance. I ran each piece thru my Big Shot using different embossing folders. Wrapped around Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon. I left the sentiment off this time, but if I was going to do one I think celebrate would look nice.

Besides being an amazing stamper she is a VC rocker too. How great is that!! I first found her blog during a blog hop for VC Rocks last year and keep coming back for inspration.

Another great thing about this award is that I get to pass it on. I have found six ladies who are also amazing stampers and crafters who deserve this award.  Please be sure to check out their blogs so you can see their amazing artwork.
