Stampin' Celebration #45


It's Thursday and there's another fantastic inspiration piece over at Stampin' Celebration!   I love neutral colors, so this was a really fun week for me. I also loved the bold and graphic look of the bottom photo. 


For my card, I used one of the Sale-A-Bration sets Sweet Summer.  Usually I wouldn't think to use this color palate with with this set, but I like the way it turned out.  I used the colors Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, and Basic Black.  I started by stamping the flowers in those colors on Naturals White card stock and then used my blender pens to color in the flowers. 

The sentiment is from the set Trendy Trees.  I tied some Hemp Twine around the Basic Black layer and popped it up on dimensionals.   


For the layout, I used the Clean & Simple sketch challenge over at The Paper Players.  I just happened to stumble across their blog, and I'm sure I'll be back again.  :-)

Just a reminder that there is only ONE week left of Sale-A-Bration!  If you haven't taken advantage of this great opportunity yet, make sure you do quickly! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see what the other members of the Design Team have been up to.  And you can see who our Party Guest designer is this week.
