kwerner Color Inspiration Challenge #8

Good morning, almost afternoon! The Pistons lost last night, so that was a bummer. It's raining today, but I don't really mind. It just means I can stamp without feeling guilty about not being outside! The baby is just waking up from his nap, so I will have to do this quickly.

I love the colors from Kristina's Inspiration Challenge at kwernerdesignblog. They are most of the colors from the Jersey Shore Designer Paper: Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. I was in a near panic (not really) when she didn't put her challenge up at the usual time. I felt a bit like a stalker, checking her sight every hour or so. I was so glad to see it last night before bed, but I wasn't able to stamp it until this morning.

Here's my card:

I am loving the Jersey Shore paper, and hadn't used this swatch yet. I noticed that my new Lizzie Anne Flower might match perfectly, and it did! I was so happy! Please ignore and/or forgive the white speck under the flower . . . I'm so rusty at embossing that I forgot to use my embossing buddy. I am going to remake the card later today if I have time, and do a better job.

Okay, I think I must go get the baby! The sentiment on this card says "happy today, happy tomorrow, happy everything" and that is what I wish for you all today!

I loved this color combo so much, I had to do some more! I did Jen Tapler's SOA#11: Nifty Notepad for her Stampin' Out Alzheimer's event. Come on, guys, you still have time to do this! Go check it out!

I love how cute they look as a set! I think I will send them to my aunt in Florida, to brighten her days as she's going through chemo...
