You Make Me Smile- RB Challenge #1

Hi there!

Tonight I'm sharing a card for a Rose Blossom Challenge.  Our creative leader, Brenda Rose, challenged the ctmh Rose Blossom team to a color combo challenge.  The challenge was to make a project using 4 colors (and these 4 colors only): honey, gypsy, white daisy and pear.  These colors had me thinking spring right away!  While these colors are lovely together, I felt very challenged.  Maybe it's because I didn't use any paper other than cardstock?

Here is my card:

I started off by dry embossing the gypsy card stock and sanding it to give it a distressed look.  I then cut the flowers out using the Art Philosophy circut cartridge and used one of my favorite stampsets, Hooray Boutique .  The sentiment says, "You Make me Smile."  And the thought of spring certainly makes me smile :)  The card was finished off with an opaque pearl flourish and a purple sparkle- both of which are ctmh .  I sure had fun making this card and feeling challenged.

I thought I'd share a couple of cute pictures from our day today too :)  We watch a lot of cake boss on netflix and my boy asked if we could bake a cake after church and wear his pirate shirt.  Of course we were all over that! 

The best part of baking!

The finished cake- he was so proud :)

Chloe was a ham while eating the cake :)

Have a great week and thank you for stopping by!  :) Kim
