Good Things for Sunday Stamps

Happy Sunday from snow covered southcentral Alaska! For the 3rd weekend in a row we've gotten a large dumping of snow, with yesterdays storm bringing us 10" of beautiful new snow. Needless to say I am loving it, this is the Alaska I know and love!

Sunday also means a new challenge at Sunday Stamps and this week we have a color challenge. These colors are so pretty together, I really loved them the minute I saw them but I have to admit I was a bit stumped on what to do. Then Freshly Made Sketches posted this weeks sketch and I took off from there!

I really wanted to use flowers on my card so I grabbed the SU set You've Got This. This is such a pretty set and one of my all time favorites. I stamped the flowers and only kept the top petal portion in order to keep inline with the sketch. I used a copic marker to color the flower a Calypso Coral color. For the brown I used Soft Suede DSP and the card base is the lighter pink color, Blushing Bride. I popped the flowers up for extra dimension. I really love how this card came out!

So from the color challenge the 3 colors I chose to use were : the brown (far left), lighter pink (2nd from the right), the coral color (far right) and just a touch of black and white as my neutrals.

Make sure you head on over to Sunday Stamps to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us! There is also a little bit of time left at Freshly Made Sketches to play along with them if you want too!
