You've Got This

Sorry for the late Sunday Stamps post! My youngest is a senior in high school and this week has been crazy with activities! Saturday was his last day at a conference in Anchorage for BPA (Business Professionals of America) and we didn't get out of the city until well after 2pm, and we live an hour away. He had to be ready for prom at 4....needless to say it was a tight schedule but he made it and had a great night at prom. I however came home  (we went out to dinner with friends after we dropped him off with his friends) and promptly fell asleep LOL

Today at Sunday Stamps we have a color challenge to work with and anyone who has been to my blog before knows that if a color challenge involves purple I have a problem coming up with something, as I don't like the color. I'm not even going to lie, it was the same with this card and I came up with it at the last minute. I finally got my jump start using the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch. I saw it, the idea for my card popped into my head and I knew how to incorporate the purple into my card.

I love this stamp from Stampin Up. It's just so simple and has so many possibilities. I stamped the background in Pistachio Pudding and then stamped the flower image in Memento Black. On a piece of Neenah Solar White I stamped the flower portion of the stamp, colored it in with copics and then I fussy cut it out and popped the piece up with dimensionals over the flower image on the card panel. I then stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow. It ended up being a very quick card that came together in about 30 mins, after weeks of agonizing over the purple in the challenge LOL

Make sure you head over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us!

I used 2 of the green and 2 of the purples from the graphic, plus white as my neutral
