Love Blooms in One Color

Happy Friday everyone! It's the weekend again! Even though it's chilly and rainy here, I'm happy because I don't have to go to work for 2 days! And I get more leisure time in my stamping room instead of fitting it in before and after supper and late into the night! Well, ok, so I'll still be up late stamping but I can sleep in a little bit!

So - todays card was created for two challenges - the Limited Supplies Challenge on Split Coast and Beate's weekend Sketch challenge.

For the limited supplies challenge we could only use white and one other color. I chose to use white and Soft Sky for my colors. I love these two colors together - they are so soft and soothing don't you think?? I used Stampin Up DP and Papertrey stamps from the Green Thumb and Favor It Wedding sets. I used my nestabilities to cut the circles which are up on dimensionals. It was hard not to add another color - especially black ink for the sentiment! My card is a 4.5 x 4.5 square card.
There were a lot of things going on today - a lot of my blogging and SCS friends got chosen for design teams! Linsey will be a guest designer for Gina K Designs and Cindy (Mothermark on SCS) and Charlene (Lilluvsstampin on SCS) are both on the design team for the new H&M stamp company. I'm so happy for them all! What a thrill to be chosen and they are so deserving - they are all terrific creative stampers.
