Kristina's Color Inspiration #26

Did I miss a day? Ooops! Did anybody notice? I was home all day yesterday sewing and posting totally slipped my mind! Well, then I am overdue for another Kristina's Color Inspiration! I love this color combination, so bright and summer-like. Far from the crazy weather we are having here! Sunny and 55° one yesterday to expecting freezing rain today! It's gloomy out so this card is to contrast that. This is my first acetate card. I wish I could say it went really smoothly. Not the acetates fault, all mine! First, I dropped an inked stamp on my acetate! I hate to waste it, so I cut the it in half. Now I really only have a card front. So, the striped Bashful Blue is my card back and I sew them together. Problem solved....I guess. Not too much more to tell on this one, the flowers are from Eastern Blooms. The swirls from Priceless and the sentiment from All Year Cheer II. Not my best work, for sure but hey I'm on a mission!

PS-Kristina has posted this weeks challenge, so hopefully my next card will be Color Inspiration #43!

  1. Great work Shelley!! I love it, as the colors work well and I like the stitching that holds the acetate. Did you use White Stazon? Your choice of stamp sets work well together... FUN!! :)
    We did get 6” of snow Thursday and now the bitter cold temps today and tomorrow. The roads are icy, and the sun was out today. I’m happy you stamped a “SPRINGY” card to get my mind thinking about flowers!!
