KW - CI #55 - Can't resist a color challenge....I must be addicted!


So I had my open house tonight! Went pretty good, considering I had to reschedule. Kerry had taken the boys over to Kath & Jared's. So when things wrapped up around 10pm, Kerry called and he said I should come over with Kath so we all could play Rock Band! Enough Said. By the time we got home and got the kiddos in bed, I came down to finish some stuff up, and bopped on over to Kristina's site, and low and behold, there was Color Inspiration #55. I can't resist, even at 1 in the morning! I really have a problem! LOL!

I decided that since I already had a bunch of stuff still out on my tables from the open house, I would just use the stamp sets I had out! Had to pull the required colors out, but I would have to say, the card came together on it's own!

And since rust was one of the colors.....I couldn't resist using one of SU's new In Colors, Dusty Durango....for some reason I want to keep calling it Dirty Durango, but oh well!!!

I used Urban Oasis DSP for the Grey in the background. Organic Outlines makes up the mustard and rust image, and the flowers are from Eastern Blooms, and Organic Outlines! The ribbon is also Dusty Durango...I am SO in love with this new polka dotted ribbon, perhaps since I have been everything circles and dots lately! And of course, you know me, I just couldn't resist adding a little Bling in the center of a few of those yummy flowers! The sentiment, which I adore, is from The Cat's Pajamas.....I can't believe I've hit that point in my life where this actually is a reality! LOL! But life couldn't be better, even if I am wee bit over 29!
