Sunday Share 2

This card doubles for a couple of challenges I took on today.  I wanted to recreate a sketch put out by Gretchen Barron one of my favorite Stampin’ Up demos to follow and CASE – she issued a sketch and this is my take on it.  I also was using a color combo from Colour Q again.  nightly celery cupcakes

Stamps: Birthday Bliss
Colors: Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlets, Wide Oval punch, Whisper White 1/4” grosgrain ribbon, Polka Dot embossing folder

I found a fun blog a while ago and decided to try one of the challenges.  ColourQ issues creative color combinations each week.  This particular one was Melon Mambo, Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie.  It was tough but I love how my card turned out.  burgundy pumpkin mambo pink
