WHOOHOOO - STAMP SOMETHING FRIDAY!

Happy Friday all! It's time for the Stamp Something Challenge which is being hosted by the very talented DT member Becky this week! Becky challenged us to a color challenge using blue, green, and pink - love those colors! We could make anything we want, and use whatever shades we wanted, but it had to be those three colors. I thought this was a fabulous challenge and decided to use my Pretty Amazing stamp set for this one since I had just ordered it right before Convention and love it!! I think the stamps are just gorgeous in this set! I also used my Holiday Happenings Designer Series paper - it is brand new and part of a Hostess Level Three bundle in the new catty! Isn't it purty????!!! Love it! This is a fabulous challenge ladies, so get on over to the Stamp Something site and check out what eye candy the other DT members have left! And, give it a whirl yourself and upload the link to the site so we can all see the wonderful creations you come up with! But for now, I will leave you with the recipe for this card because I have a workshop to get ready for! I just love it! And, I will be giving them the new catties - whoohoo!!! Can't wait to see the excitement! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, see you tomorrow for Scrapbook Saturday! Smooches!

Very pretty! And look at you going all crazy with 2 buttons and silver hodgepodge hardware!! You go, girl!

Annapurna said...

Lovely card! That hardware is to die for.

I like the names SU comes up with for their stamp sets. I was looking to see if this was part of stem silhouettes and noticed it was "pretty amazing stamps".

I was looking through a SU catalog once and said, "these letters are lovely" and guess what the name of that alphabet is. LOL!
