FACT: My favorite cup of coffee is definitely the first one of the day! 🙂 Hello peeps and welcome to Saturday! I had a rough day at work yesterday, we moved offices and that was way more work than it needed to be. I’m not loving my new space but it’s temporary because we are moving again in October to a brand new space. Why just move once when you can do it twice?! I did have a very relaxing evening at home last night. I watched a couple of movies on HBO and crafted for bit. It was rainy and chilly here yesterday so I had no desire to go anywhere. A nice quiet evening at home was just what I needed after my busy week! How was the start to your weekend?
This week over at the Pals Paper Arts they have a color challenge. I love when I see one of those and think hmmm…
After a little pondering I saw stars! LOL! I also made my card skinny (3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″) so I could let the sentiment hang off the side and it still will fit inside a standard envelope. The base of today’s card is Old Olive Card Stock. My background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped some images from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Pool Party on. For the greeting I heat embossed one from the Four Your Stamp Set in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Old Olive and cut it out with the Word Bubbles Framelits Dies. The stars are from the Simply Stars Stamp Set and are stamped in Summer Starfruit and cut out with my Paper Snips. Three more stars are punched out from some Summer Starfruit with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. So, after finishing my card I really do like the color combination! The greeting heat embossed on the Old Olive is definitely my favorite element on the card. I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. You know how much I appreciate you coming by to see what I’m up to and I hope that you have an excellent Saturday! 🙂
