Marjorie's Color Challenge #3...

Happy Wednesday!!! I'm sure everyone is looking forward to the weekend by now...I know I am! :D I can't believe we have one day left of January...time sure does go by fast!!!

Well I decided to try Marjorie Eno's Color Challenge she is hosting on her blog! This is for Color Challenge #3. The rules were to use Petal, Amethyst, Spring Iris, and Sweetleaf. Well, I only had Petal and Sweet Leaf, so I added Lilac Mist (closest thing I could find to Spring Iris) and Blush. The first stamp set that came to mind when I saw these colors was Angel Whisper (CTMH). I started out with Petal as my base (5.5 x5.5). Next I added a piece of Lilac Mist CS (5 x 5) and then added Sweet Leaf and random stamped circles from the Angel Whispers stamp set. I used our edge distresser to distress the Lilac Mist and Sweet Leaf CS ( I LOVE distressing) :D On the White Daisy CS I sponged Petal and Blush and then distressed it. I embossed the word "SMILE" in blush, and I used used pop dots for the flower and a pink button for the center. Then I used some ribbon I got at Target for a $1 for the stem. I then added 3 white brads and I was done! I am really pleased with how this turned out!!! Thanks Marjorie for this color challenge. I was hesitant at first but glad I participated! I can't wait for the next one!!! :D

Stamps: Angel Whispers Paper: Petal, Lilac Mist, Sweet Leaf, & White Daisy (CTMH) Ink: Petal, Lilac Mist, Blush, & Sweet Leaf (CTMH) Other: Ribbon (Target), Pop Dots, Edge Distresser (CTMH), Button (Hobby Lobby), White Brads (Spare Parts), Sponge (CTMH)

Have a Fabulous Day!!! :D

This is good -- very detailed but still looks ... simple, like you just picked it out in the yard by the old wood fence, you know? I love it. I like to use buttons like this, too, just as little embellishment surprises!
