CR84FN Color Challenge 46

Since I am still sitting here, nursing my ankle, trying to wean myself off crutches I decided to check out some bloggy challenges to pass the time. I loved this color combo and decided to give it a whirl.


And here's my card!


I had to rummage around my scrap paper box for both yellow and pink. Yellow is not a color I use that often. The striped paper is Echo Park and the other paper is Crate Paper. I have been enjoying this Hero Arts cupcake stamp set I stumbled upon in my stamp drawer recently.


The sentiment is Papertrey Ink. I love it because it's so versatile and could be used for many different occasions!



That's what I got today!! Do you ever do any challenges from challenge blogs? Which are your favorites? I need some new challenges to keep me busy today.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Love this pretty card. I have that cupcake stamp, and forgot all about it! Looks great paper pieced. Sorry you are on crutches. I'm home today, too, and trying to take advantage of the crafty time. I suggest checking out either One Layer Wednesday, or Runway challenges: http://simplicitybylateblossom.blogspot.com/2012/01/one-layer-wednesday-75-odd-birthday.html and http://runwayinspired.blogspot.com/

I love the card, Mara! I would have cut the cupcake holder from Kraft cardstock, but it looks better just stamped. I love that you think ahead about what would look best. Great card!
My favorite challenges are from the unity stamp company blog. They give out $100 stamps as prizes and there aren't very many entries. I just love Unity stamps and am always looking to add to my collection, :oD
