Get out your "blues" for this card....

It's been raining for 2 days over here, so its a perfect time to clean and stamp. :)  I was working outside early in the week trying to get a lot of the yard work done, so I am welcoming the rain now.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Colour Me Card Challenge.  Here's the challenge:
The colors are: Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point and Tempting Turquoise.  And here's the card I made. UPDATED PICTURES:

I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and stamped one flower with Pacific Point ink onto a Tempting Turquoise cardstock and another flower with Bermuda Bay ink onto Coastal Cabana cardstock.


My sister-in-laws birthday was on Earth Day, and I missed it.  As a result, I used my Remembering Your Birthday stamp set to make this into a belated birthday card. :)  Sadly, Stampin' UP! is retiring all the Core'dinations cardstock. Here, I used a piece of Coastal Cabana Core'dinations cardstock and ran it thru my Honeycomb embossing folder and then sanded it down a bit. I also stamped White craft ink onto a piece of Vellum cardstock using an image from the Mosaic Madness stamp set to create my own background paper. I used my Word Bubble Dies ......so much fun!


To finish off the card, I added different sized flags in all the challenge colors and wrapped them up with a piece of Coastal Cabana DSP and White Bakers Twine.  A fun card to make!  

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
