I love when I make time to stamp just for fun. No rules or occasion, just messing around.
One of the things I had wanted to do was to try a color combination that Katie raves about often: pink and orange. My daughter was wearing a shirt the other day that had a pretty pale pink and a soft orange with dark brown and maroon and it all went together so nicely, so I decided that I would use those colors. I also had these teeny pink pom-poms tucked in a corner of my desk, so I wanted to add one of those, too. Then, I was reading on the A Muse Lounge about Lori and paper flowers, so I wanted to find a way to get a flower accent in, too! So, here I was wanting to make a card without rules, and I was imposing restrictions all over the place. But, I had no reason to make the card, so I think I justified all the things I wanted to include.
In the end, this is what I made:
I used this cute party chick because I thought she'd look good in soft orange with a pink pom-pom hat. I used a punch and one little Doodlebug Paper Frill for the flower accent. And, I managed to get three of the four colors on the card. It ended up a cute card, something fun to send to a friend who has good news or a birthday.
Well, I am off to Richmond, VA today to watch some college hoops with my husband and some college friends. GO PATRIOTS!
