Blogger's Challenge Friday!!

Whip out your sunglasses...you're gonna need them!!! Today's Blogger's Challenge is to use the colors Turquoise, Green Galore, and Pink (I went with Stampin' Up's Pixie Pink). This card uses some of my favorite retired Stampin' Up sets...Silly Sealife and Small Sayings. When we are given a color challenge, I really try to stay with just the listed colors. I didn't have any Pixie Pink buttons, so I used some Hero Arts clear buttons with Pixie Pink card stock 1/2" circles. I like everything to match as close as possible. The little Doodlebug Designs brads are a perfect match to the Green Galore panel that I ran through my 'bug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I finished my card off with a little faux stitching on the bottom corners.

I cannot wait to see what the other ladies in the Blogger's Challenge group came up with. If you'd like to as well, please click on the Blogger's Challenge logo (on the right side of my blog) for all of their links. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles!!! :D
