{Blogger's Challenge Week 30-Color Combo Blue Bayou, Real Red, River Rock}


It's Friday again! Yippee! A few more hours and the weekend has begun!

When I first saw this week's color challenge on the Blogger's Challenge assignment, I thought, ick...but after working with it for about 5 minutes, I thought...ok, I like it.

I used a retired set, Loving Hearts, that was given to me, and it's the first time that I used it. The homespun look of this set was perfect for this color combination. The four squares are actually one stamp, but I stamped it three times in the different colors and just cut them apart and mounted them onto various colors of the card stock.

Please take a moment and check out all of the other fabulous creations by the other Blogger's Challenge participants. Links to their blogs can be found on the left-hand side bar.

Stamps: Loving Hearts-Retired; Papers: Real Red, River Rock, Blue Bayou, Ginger Blossom Double Sided Designer Paper; Inks: Real Red, River Rock, Blue Bayou; Accessories: SU Buttons, SU Linen Thread, Red Double Stitched Ribbon from Michael's, Blue Bayou Double Stitched Ribbon, Silver Cord, Charm from Bridal Department at Michael's, Red Rhinestone by K & Company, Making Memories Heart Chipboard, Stampin' Dimensionals.
