Retro Sketches 152 Likes Paper Players 231

It's been a few days since I've felt much like creating.  I think it was the lack of coffee.  I ran out two days ago and was too lazy to go to the store until today.  I made a fresh pot when I got home and perked right up with my caffeine fix!  I only have two addictions these days; coffee and stamping.

You know, I just have to say it.  Although the flower looks rather orange, it's actually Real Red.  Since it's after midnight and I have another burnt out bulb for the light tent, things are just not looking as good as they could.  I really did use the colors from the challenge.  :-)


Stamp Sets:  Beautiful Bunch, Bloom with Hope (sentiment), Petal Potpourri; Inks:  Calypso Coral, Real Red, Tuxedo Black Memento; Card Stock:  Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack, Whisper White; Accessories & Tools:  Flower Medallion Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Pearl Basic Jewels, SNAIL Adhesive, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer

The sketch I used is from Retro Sketches Challenge.

  2. I love your bright red flower against the contrasting background DSP and the clustered pearl centre really is eye-catching. Thanks for joining us for our colour challenge over at the The Paper Players this week!
