Thinking of You in Pink & Green

It's it winter, yet?  I know!  I know!  You don't want to think about winter but when the temperatures are in the nineties with a tropical humidity here in Iowa, you can understand why I'm ready for some cool weather.  Right now our temperature is 86 degrees F but it feels like 93 degrees F.  To top it off, I had to go to the grocery store.  That heat and humidity just saps the strength right out of you.  It's a good thing I made my card before I left.


Stamp Set:  Colorful Seasons (Stampin' Up!); Inks:  Pink Pirouette (Stampin' Up!), Strawberry Milkshake (Taylored Expressions); Cardstock:  Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White (both Stampin' Up!); Patterned Paper:  Nana's Nursery Baby Girl (DCWV); Other:  Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Rhinestone Basic Jewels (both Stampin' Up!)

The sketch I used is from the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.

  1. I love the soft colours you have used on your card they work beautifully together. I wish we could swap weather is is cold and wet here in Australia. I'm dreaming of summer! Thanks for sharing your card this week with us at CC&S!

    1. Thanks, Emily! I'm just thankful I have air conditioning. The heat is so oppressive that it takes your breath away.

  2. Like how you sponged around the edge of the oval to tie in the stamped image and sentiment on it. Thanks for joining us on this week's CC&S challenge.

    1. Thanks, Fiona! These are colors I normally don't use so I never know how things will turn out.
