Color Challenged

I’m in the middle of birthday weekend planning, so my creative time is a bit shorter this week.  I’ve got the cake ordered, the present purchased and now I just need to do a grocery store trip sans children by Friday.  DS2 wants a Hummer themed cake (of all things) and an overall theme of automobiles, so I’m brainstorming for creative ideas.  I was going to attempt to create a Hummer shaped cake, but common sense overruled and I ordered a sheet cake decorated with a Hot Wheels Hummer instead.  So far, I have table decor and a few party decorations planned.  Next up:  simple party favors, which are beginning to come together in my mind.  Now to see if I can pull it all off.  Company begins arriving Friday evening.  Stay tuned for after-the-party pictures!

In the meantime…

It seems like forever since I’ve played along with the Color Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.  I checked and it was clear back in June!  This week’s colors are Stampin’ Up’s Regal Rose, Blushing Bride and Lucky Limeade, a rather pretty combination!  I chose Lucky Limeade as the card base and Blushing Bride as the matte & flower color and then added embellishments in those two colors.  I used just a little Regal Rose as an accent on the flower centers.  I tied the twine in three places.  The second and third knots are just pieces of twine tied onto the first piece.

Stamps – SU (Punch Bunch set)
Paper – Gina K white CS, SU Blushing Bride & Lucky Limeade CS
Accessories – SU Lucky Limeade, Blushing Bride, Regal Rose markers, baker’s twine, pink pearls, SU scalloped circle punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder, foam squares (popped up scalloped circle)

    The card is so sweet. I love the simple image and the addition of those few twine knots are a perfect final touch!
