And now for the Thursday challenge. This week we are being challenged with color. Take a look at these fabulous colors!

Perfect Plum, Island Indigo and Smoky Slate. I haven't worked with Perfect Plum for a very long time! I forgot how pretty that color is! I will have to try and remember to pull it out more often. Since today is my birthday, I decided to make myself a drink - lol!!

I love the Happy Hour set! Lots of fun things you can do with it! And what a perfect day to make a toast!! Here are my card details:
  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Layer of Whisper White
  • On the layer of Whisper White I stamped the glass image from Happy Hour twice in Smoky Slate and then two more times on another piece of Whisper White using Perfect Plum ink
  • I cut out only the inside part of the glass from the Perfect Plum stamped images and adhered them to the glasses stamped on the Whisper White layer
  • Use the scallop edge border punch to punch a border from Island Indigo and adhere to back of Whisper White layer then adhere panel to card with dimensionals
  • Cut a strip of Smoky Slate card stock and angle both ends then adhere to card
  • Stamp greeting onto a strip of Whisper White using Island Indigo ink and flag one end then adhere to card
  • Add rhinestones to resemble the bubbles from the drinks
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary website to see what the other designers did with this color challenge! I hope you will play along with us and show us your fabulous creations! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
