TGIF Color Challenge #tgifc67 : Suite Sayings Thank You Card

Life is so hard sometimes, and sometimes we can't always do what we want to do, can we? That is how it has been lately with stamping. I had some issues with my legs recently and so I had to keep them elevated...which makes it difficult to sit at my desk and create. So I colored in my big easy chair, when I had good light, until I was able to be up and about and able to sit at my desk. And I LOVED IT! If my life was perfect, I would create and make cards and scrapbook to my heart's content. But in the meanwhile, I will do what I can when I can.

Over at TGIF Challenge Blog, they have a color challenge this week, #tgifc67 . The colors are Smoky Slate, Island Indigo, and Flirty Flamingo. This is the first time I have used Flirty Flamingo. I don't know why I haven't used it yet. It is one of my favorite new In-Colors, along with Dapper Denim. I must have been saving it up to use on something really special. And boy, do I love this card! I think it turned out amazing! Love, love, love it! Take a look:

All supplies are from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted:

  1. This is so beautiful! I have the decorative label punch, too, but I hardly ever see anyone use it. Thanks for giving me such a gorgeous idea of what to do with it!

    1. Thanks Natalie! You are so kind! The Decorative Label Punch is one of my favorites for punching out a greeting! It's usually just the right size! Thanks for visiting my blog!

    2. I was so inspired by this card that I just had to CASE it. Check out my blog post here, where I highlight your card:
