Okay, I admit, I almost didn't make time to play along with Kristina's color challenge this week. Shocking, I know. But THE SHOES! They got to me. I kept staring at them. I must find out if she knows where they're from. Here's a link to Kristina's challenge which ends this evening at 7 pm MT. I also used Jen's Sketch For You to Try and came up with this little 4.25 inch square beauty. I think these colors are so sophisticated and worked perfectly for this wedding or anniversary card (whichever I need it for first, hee hee). The basic gray background is stamped with Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Retro. Those bg stamps really come in handy for color challenges. That way you can add some bg interest without digging through your paper stash trying to make something work. I mounted each of those little words (from Sweet Love) on a separate block with a slight curve and stamped them separately around the circle. The flower is made with Spellbinders' Flower Creations and a single Dew Drop center. The lace is from a little spool I just bought yesterday at Walmart.
