A Crafty Girl (CIC248)

Our sponsor this week is The Paper Nest Dolls

The Paper Nest Dolls are generously offering a $25 gift certificate (WOW!!!) as our fabulous prize to our randomly drawn winner! 

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!

Here's is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our color challenge is to use petal, poppy, and pool.  

Here's my take...

I absolutely love these colors together! It's one of my favorite combinations. I used Stampin' Up Sahara Sand (card front), Real Red, Pink Pirouette, and Tempting Turquoise. I colored 'Making Valentines Avery' with my Prismacolor Pencils. The twine is from a Martha Stewart pack I got at Tuesday Morning a million years ago. I embossed my Real Red tag with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Please come join us!

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
