Lucy's Color Challenge

I love all of Lucy's cards :) They are always so PRETTY. And since I'm always checking out her lovely creations, I knew I wanted to participate in her color challenge. I LOVE the colors she chose. love. So I was really excited to get started on the challenge. That's when I discovered that while I make cards with these colors all the time, I pretty much always use either white or cream too...It took me a little bit to get out of that way of thinking lol, but once I did, I had fun :) Here is what I made:

I used 3 different stamp sets for this card- Papertrey's Damask Designs and Butterfly Kisses (not for the butterfly, lol) and Verve's Thankful Blossoms. I paper pieced the butterfly after stamping it on the pink so the antenna already be there. And once again, I wished I had Polka dot basics from Papertrey...I always end up choosing something else instead lol. ( I think in a way I wonder if it would be easier to have one big polkadot background stamp, so that I wouldn't have to try to line them up to stamp the full background. What do you think? Do you prefer the strips like Papertrey has or a full background? Which would you recommend?!)
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is starting out well :)

  1. Oh wow this is just gorgeous - such a soft and pretty card. I love the bog polka dots here - they looks wonderful. I also wish I had Papertrey polka dot stamps... one day maybe :) Until then - your own polka dots are FANTASTIC. Thank you for joining in my challenge.

  4. Gorgeous! I have the polka dots basics 2 set, and I find myself using it ALL the time- it's definitely a well-worth-it purchase. Maybe you can add it to your Christmas list. :) I love what you did with these colors- so pretty! Thanks for sharing. :)
