Color Challenge

I have been so crazy running around trying not to wait til the last minute to do things....but that hasn't worked.  Monday, my baby boy turned one....officially.  It flies by so fast.  But I took the day off to play with the family.  So, I'll be brief with my posting.

Here is the challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week.  It's a color one and I was quite stumped seeing that I didn't have Pear Pizzaz or Blushing Bride.  Of all the colors that I keep in stock (which is pretty much every SU color) I had run out of only those 2 colors.  OH the irony.  :)




SO....I improvised and used Certainly Celery and Pink Pirouette.  I hope it doesn't mess anyone up.  I wanted to make a cute box for a fun gift for a friend.  I love the greeting on the tag.  Hee hee!



Here is a nice close up shot.  However, in the cropping, I think it might have made the photo kind of grainy.  Sorry about that.


I've got to get to bed.  It's after midnight, so it's officially December 6th now.  I'll have to finish this post another time.  YAWN.....night night.

I have nightmares about running out of colors:-) I have emergency stashes, lol! Your gift box is super cute and I really like the color substitutions!

Your ribbon flower takes grand central stage!! Such a lovely little box to hand to a friend...I just placed a restock order for the colors I'm low on. I love having bunches of cardstock on hand, unfortunately our new digs for the year don't really suit that very well :(

Love it! Great idea to use the ribbon with the lace paper border. You're so creative and the colors look great!
