In Color....Oh Yes!

I'm learning to love the new In Colors.  This week we are challenged to use them in a project at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  Check out the other lovely projects using the new In Colors.  

Here is what I came up with.  There is a lot of white space and just a touch of texture and pop of color with the new Dahlias and the Summer Starfruit striped satin ribbon.  Simple....sweet....you know.....my usual! :)


And now for a close up of those adorable dahlias.  So fun, but not the easiest to mail, I'm sure.  So this will be a hand it to someone card. I used the stamp set called Friendly Phrases.


Here is the challenge info....get on over there and join us!!


While I was outside taking photos of the card for this week....a little cutie came out to join me!  However, the gardener across the street was giving him concern.....check out his face!  


He was trying to have fun, but kept getting nervous from the loud leaf blower across the street.


Here's his sweet smile, too bad he's looking down.  You're missing out on those big blue/green eyes.


LOVE THIS KID!!

Happy Stamping,
Krista

Gosh, you are a genius! I love how simply and beautifully you got every one of those colors accounted for. I had a hard time throwing down all that color, and here you are makin' it look way too fabulous and elegant. :) erika
