This is a card I made for today sketch challenge. The color combo was inspired by a card made by CharmWarm on SCS. I love this combo! Its my new fave! I got happy mail yesterday I had 6 packages in the mail and my new papertreyink stamps were in it. The lady bug is from their new Little Lady May stamp set release. Have I said how much I *heart* papertreyink's stamps! Nicole does a great job designing these stamps.
The card base is regal rose matted with WWcs stamped with flowers and dots in regal rose, certainly celery, and black. The panels are black matted with celery with the ladybug trail stamped in celery. Its hard to see in the pic but the black vertical panel is pierced. The celery polka dot ribbon is from Michaels. The black brads are from Michaels also. What I love about this set is the body is 2 different pieces so you I stamped the bold part of the body in regal rose with the outline and antenna stamped in black. This set has 3 different antennas for the lady so you can them to match the look of your card another perk of this set.
We had a bad day here yesterday. DH pulled out his back at work. He was put on light duty at work which means he cant drive his truck (which is going to kill him). The doctor put him on a limited # of hrs he can work so he is having to do lite office work for the next 3 days until he goes back to the Dr. Those of you that know me and DH personally know that my husband is not afraid of hardwork. He works for Coca-Cola and throws about 600-700 cases of drinks a day and he weighs about a buck '05(soaking wet)! So having to sit around the office today doing odd and ends is going to drive him nuts!!!!!!!!! So he will be a joy the next few days! I love my husband but he is a bigger baby than my children are sometimes. Be back tommorrow with a new challenge post. Hope you all have a happy stampin day!
