CTD 436 Pale Yellow Green Blue

 It feels so good to get into my crafty space and sit down and create.  Today, I saw the challenge image at Color Throw Down and I immediately knew what I wanted to create. 


Its been ages since I just played with my ink pads.  I have a lot of them, and they have been neglected lately as I have been in coloring mode. Avery Elle's Oh Happy Day stamp hadn't been put away yet, so I played with its lesser used elements. It consists mostly of sentiments. There are two little flower images along with leaves and center dots as well as the sentiment.

After I made my first card front, I made 4 more. I had such a good time just stamping with SSS inks in Duckling, Blue Jay and Green Leaf.  I didn't stop at the card fronts...I decorated envelopes as well.

Here is my card, and below the set.

I mounted the card fronts on yellow, blue, green, and cream. The back flap was stamping similarly to the card front and then a little posy of flowers on the front just under the return address area.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
