Stampin’ Up! Rose Garden Wonder for the Happy Stampers Blog Hop

Mornin’, y’all –  it’s Thursday and that means it’s Blog Hop Day!  Today is a color challenge – and it was, for me, a true “challenge”!  Hang on a sec and you’ll see.  Our whole team is in on the hop today, so…please take a minute to check them all out, okay? 🙂

Our challenge today was to use Basic Black, Whisper White and Sahara Sand:


I stewed a bit on how to make this card and deal with this particular set of colors.  I’ve used Sahara Sand as my primary color in the past, but for some reason it stymied my today.  I finally just did some thumbing thru my DSPs and I stumbled upon the Timeless Elegance DSP.  Black, White, Sahara Sand.  That’s it!  So, that helped.

Stampin’ Up! You’ve Got This…..

So, yesterday’s share was quite bright and spring-y and featured a very busy little bee.  For today, I went a little more on the quiet and elegant side of things.  This was another submission for our “purple” challenge and I really love the combination of black, Sahara Sand and Rich Razzleberry.  To me, the combo really screams “elegant”.  Or, more likely, states it quietly and probably with an upper-end British Accent! 😉

I used the new You’ve Got This stamp set and took my inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches challenge #194.  Be sure to head over to check out their blog:

Very simple and clean, huh?  Well, I didn’t stray very far from the sketch.  Take a look-see:
