I {heart} SPCC Color Combos!

Well, I'm a bit delayed in getting this posted to my blog this know, sometimes life just won't allow for scrappy time!

I was thrilled to find out on Monday that I was chosen as the winning entry for SPCC Color Combo #7!!! Thanks so much Samantha!!! Can't wait to try out the Elmer adhesives that are headed my way!

And I also recently was a winner of some Basic Grey! I was randomly chosen as a winner on the Kenner Road blog! A 6x6 Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad & opalines arrived in my mailbox on Tuesday! These are so fun! & perfect for card making :0) Thanks Kerry Lynn! Your kits look amazing...I just drool...

Here is the SPCC color combo challenge for this week:

I decided to create a card again...I am just having so much fun lately with that! Plus, I was needing a special anniversary card :0) & here's a card sketch that I came across on Diana's blog (go check her out, because her card is AMAZING! Love her flower technique!!!)

The sketch is from 2 Sketches 4 You:

There is a $100 gift certificate up for grabs at 2 Sketches 4 You for JustRite Stamps this week! Hurry, go get a card made!!! :0)

So here's my take on both challenges:

As you can see, I didn't wait long to use some of that fabulous Basic Grey Lemonade! I got as close as I could on the "Dusty Durango" color...I think mine is a bit darker, more like rust, but it works! The Happy Anniversary sentiment stamp is from a Stampin' Up set - Great Greetings and I used Stampin' Up ink - Cameo (it matched the Dusty Durango almost perfectly!). I created the stamped circle image using a Martha Stewart stamp from the Heart & Flowers set and then cut it out...a really fun set that I haven't used much yet, but I am definitely going to be playing with it more! The Stampin' Up ink I used was More Mustard.

Here's a close up of the button/flower/sentiment:
