Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge #25


This weekend sweet Cassie is hosting Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge at Paper Craft Planet: http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/cleardollarstampsllcweekendcolorchallenge/forum/topics/clear-dollar-stamps-weekend-9


Cassie chose some great colors for us to work with, using some retiring in colors from SU:

Kiwi Kiss

Riding Hood Red

Summer Sun

Chocolate Chip

Neutral: White


I decided to use SASSY SCALLOPS and PEONY from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront I am loving this Sassy Scallops set. I love how it works with scallops so I decided to try what I saw Shawne do, use them as backgrounds. So that is exacltly what I did. Although they don't show up great in this photo I chose the flower and small dot.


Originally I used one of each color for the squares and was going to put my flower at an angle over the top. I did not like that look, so I went with this design instead. I love the clear embossed peony for the BG, although it does not show up well in my photo.


Thanks Cassie for a fun challenge. And thank you Shawne too for my inspiration.

Thanks for visiting.
