Just Tell Me Everything!

Happy Thursday!

I had a super fun day of stamping with my chickies yesterday.  I actually got one card made, in between all the laughing and silliness.  It wasn't this one - I'll share that one with you another day.  But today, I wanted to share a little card I made in response to a challenge set up by my buddy, Lee, who challenged us to create a card using our favorite "color combo."  My favorite color combo changes frequently, but as of today, it's Robin's Egg Blue/Lt. Aqua and Orange, with a splash of white.  I think these would make amazing wedding colors.  Don't you?!!

I used some new JustRite stamps that I received recently called "Stitched With Love."  Super cute images and sentiments - I'll be using more of these again real soon!  I love anything that has to do with sewing lately . . . kind of obsessed really.  I really had fun making this - thanks for the challenge, Lee!  Oh, and did you know that if you create projects using JustRite stamps, you can upload them into the new JustRite Flickr group for a chance to win a stamp set.  Sounds easy enough, right?  I'm always up for an easy challenge like that!

You know how much I love this card because I told you so yesterday. The blue/orange color combo is not one I would have thought of but it looks yummy. And of course the little scissor charm is the perfect added touch!

This is an interesting color combo, but it works so well! And I am really loving your background too! I'll have to get one of those! Not that I don't love the rest of your card too! LOL!
