My Favorite New Color

Back today with another card using MY FAVORITE NEW summer color from CTMH. This color is called "Smoothie". Isn't it just yummy? I kept this color combo simple by pairing it with Colonial White and Cocoa. I've been working on some other color combos that I'll share later. This color combo screamed "elegant" to me, so I reached for my favorite stamp set, "Damask Tiles". I stamped up a piece of patterned paper and layered from there. I used the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You (a bit loosely, I might add).

I also used the frame from "Party Pennants", which, again, I'll share more about that later. I heat embossed it with ivory embossing powder onto Cocoa CS. I an so glad I took the extra time to do this because I love how it looks.

Also wanted to wish my son, Chad, a Happy 10th Birthda,y and my Dad a Happy Birthday, too! Chad's was Tuesday and my Dad's is today, so we've been doing lots of celebrating. WooHoo!Thanks so much for stopping by today!
