Color Throw Down #142, City Crafter #57, RCC3


I absolutely loved working with the colors at the Color Throw Down #142 this week. Lime green and black are two of my favorite colors to work with anyway, so adding the grey wasn't a hard task at all. The harder thing for me was keeping it clean and simple, as I don't always do simple very well. However, I think that it still fits that category, so I'm linking it to the challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel for their RCC3. I also had fun working with stripes and polka dots on this one, although the stripes were harder to find and add then the dots. That fits the challenge at City Crafter week #57.
I used an Inkadinkado stamp that I picked up in the clearance bin today... Love the fact that I only spent $.49 on it... LOL... Gotta love that. I clear embossed over lime green chalk ink by Clearsnap. Added some striped paper from my scraps along with some green that matched the stamped image. Ran the white cardstock through an embossing folder, added the grey and that's all it took.
Oh yeah... I forgot to take a photo of the inside... it says "Bring on the cake!" =)
