Hello and welcome. Thanks for stopping by today.

For this post, I am sharing my card for the Sunday Stamps challenge going on right now. This time around is a color combo challenge and boy did this one challenge me!

I don't do well when the color pink is involved. I have 2 boys and I don't use the color often. I actually have never been a huge pink girl so I get a little nervous when I have to use it. As you will tell in my card, I used pink more than others to try and challenge myself.

I started off with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Whisper White card stock to make the card base and scored it to make a top folding card. I then took another piece of Whisper White card stock and cut at 4 x 5 1/4. I used the smallest star in the Stampin Up Stars Framelits dies to cut stars going from the top left to the bottom right. I then cut out the same size stars from Old Olive, Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette card stock. I added the Whisper White piece to the card base with foam tape so it would have some dimension. To give some added texture, I stamped lines from a circle stamp in the Hello Darling set  in Old Olive on 2 of the stars and placed them at the top and bottom. I laid the blue and green stars inside their cut outs but placed the pink ones randomly on top.

I finished it off by punching out tiny pink flowers from a retired punch (Itty Bitty Punches) and put a rhinestone in the middle of each. Then I heat embossed the word hello from the same Hello Darling stamp set in silver embossing powder from Ranger. It helped tie in the rhinestones and I love the way it looked.

It turned out far better than I thought it would in the beginning. This card started out as something totally different and then I scrapped that one and started on this one. Hope this inspired you to head over to the Sunday Stamps blog and join us in this challenge.
