Crushed curry flowers...

Greetings fellow stampers!  Thanks for stopping by today, I'm hosting my first sketch challenge at Sunday Stamps this week. With spring in the air, my inspiration for my sketch was a flower planter. Although I sometimes joke that Phoenix only has two seasons, summer and hotter summer, lol.  It's been a warmer than usual weekend. Anyhow, as I mentioned last Sunday, Stampin' Up! is under going a color refresh by introducing 10 colors, some former InColors and a new color. That's on top of the five new InColors that will be introduced with the new catalog! Still with me? Okay, so I happen to still have my classic ink pads for several former InColors, which I was jumping for joy!

The flowers from the Button Buddies stamp set were inked in crushed curry. I love this color! It's a richer, bold yellow.  It might make me crave thai food more, pad thai anyone? The ribbon is retired from several catalogs ago but it worked out perfect for my card today. I used our early espresso designer buttons.

The butterfly is inked in bermuda bay, another returning InColor from past catalogs. Bermuda bay is a cooler blue, does the name take you away on vacation? I love the clever names Stampin' Up! has for our colors. 

So here is our sketch for this week. Make sure you check out the creations from my fellow designers here and I hope you play along with us. We love to see what you create. You have until Friday, April 19th at 6 pm to link up your project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful Sunday!  Until next time.
