This is my card for "Our Creative Corner" which is the card sketch design, and also for the "Color Throwdown" challenge using Bordering Blue, Rose Red and Pink Pirouette! " entry. I chose the fun "Loads of Love" stamp set for these challenges. It was alot of fun working with the sketch and the colors. I am always stretched when I try one of these, and learn from all the other wonderful and talented stampers who submit their entries.

I wanted to try this Color Throwdown Challenge and chose the snails from the "Garden Whimsey" set because I was thinking it would be nice if summer would just slow down!!! One more month and I head back to substitute teaching and early mornings! I'm not ready yet! But my card actually turned into a "Happy Retirement" card, because the snails just seemed to fit!!! Certainly Celery cardstock was embossed with the dotted swiss cuddlebug folder and layered on Chocolate Chip textured cardstock then some Perfect Plum. My snails are inked in the challenge colors and mounted on a square scallop punch of textured Chocolate Chip. I popped them up on a little stampin dimentional. I just happened to have some retired Ribbon Originals to top it off! Can't wait to give this card to a coworker who is retiring soon where I work part time ( Coldwater Creek !)

My colors are retired Riding Hood Red and Baja Blue just because I still love these colors! I also used several punches as you can tell:
Small Tag punch, Large oval, Scallop Oval, and Curly Label. Some silver cord, Baja Blue retired ribbon and red hemp twine "tied" it all up. My box is made of Baja Blue and Riding Hood Red cardstock. Do you realize Christmas is only 5 months away?!!! Just follow this post for directions for the tag box! http://www.stampinup.com/us/documents/quad_box.pdf

This cute stamp set has a funky giraffe, elephant, owl and whale. It is one of the new Stampin Up! sets. It also has this fun designer series paper to go with it called Tall Tales. So, I used a Mojo Monday sketch to come up with this card. I have never posted on Mojo Monday before, but thought I would give it a try. Using the accent color Bermuda Bay, I colored the whale with the coordinating marker. The other colors are So Saffron and Chocolate Chip. The scallop punch and a brass brad top off the accent, along with So Saffron ribbon.
Come to my "Get the Scoop" party this Sunday and try out some new Stampin Up! products and a scoop of ice cream too! Go to my Stampin Up! website for details.
