Another Tuesday Color Challenge

***Don't forget! My blog candy is still open - if you want to enter, please comment on the Sunday April 5th post. You have until Sunday/Monday to enter!****

So, onto the business at hand - today's Color Challenge. Which surprisingly didn't contain any In Colors, greens or pinks - Emily the hostess loves those colors. The colors for today are/were: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, and Close to Cocoa.

I started off with the cardstock and then hopped over to where I've stashed my dp. Thankfully spring break at daycare's been good to me (so far) and I haven't lost all my brain cells (yet.) So I remembered I still have a stash of Le Jardin dp from SU - and that 2 of the colors in the paper are So Saffron and Bashful Blue.

I then remembered one of the PTI stamp sets I fell in love with as soon as I saw it - Quilter's Sampler. I think I like it so much because I can't sew a straight stitch on a machine, so this is the easy way to create a cute quilt without it looking like a 5 year old wacked out on sugar made it.

The quilt squares are stamped in Palette Dark Chocolate on the dp and cut out. I colored in parts of the blocks with Copics to add more depth.

The sentiment is also on another piece of Le Jardin dp and it's also from the Quilter's Sampler set.

Stamps: PTI - Quilter's Sampler. Paper: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Vintage Cream, Le Jardin dp. Ink: Palette Dark Chocolate (PTI). Accessories: buttons, corner rounder punch, Copics, dimensionals.

Here's hoping that your week is nice!

Love this card! I've been considering this stamp set in the catalog, what a great use of it with today's color combo. :)
