It's Good to Dream



I may have taken on too much with this card, but Mr. Big Shot was the tool of choice here. I used the Big Shot to die cut several flowers, leaves and top notes to help me complete this card.



I combined three challenges...the Pals Paper Arts flowers theme challenge #31, this fabulous sketch of Laura's (#49) at 2 Sketches 4 You...



and Arielle's cool color combo, the ColourQ Challenge #27 using Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede & Whisper White...so preppy, don't you think?



What's super cool about these colors is that they will ALL be in the Color Collection in the upcoming 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog. We just found out that Tangerine Tango is an old In Color that Stampin' Up! will be bringing back to stay...pretty exciting for us SU demos:)





Stamps: Razzle Dazzle
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Whisper White CS, retired DSP
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango
Other: Big Shot, Top Note Die, Daisy, Birds & Blooms and Leaves Sizzlets, Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads, Mat Pack & Paper Piercing Tool, Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain


Go check out these challenges for yourself and get a little crafty inspiration:) Have a great day!

I think they are preppy colors but you did a great job with the feminine aspect of them as well! I also like how the top note feels like pockets...(was that intentional or my perception? Either way it's awesome!)
