SPCC #34

Yay!! I'm sooo glad that I have today and tomorrow off. It was such a LONG stretch last week of 6 days. Thank goodness I managed to get the last color combo done yesterday! So far I'm glad I have been able to do SPCC's challenges every week since I've stumbled onto the blog. I'm so glad Samantha and the amazing SP divas are running this blog. The biggest reason I like it, other than the fact that all the divas are the sweetest people every, is because they don't overload you with colors. Some color challenges give you 4-6 colors to use and it gets overwhelming for me because I really like CAS (clean and simple) cards. This week's colors worked perfectly with the leftover card stock I had from 2 weekends ago. I just needed to swap out the Summer Sun and replace it with Rich Razzleberry. Here's an easel card again I've got a few weddings this year so I figured I'd get a head start! You can't tell but the bride's veil and dress are lined with Dazzling Diamond. And the words "To have and to hold" are darker because I stamped it in Versamark first, then Rich Razzleberry so I could emboss it with some clear powder. Off to make more cards! Three cheers to days off!! Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray!
