PPC-CC 23 & Just Add Ink #27


Boy I can't believe we're at the end of July already!! This is insane! It's amazing how little we've gotten done for our home renovations. We haven't touched the poor laundry room since we tore down all the gross wood paneling. If you want to see photos, check out my previous post here. Enough babbling! Onto this week's color challenge over at Picture Perfect Creations. This week Megan gave us colors that fall into my comfort zone. Although I do love Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight still needs to do more work if it wants to replace Summer Sun in my heart. Having only 3 colors to work with is also another one of my comfort areas. I have a hard time working in more than 3 colors so I'm glad we have a 3 color week. I paired it with Just Add Ink #27, which is the sketch shown above. 
I used the retired Walk in the Park DSP and the new hostess stamp set called Because I care. It may look a bit funny in photos with that layering effect I tried to pull off (but didn't really...) on the hydrangea but in person it looks a tad better. Did you notice a new piece of embellishment that I've never used before? It's a pin that was made by Lisa over at Pretty Pin Embellishments and she graciously sponsored a few of our challenges over at PPC. Hopefully you get a chance to play along with us this week!

Hi Sandy, the contrast of the yellow flower against the grey background works so well. As does splitting the flower into four. Love the hair pin too.
