PPC-CC #26 & Stamping 411 SSC #164

Boy I simply cannot believe that August is almost over! I always tell people that time goes by so much faster as an adult! In school the time always seemed to just crawl but not months and years just zip by! It's another Monday and time for another color challenge. Megan over at Picture Perfect Creations put some challenging colors together this week. I combined it with Stamping 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge #164. I got to use a bunch of new things including: the eyelet punch, the Elizabeth stamp set, my Poppy Parade ink pad, Blueberry Crisp DSP and new polystiched ribbon! If you missed my last couple posts, I've joined in on a no paper/product buying challenge. You can find info on my left side bar. I'm trying really hard to incorporate patterned paper into all of my projects. Something else that I noticed while unpacking my latest big order is that I have way too much ribbon!! So that'll be another personal goal to work my way through all my ribbon! 
That new Elizabeth stamp is sooo pretty. I colored it using a blender pen and my ink pad because I don't have the marker for it. Originally I didn't have it on the Pacific Point card base but when I glued on the main panel, I realized I glued it on upside down! There was no way that white embossed panel was coming off so I had to trim down 1/8" off of each side and slap it onto another card base. Turned out alright. Hope you all have a chance to play with us this week at PPC! I'll leave you with a photo of my precious pup Khuno. I came downstairs yesterday night to craft and found him enjoying a snooze by the patio door.
