PPC-CC #48 & Saturday Sketch Challenge # 189

Happy Monday everyone! Hopefully you had a restful weekend and if it wasn't restful, then hopefully it was at least productive. It's time for another Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo! Can you believe we're up to #48?! It definitely doesn't feel like it's been that long. But I guess Megan did have a baby during that time! That's a good nine months right there! I'm loving this week's combo because I love Crumb Cake. It looks so awesome as a card base. I combined this week's PPC-CC with Stamping 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge #189
The stamp set is called Just Believe from Stampin' Up and I love it. I went to a workshop a while back that used this stamp set. The demonstrator had us color the image with markers and then we spritzed it with some water. The effect was gorgeous. Almost a faux watercoloring effect. Just be careful you don't get mist happy because then the ink runs too much and you'll end up with a glob of gross colors. I finished it off with some pretty pearls from Stampin' Up as well. Hope you get a chance to pop over to the PPC blog to check out what the other gals have created! Have a great Monday!

You my friend are the Queen of CAS cards. Hope you weekend has been productive for you and if not productive then at least crafty..:). I can't believe we are on #48 either..isn't that so exciting.

I never would have come up with a card that pretty out of a sketch that plain! And your stamping it top-notch in my book
