KWerner Color combo #50!!!

Can you even believe it? 50 color combos! Wowziers!!!! I am so excited about participating in this wonderful challenge. I finally have my stamping room together and I can break out my new stamp sets from Papertrey Ink for this challenge. They have been in my home for 1 week without any love. Without further gabber, here is the challenge This is my take.

Isn't this too much fun!!! I finally had some time to play with my new stamps. This is Scattered Showers from Dawn McVey. Yet again I am in love with Dawn and her sets. I have tons of ideas already. I love that this set helps with the cheering up type cards that we all need.

I am really proud of this bow. Usually bows are the thorn in my side, but this one came together nicely. It helped to have tons of ribbon. Gina showed how much she uses for a bow, 2 1/4 times around the card and that was really helpful. It gave me room to work my bow out.

Oh, I am now in LOVE with aqua mist. I was not getting how my ink pad was so much lighter than my paper, so I finally ordered the refill and it is now one of my favorite colors ever!!!! I also used my crystal effects on the bigger unbrella so that it shines. I almost forgot it added gloss as well as being such a wonderful adhesive. I think I will be adding gloss to many umbrellas to come LOL!

Thanks for looking and thank you Kristina for all of your hard work with the challenges.

It's a good life!

Terri E.
