Color Throwdown 125 and Stamping 411 187

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I think that my brain got frozen today and that it severely affected my stamping!  Earlier today I volunteered to serve hot chocolate to sledders at Borderland State Park and it was cold!  I mean, bone-chilling, frost-bite temperatures cold!  When I got home, I intended to spend some time in my stamp room, but I was finding it difficult to concentrate!  I finally forced myself to get it together and ended up creating a card using the Stamping 411 sketch challenge and the Color Throwdown color challenge.

I went through several iterations of this card before I settled on this clean and simple one.

Oh how I love crumb cake!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Hi Jen,
I love Crumb Cake too!! It is my FAV colour! I love your CAS take on the sketch and that is one stamp set I wish I had bought. Very pretty card!

The clean & simple style of this card is perfect! What a brave girl to stay outside serving hot chocolate...I'm dreading walking to the car today!! I bet they really appreciated it though :)

You are really on a roll Jen - this is another absolute stunner! I love the background paper and the way the focal panel is small in comparison. Perhaps I should try sitting in the fridge for half an hour before stamping today!
