Color Challenge Today



Happy Tuesday Everyone!!! It is a beautiful day here in Ohio finally. No clouds and the sun is shining. Today I decided to do the color challenge over at SCS CC223. The colors today are Chocolate Chip, Kraft, and Real Red. What a GREAT color combo.. I decided to use this fun NEW SET from Artful INKables called Steampunk Sarah. I just love this set and thought it went so well with today's color combo. On the inside it reads.... Live the life that you've imagined!! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Here's the recipe
Image & Sentiment - Artful INKables, stamped in momento ink, cut out and popped up balloon. Colored with copics

Cardstock - Kraft, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Misc. SU DP

Accessories - Twine, Pop dots, Bling, Basic Grey Buttons, Misc. String, CB Swiss Dots Folder
