Whimsy Color Challenge and Then Some...

Happy Monday Morning All!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We went to Vermont with family and had a great time. Although it did rain a bit, big surprise, I know, we did have a fun time! We're back now and the week has begun. Hope your morning is off to a good start. I have a busy day of house work and errands, but before I get to all of that I wanted to share my card for this week's Whimsy Stamps Challenge.

The challenge this week is to use the color combo of red, yellow, and orange on your project. You don't need to use a Whimsy image and you can combine with other challenges. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday and the button challenge from Pile it On!

My card uses retired SU! papers with reds, oranges, and yellows. I also used Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, and So Saffron card stock. The image is Whimsy Duck and has been colored with Copics. I embellished with striped grosgrain ribbon, buttons, and a felt flower. The sentiment is from Whimsy Animal Love.

Thanks for dropping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with a Whimsy Sneak Peek! Have a great day! Happy stamping! :)

Hello Denise, glad you had a lovely break. I could do with one atm. Busy with viewing and out house hunting so crafting time very limited. Not to mention temps of 30 degree's which is pretty rare over here. Lovely weather, but gosh, its hot!!!! Your card is lovely, the duck looks hot to, maybe he's searching for the nearest pond LOL
