Cute as can be

It’s Color Throwdown challenge #107 and this week our hostess with the mostess is Kristin! She’s chosen these lovely colors for us:

swatch 107

I think I may have taken a few liberties with the colors…


I used this cute paper from the Lemonade line from Basic Grey…and as I type I realize that my patterned paper is upside down! Ha, those are cherries, but now they kind of look like lollipop flowers! Any way, I stamped this adorable Pure Innocence image from My Favorite Things which must be sold out because I can’t find it on the site right now…she’s cute, no?

I stamped and colored her hair and face and shoes on white card stock then paper pieced her shirt and pants. I used a tiny flower gem on her shirt where a flower was on the image. I punched the bottom of the mat under the image with a MS border punch. The pink ribbon was the last piece on a roll from my older stash…don’t know who made it. Last I added the sentiment with a mat made from more paper in the Lemonade line.

Check out the wonderful creations from the rest of the DT and join in the challenge on the Color Throwdown!

She's so cute, Danielle! I laughed out loud at your remark about the lollipop flowers. You're right, they DO look like lollipop flowers and they're perfect!
