June Blog Hop

Welcome to another Stampers Anonymous Team Blog Hop! This month we have a fun Colour Challenge! We had to use Starry Sky, Flirty Flamingo AND a colour of our choice. For my third colour I chose Balmy Blue. You can make the complete circuit and see all the lovely creations by following the links at the end of each post.

I wanted to use some Designer Series Paper for this challenge, and I found this beautiful pattern in the Les Shoppes pack. Technically, on the colours listed on this pack, it says Night of Navy, not Starry Sky, but as you can see, Starry Sky is a very good match, so I went with it!

I found this cute Balmy Blue Sweet Shop on one of the Les Shoppes pages. Hopefully I haven't cheated too much on the colour challenge, as there are a few other colours on here...but they're in very small amounts! I wanted to add more Flirty Flamingo to the shop front, so I snipped out one of the awnings from one of the other shops and added it to my Sweet Shop (the original awning was Balmy Blue). 

Then, it was simply a matter of arranging all my colours and patterns, until I was happy with the layout. I added a sentiment from Circle Sayings, stamped in Starry Sky. I think this font suits the Les Shoppes vibe quite well. 

I felt that this card didn't need any extra embellishment, so I just shimmered some of the windows and sweet jars using Wink of Stella.

Well, that’s all from me. Click on the button below to move to the next stop:
