Saltbox Color Challenge

Hey! Happy Monday!

Today there's a Saltbox Studio color challenge to use Swiss Red and Cabana Blue notecards with any Saltbox Studio images. I'll have to admit that I didn't own any Saltbox Studio stamps before this weekend, but I picked up a few and am completely LOVING them!! So cute. I had several stamp sets in my hand and had to put a couple back so I didn't spend way too much!!

Here's what I made for the challenge:

I used the Celebration Companion set with the cute little mouse and A Basket Celebration set for the basket full of cupcakes (I'm pretty sure they were meant to be muffins, but I couldn't resist!) After all the talk on the A Muse Lounge about Koh-i-Noor pencils I gave in and picked some of those up too. I played around with them on this card using Gamsol to blend them. I also used Rosie's Roadshow Cloud stencil for the sky and sponged around the edges of the card to create the grass and blue edges around the rest.

Here's a link to the A Muse creative team gals that made samples for this challenge as well:

I hope you have a fabulous week!

Rhonda, Please, please tell me what punch you used on this card!! I fell in love with it; simple, clean lines. This is where less is so much more.
