color cue challenge #7

Renos are mostly done, the house is up for sale, and finally we have some "free" time! I hope there's some summer left to enjoy! :)

I decided to come back to crafting with (surprise!) a challenge. For some reason I was really drawn to this colour combo in the ColorCue challenge on the Wplus9 blog.

I liked it so much I have made a few cards! The first set of cards was made with Papertrey Ink paper and Wplus9 stamps, woodgrain silhouettes.
They are fairly simple, but I guess that's how I roll!

I got so excited about the colours and decided to make another one. I used Papertrey Ink's Up Up and Away set and the background paper is from a digital paper kit from Two Peas by Katherin Teague called Into the Woods.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE balloons! I remember going to watch the balloon festival in Calgary when I was a kid. There was a dinosaur one (T-Rex I think!) that I always would look for, so there was no way I wasn't going to be buying this set! I'm glad I finally got to ink it up.
Thanks for looking, I hope it's a good day.
