Sunshine Love


There's an awful lot of pink and purple going on in Market Street Stamps' Paint the Town Colour Challenge.  Between the colours and the inspiration photo all I could think of was flowers.  However, I have no MSS flowers.  I have a number of their background stamps but only one set of stamps. (Note to self:  Remedy this situation!)  So working with the Here Comes the Sun background and the Hippie Chic set I came up with this.  Funnily enough, when I then went over to the MSS blog I found that Sarah had created a card with the same two stamp sets!  Go figure...


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pale Pink Bazzill Basics, (Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Here Comes the Sun background, Sentiment from Hippie Chic) Market Street Stamps
Inks:  (Blushing Bride, Certainly Celery) Stampin' Up
Die:  (Skittle De Do alphabet) Sizzix

Fab funky design Jen! (even without the flowers) My experience is that no excuse is needed to buy new stamps... works for me!

I love this sun stamp...I never would have thought to stamp it in pink, and I {heart} it :)

I just love this sun stamped background image. I need to add that to my wish list.

A long time ago you asked where I got the scrabble tile stickers that I use often. I picked them up at Michael's a while back. I am sorry that it has taken me so long to respond. I only remember after I publish my comments. LOL!
