Stampin' Celebration 112

Happy Labor Day my American friends!  Hope you are enjoying the unofficial last weekend of summer.   It's supposed to be raining here, but we might still BBQ on the covered patio.  ;)


There is a new challenge today at Stampin' Celebration.  The colors in this remind of baby boys and teddy bears.  I struggled with what stamp set to use for this though.  I try to use Stampin' UP! only for these challenges, so that is what made it a little more challenging than it needed to be.  Plus I am in full on World Cardmaking Day and Christmas card prep for some upcoming projects and my brain didn't want to focus on this fantastic collage.  

Finally I decided to just start pulling out some SU stamps.  The first one that caught my eye was the burlap background from You've Got This.  I knew I wanted a Crumb Cake and Marina Mist combo, so I pulled it out and saw the flower image.  For some reason it remind me of the circles and medallions in the inspiration photo and the card began to take shape in my mind.

I wanted to do watercoloring on this card, but I've been doing a lot of that lately and didn't want to bore you with the same ol' thing, so instead I pulled out my trusty blender pen.  Unfortunately it was pretty dry, but I managed to make this card work.
