Color Inspiration #57 - You Lift Me Up!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Kristina has a color inspiration challenge (#57) up on her blog that has such a yummy grouping of colors! I couldn't wait to play along :)

I used the Love Everywhere stamp set that has this super cute little balloon (I popped the heart out with some dimensionals) and the sentiment is from the Cuppie Love Scenes stamp set - both from the newest release from Taylored Expressions. This card was super quick to make and I had so much fun making it :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism cardstock and Snow White cardstock
Stamps: Love Everywhere and Cuppie Love Scenes from Taylored Expressions
Ink: LadyBug red from Memento
Accessories: Spellbinders, cuttlebug embossing, liquid pearls, Sakura gel pen, chalk for background, ribbon from stash, EK Success punch, pearls from Kaiser, dimensionals, spica glitter pen.

What an awesome grouping of colors. Kristina got her inspiration from the Joel DewberryCollection - you can read more about it on her blog. The mustard color is the basket for the balloon, the saffron color is in the strip and the yellow behind the balloon, the coral is the background for the card (and the red and blue are in the strip of paper and balloon).

I am so happy its Friday! Hope that you have a great weekend!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
Hugs!
Sankari :)
