4 Crafty Chicks....4 Colors!

Welcome back for another installment of crafting FUN from the 4 Crafty Chicks! This week's challenge "Hostess-with-the-mostess" is Melissa, and she chose a bright, cheery color combo for all of us to play with!

I went on a search for "just the right sketch" to go along with my stamp set that I chose and I finally found it over at Inspirational Card Sketches:

...and here's what I came up with using both challenges:

Stamps: Party This Way, Crazy for Cupcakes, Itty Bitty Bits; Paper: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight; Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Basic Black; Accessories: scissors, dimensionals, perfect dots embossing folder
The stamp set, Party This Way, was a gift I received from Stampin' Up! for achieving $20K in sales last year! Woot! Woot! I was so happy to receive it, I *had* to make a card with it right away! Thanks for stopping in for our 2nd challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks and I am super dooper excited to see what y'all come up with using these awesome colors! Please put a link to your creation back at 4 Crafty Chicks blog for your chance at the "Golden Egg" badge!
For more inspiration using these colors, please check out the other "Chicks" blogs (right-hand sidebar) and leave each of them some luvin's :) Happy crafting!
