Loads of Love

Welcome!  Since we have a hurricane coming up the coast this weekend, I wanted to post a card I made before the electricity goes out.  However, we  hardly ever  loose electricity during a storm; we seem to always loose it on a normal day with nothing special going on in the weather department! It will be interesting to see what happens with this storm.  I think New York will be hit hard, but by the time it makes it's way to Boston, it should die down, but we'll see!

For todays card I started with sketch # 232 from CPS and the colors came from The Play Date Cafe PDCC96 based on this week's  color combination of mint, ivory and coral.

Here is the card I created:

I love this little Ippity stamp set titled Loads of Love and couldn't wait to make a card using this set.    I stamped the image on watercolor paper and used watercolor paints to color the image.  Some buttons, a flower and twine finished off the card.  I wasn't sure about using only three colors on this card but I think the limited color combination worked. 

Thanks so much for stopping  by and if you live on the east coast, keep safe!
