Good Wednesday Morning!

Can you believe it's Wednesday? Oh my goodness, this week is flying by and I still have a few things to do before we leave for vacation....like get dog food for Snickers, fish tablets so the fish don't starve, mow the lawn, pack, clean the house....BUT I always make time to stamp! Yah!
I made this card for the Colour Challenge on SCS.
Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive and Taken with Teal.
When I first heard the colours, it freaked me out. They look pretty together but I wasn't sure I could pull it off. I think I did okay though. What do you think?

I've used the Sweet Treats set from ATS. I love this little bear...so cute!

I had to laugh because I started my blog post the exact same way yesterday with not thinking I could pull these colors off in a card. You did a fabulous job with them! I still love Live Your Dream.

Christine has been doing an amazing job with the last few releases. Your suspension card is just too cute.

Yeah...the ATS stuff reminds me of the Paper Pretties stuff...uh-huh.... I like the eggplant and green together - that looks great. There was one crazy color combo the other day that I didn't care for - but this one works!
