My Time Color Challenge

So it's Saturday and that means another My Time to Create Challenge. Today is a color challenge and these are the colors Lauren gave us for this challenge.
She gave us another challenge to go along with this...to use the Weiman Wranglers digi stamp set created by
Pink Cat Studio. It's a charity stamp set called the Weiman Wranglers with all proceeds going to the Make-a-Wish foundation in memory of Ethan Weiman. (Over $1,400 has been raised so far!) Ethan left behind a sister, Ava, who was his best friend. These images represent Ethan and Ava. You can read this post for more information. Here's my card for this challenge. Tracy Cuccia showed us how to place these two images side-by-side and create an upside down heart with the ends of the balloon strings. Cool, huh? I just love this sentiment from SU's Always...perfect for this card! I used SU's retired Outlaw dp and some jute ribbon. I ran some twine through the holes on the buttons, in keeping with the rustic theme.

Stop by the My Time DT blogs to see what they did with this set. Alicia (My Time DT member and Ethan's mom) even tried her hand at this set to make a memory book.


If you play our challenge, please upload your direct post to Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog. If you post to SCS/PCP, please use the code MTCC03. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!
