Just Us Girls #76 - Color Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and we have Paper Makeup Stamps as our sponsor. Basic Grey's Hopscotch paper was my inspiration for this pretty color combination. Here's what I created with them.
Since I have been a design team member of PMS since almost it's inception, I have quite the collection of stamps from them! I wanted to use something that hasn't gotten a lot of love. So I settled on this bird house image from the Home Matters set. (This set comes in rubber and digi form, with a couple of more images in the digi set.) I used the Clean & Simple FTL132 layout for my card. On the tallest bird house, I had to extend the pole with a black marker. I colored the images with copic markers and added some star dust stickles. I added the ribbon, Prima burlap flower, and flower-shaped button tied with some floss. The background looked a little bare, so I added the soft clouds with some soft sky ink.

The sentiment is from the Tweet Things set, also from PMS. It actually says "Happy Bird-Day to you", but it didn't all fit, so I only inked up the part I wanted (love that option!).

Paper Makeup Stamps is offering a $20 gift certificate to one random winner over on the JUGs blog. You can see what the design team has done with the PMS images on the JUGs blog...fabulous designs! I hope to see your creation there!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
