Well it turns out it was a winner at Color Throwdown.
And even more amazing than that I now get to be a guest designer there for today's new challenge!!
Such awesome colours! They were great fun to work with and since there is a school theme to the pictures I went immediately to my apple stamp from Clearly Besotted. I stamped this on card, cut it out and mounted it onto pads so that it would be the focal attraction.
Next I got busy stamping the border strips leaving just enough space between the two diagonal strips to stamp the sentiment separated by tiny hearts.
I then added a horizontal banner using stampin' write pens to ink up the stamp, attached the apple to it and finished off with a trio of pearls. All the hearts and the apple also got the usual sparkle treatment with Wink of Stella.
Oh and the Good Luck is for DT member Lori Tecler to send her my best wishes on her new position as kindergarten teacher.
