Wednesday Words

Do you remember this card?  

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.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Diagonal Stripes, An Apple A Day, sentiment from Geometric Style, heart from Design A Tree, Journal It tag & matching die
Inks: SU bermuda bay, real red; Memento, London fog
Embellishments: Habico pearls, opulent asst; Wink of Stella, clear

Just need to say a big THANKS to Color Throwdown for this exciting opportunity and also to all of you for visiting my blog.
