It's a beautiful day!

What a lovely day to wake up to. The sun is shining and the weather is great. Stormy weather is in the forecast for the rest of the week, but for now, I'm soaking up the sun!

I spent some time last night playing with my newest WoodwareUSA stamps that arrived in my mailbox yesterday. I plan on making several more creations with them this week. Are you following this weeks challenge at the WoodwareUSA blog??? Every week, the Woodware Design team is hosting a fun challenge. This week's challenge is a color challenge:
Create something using the colors:
Kraft, Red, and Teal
Such a delicious color combo right? I'll be posting color challenge creations all this week on my blog and will close out the week on the WoodwareUSA blog by posting my final color creation.

I have been admiring many cards on blogs and galleries that have displayed the stippling of blues and teals to create a wonderful background to images and I decided to try making a "swoosh" of stippling on this card. I wanted to create something that would trail away from the skateboard. Tons of colors were used to create the effect. After assembling the card, popping the pooch off the page and adding ribbon, I wanted a sentiment that would work well with the theme of the card. I found the perfect sentiment in my new Wizardry set. I love the ability to bend and curve my clear sentiment stamps to fit my needs and this sentiment works so well, don't you think??? After stamping the sentiment, I HAD to add some sparkly stickles, because nothing's really magical without sparkles right??? HEE HEE!

Crafty Supplies Used:

Stamps: WoodwareUSA: A Dog's Life, Wizardry (sentiment), Large Small Sentiments (hello stamped repeatedly on the red cardstock with Ranger Clear Resist ink)
Ink: Memento Black, Ranger Clear Resist, Copics (too many to list)
Paper: Kraft, Teal, Red cardstock by The Paper Company
Ribbon: May Arts
Diamond Stickles, Glossy Accents (nose, tag and wheels), Pop Dots.

Be back tomorrow with another color creation!
