Finally Time to Stamp!


I can't believe that it's been almost a month since I've been able to stamp. I needed a birthday card so I'm glad I finally got the chance to create something!
I used the Splitcoast Sketch#481 here along with the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge#296 here. The challenge was a color combo of Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point and Smoky Slate.

Happy Hour is the stamp set with some Brights DSP Stack.

Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Happy Hour
Papers: WW, Smoky Slate, Pacific Point, Summer Starfruit and Brights DSP Stack
Inks: Smoky Slate, Pacific Point and Summer Starfruit
Accessories: Deco Labels Framelit, Brights Candy Brads, Stampin dimensionals, Stamp-a-ma-jig
