365 Cards Day 358

Welcome to the Monday Challenge at 365 Cards! Pam gave us a color challenge today. And you know how she loves to throw crazy colors at us. She used to call this "Wacky Color Wednesday" and I am not sure WHY she moved it to Monday! {grin} Here is the scheme: purple, yellow/cream, orange, red, lime green.

Here is my card. I used the fabbie new My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose papers. This one is called Mabel. Funny - my mom's middle name and my one sister-in-law's first name is Stella. My paternal grandmother was called Mabel! Is that funny or what??! Plus my Cyber BFF is called Rose! {waves to Rose} So you know I HAD to buy these papers!

I got all the colors in there. Whew! The purple was hard, but the striped paper has a bit of purple, so I added some purple card stock. {neener neener, Pam!} 365 Cards does have a sponsor this week - Guylou's Inimitability Digistamps. I did not use one of their images, but make sure you go check them out!

The sentiment image is from Our Daily Bread Designs. This one is from Scripture Collection 3. I just got 4 new sets of stamps from ODBD and I love them! They are just lovely! Naturally I cut the circles with my Spellbinders dies. My other inspiration came from a sketch I saw on the Verve Stamps blog.

Now for some bad news... Next Monday will be my LAST post with 365 Cards Challenge Blog. I am stepping down from the team after 2 years! I have loved being part of the 365 Card girls. They are a fun group and Pam always makes sure we have interesting challenges. I will miss being part of this very unique blog. I wish Pam and the crew all the best!

I am entering this into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show who asked for stripes.
