A Wish, A Color Challenge, and GREAT news!

First things first…..you want the good news, right?!?!  You know that Design Team I was so nervous about??  Well…..I made it! I am so so excited!  So I am now a member of the Just Johanna  Design Team!!!  Yay!  You can read info about it here to see what other fabulous stampers made the cut!  Congratulations to all of you!

Now for the Wish.  There is a little boy named Shane who has a wish for Birthday Cards.  You can read more about him here.  He is a 7 year old boy in Canada that has luekemia.  Please read his story and keep him and his family in your prayers.

In honor of his wish, I chose a little boy color combo in case you wanted to use this week’s challenge to make a card for him!  I actually sent him a different card earlier (this one was my brother’s birthday card!), but this combo is great for little guys (or big guy’s since my brother is 28!)


So CC113 is Taken with Teal, Marigold Morning and Cool Carribean.   I used Big Pieces, Little Pieces and Think Big.  I stamped them on a white panel and layered that on a Taken With Teal panel where I pierced a zig zag pattern along the top edge.  I mounted that with dimensionals on a cool carribean card base.  The ribbon was tied around the card by using my xacto knife to cut a slit along the fold of the card and the ribbon was threaded through.  I then stamped the letters on white cardstock and cut them out.  The ‘wish’ stamp was stamped on white, punched out and mounted on taken with teal to make it pop more.  The ‘i’ was stamped in marigold morning and cut out.  I ran the Taken With Teal marker around it because it was so light it wasn’t standing out from the card.  They are all mounted with dimensionals.  That’s it!

Don’t forget to comment for the Blog Goody!  I will draw a winner this evening using the random number generator!

    Congratulations on being chosen for the design team!

    I really like this card. I never would have thought about using the Marigold Morning with those 2 colors, but I really like the way they look together. Thanks for another fantastic idea!

  • Congrats Em on your new “job”! I love your blog and all your work. How on earth did you get the multi colors on the Big and Little Pieces since there are no markers in Marigold and Cool Carribean? Did you use a sponge dauber? Anyway great card. Always look forward to your posts.
