{Kristina's 50th color inspiration}

OK---that title might imply that I actually KNOW Kristina Werner and am on a first name basis with her....I don't, and I'm not. But it makes for a better title, don't you think? *snort*

Kristina Werner's 50th Color Inspiration went up and I got to play! I'm so excited to get to do another one! Since this is her 50th, she's giving away some amazing gifts. You should check it out and get a card made yourself.

OK---onto the card--I used a layout that I love---again, it uses the top note die from Stampin' Up! This card came together quickly, I added a little bling and it was finished. I started with a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I used white cardstock from Papertrey ink and stamped the umbrella in Summer Sunrise and Pure Poppy. I stamped it again and cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I layered that on some Pure Poppy cardstock and then all of that on a Dark Chocolate Top Note cut out. I tied the image with some twill and added some random rhinestones from Taylored Expressions. I put a strip of Friends 'Til the End patterned paper across the bottom and added a sentiment from the set. I had to use more buttons---I love the buttons. These are from a Foof-a-la fall button bag.

I hope you enjoy---check out Kristina's challenge---there are some great entries there!

Have a great day~
