*Pink and Brown and Fun*

Another warm day here in Calgary, although it was rather cloudy and windy. Trying to take the garbage to the dumpster at work was hard work in that wind!

A few new things in the store today (that The Scrapbook Pantry in Calgary)... some great glitter and sparkle brads as well as some Jellishments from Doodlebug Designs. We also have a variety of stamps for iris folding by StampNScrapN. We also put out a bunch of new sports themed papers yesterday... everything from bowling to volleyball with many stops in between!!

I created this card after stamping the image and colouring it with markers. I really wanted to play with this image but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I actually coloured the image and it then sat for a few days. Then I cut it out and layered it onto the Bashful Blue layer, and let it sit for a while. I don't know what possessed me to add pink and brown to it, but that's what ended up working.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink; Chocolate Chip
*Images: Stampin' Up! Time Well Spent
*Ink: Palette Black; Stampin' Up! Craft White; Stampin' Up Stampin' Write Markers in Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink
*Tools: Cuttlebug and Rivets Embossing Folder
*Embellishments: Ribbon from a ribbon share; bling
