I'LL MISS YOU, DOODLE THIS!


Today's card ... (listen to me ... I post original designs four days in a row and act like I'm a regular daily poster!) ... uses Stacey Schafer's Jewelry Color Inspiration #40 based on this Springtime Garden Bracelet with the colors of Garden Green, Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, and Whisper White. Such a fun colors combo! I can't tell you the last time I used Garden Green! I'm ashamed to say that I've never played along with Stacey's Jewelry Inspired Challenges but have always admired them and followed along ... what a great concept!

I also used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #90 with the soon-to-be-retired stamp set, Doodle This. This is probably the stamp set on the retiring list that I will miss the most. Click HERE to view the many cards I've made and/or designed with this stamp set over the years.


The large Doodle This flower image is stamped in Basic Black onto Pretty In Pink Prints DP three times, cut out, then staggered on top of each other. I used the handle of a paper piercer to curl the petals for depth.

I am in the same boat, I am not sure when the last time I used Garden Green was either! That is why I love playing along with Stacey's inspiration's, because she always have such great colors!
