So we are FINALLY back to the 3-color challenges!! While the 2-color ones were great for stretching the creativity, it's soooo much easier to work with the 3 colors!!!

So welcome over from Helen's blog once again!! I hope you're enjoying your day hopping around! I know you love her work especially!!

We are now working with the neutral colors! The challenge this week was Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red & Not Quite Navy, or Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze & Garden Green! I chose the former for the main reason that 2 of the colors are retiring! I want to use them as much as possible now before they are gone for good! Especially the Not Quite Navy! I love that color!

So here's my card. I designed it for a friend who just had open heart surgery. She is doing quite well tho. I just wanted her to know that I was thinking about her!

 I also used one of our retiring Big Shot dies-the Scallop Envelope. I'm really bummed about that one!!! I totally love that die!!! I use it often! The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings embosslit! 

All the DSP is from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack-also retired! Ugh!  But thank goodness that the Silver Dazzling Details is sticking around!!! Ya, love the bling!!! lol

Sassy Salutations rounds out the sentiment perfectly! Kinda fun. I'm not one to send "formal" or fancy cards! I'm kind of a fun-luvin' kinda gal!!! Note the bling! lol

So now head on over to Laura's blog! I know her creation is awesome!!! I'm heading over there now to check it out!!!

Until next week!!! Don't forget to order your retired products NOW while they last!!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!
