Welcome to another Coloring Down the Lines challenge!! If you are hopping over from Helen's blog I know I have a tough act to follow!!! Glad you're here!

So this week's color choices were coastal cabana, calypso coral, smoky slate
coastal cabana, pumpkin pie, & crushed curry.  Now I love this new Coastal Cabana color. Just a bit darker than Pool Party, which is an all-time fave of mine!

I chose the latter because it seemed more summery. Altho either one would work!

I'm doubling up on challenges this week again! I've decided to use this week's Mojo Monday 299 sketch as my design base. I'll explain why later!  

So first, the card!

And here's the sketch!

I combined the 2 shapes into one-put the circle shape on the square shape! So this is the reason I decided to double up on challenges. I've been dying to just play around with my new Magnetic Platform for my Big Shot! I also got the new Circle Collection & Square Collection Framelits from the new catalog! I needed an excuse to break them out as I've been working so hard on all  my convention swaps! I thought this design worked great for those framelits! Thus, this card!

I used my trusty Betsy's Blossoms stamp set for the flowers, and I used the Best of Greetings Anniversary set for the greeting. That is rapidly becoming my go-to stamp set!!! So versatile!!  

I happened to have some 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Pumpkin Pie, so I thought that would look cool!

Look at how the Bojo Blossoms punch helped make this flower "bouquet"!

It was my very first use of my Brights Candy Dots! Love those little guys!!  

So all in all, it was supposed to be a summery card! I think the colors worked!

But check out the Magnetic Platform!!!

 So it's standing on its side here! The first pic is just the platform. The second has 2 of the Circle Collection Framelits "stuck" to it! That magnet is powerful!!!!! It works sooooo well!!! I highly recommend it!  If you're a Framelits junkie, and who isn't-ya just gotta have one!!! You can find it HERE!! Well worth the price!

Now go on hoppin' over to Liz's blog & see what she did with this week's colors! Always a beautiful creation awaits you when you arrive there!!! Tell her I'll be right over!!!

Until next time!
Happy Stampin'!!
