Welcome on over from Helen's blog! I know you enjoyed her design! So colorful this week!
We are working down our challenge to the new catalog colors!! This week includes colors that were/are current!!! Gotta love gray! It's the new black so they say! lol  I'm also piggy-backing the SUO challenge this week!!!
So this week's challenge is Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Old Olive OR Basic Gray, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie
I really like how the first group make me think summer! Well Melon Mambo always makes me think summer!!! 
I actually did 2 different cards for this week! I had one done, but then I needed a wedding card so decided to go non-traditional with that! Scroll down for that SUO Wedding Card challenge!!!

So here's the first this week's card:

I had some fun with my Secret Garden stamp set and Framelits!!! I had some Melon Mambo Embossing Powder so had to use that too! 
I used the "stamping off" technique to stamp on the Whisper White. I didn't want the flowers to be too gray! I think it gives a kind of soft affect! It's just  pretty all-occasion card!

No matter what setting I took this photo on the gray looks somewhat purple!!! It totally isn't in real life!!! Interesting!

I can't wait to get my new Magnetic Platform! It's on its way!!! It should make placement for all my Framelits so much easier!!
Here's a really cool video that shows how to use it:

Now, here's the 2nd this week's card:

I made a 5 1/2" square card because I wasn't mailing it! I used the May Birthday stamp set-it's all babies, weddings & anniversaries! A very versatile set!!! 
These colors actually make a pretty wedding card!!!  
Here's a couple of close ups-first of the image, then second of the Clay Button I made with my new molds & clay!!! First one I've used on a card!!

So hope you like all the fun colors this week!!!

Head on back to our fearless leader Robbie's blog & have a great time enjoying her beautiful design!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!
