So this week we are Coloring Down the Lines with a color I love-
Crushed Curry!! Yellow is my favorite color!!!

Welcome on over from Helen's blog! Glad to have you here!!!!!

It's been a whirlwind week! We are leaving for Pennsylvania to attend my son's wedding this weekend! Trying to get everything done is just ca-razy!!!! But I did manage to take some time to make a card for this week's blog hop! I needed the "destressing"!! lol

The color choices are
                          Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo                                          OR                
Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Real Red

I, of course, chose the bright colors! The second group reminds me of like grammar school! Very primary! Me, well, I'd rather live outside the box!

So here's what I came up with!

I'm kinda into revisiting some of my older stamp sets. I love this one-
Postage Due! I sometimes have a tough time trying to figure out what to use it for. But I think it's perfect for this card! I also love how there are coordinating punches with the 1" Square & Postage Stamp punches.
I also pulled out my trusty old Brayer! Not my favorite tool, but I do like the effects it's gives! I used it on the big stamp. First I used the Crushed Curry & brayered the whole image. Then I added & "bumped" some Pumpkin Pie & sorta "edged" it off with the Melon Mambo! I love the way the big flower on the bottom right looks!

Here's a closeup of the actual postage stamps!

I pulled out an old SU button on there for umph! The color isn't retired-just the button!! And oh, btw, the sentiment is from Yippee Skippee stamp set!!! Imagine that?!

Lovin' this Pretty Print Textured Embossing folder straight from the 
Holiday Mini catalog!!! I have no idea what it says! Don't really care! It just looks cool! I sure hope this one hangs around after the catalog retires!!! 

So on that note, hop on over to Liz's blog & see what cool concoction she came up with!

I'm gonna go finish packing! I promise pictures!!!

Happy Stampin'!!
