CC413 Color Challenge

What a weekend!! It flew by~  Saturday we went to my brother's to celebrate his daughter Kaia's birthday. She turned 3 and is the cutest thing ever...the theme was 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'. Her momma is like me...and crafty!! Here are a few pictures..and she too 'thanks' Pinterest for inspiration!!

I made her an album instead of card to remember her special day:

This was made using a retired stamp set called Bugs & Kisses. This photo is the book, which I had in a cello bag, topped with the tag...perfect stamp set to use right??

Sadly I spent the remaining part of the weekend in bed..sick!! Recently I was thinking about just how lucky I have been...kept hearing about the 'terrible' flu going around and it seriously made me want to crawl into a hole and hide!! The kids have had a few runny noses here and there..but nothing too serious. So today..I decided to 'feel' better and stamp!
Off to www.splitcoaststampers.com I went!

Today's Color Challenge is called CC413 'A White Lucky Tangerine'. You are to use Whisper White, Tangerine Tango and Lucky Limeade and my first thought was the flag for Ireland~ how could you not??

Well... I grabbed the colors and the new single stamp called Lucky Day (129177 W). Then I spent way too much time staring at the card stock and waiting for the 'magic' to happen.
No such luck...'Luck O' the Irish'?? I think not..at least for today anyway.

Instead of using Whisper White, I decided to use Very Vanilla (close enough!!). That would allow me to use a neutral DSP...my favorite First Edition Specialty DSP (121878).  I then put back the Lucky Day stamp and grabbed the new Swallowtail stamp (129213 W, 129216 C). I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stamp...I was excited when Stampin' Up! came out with the Sunflower HUGE background stamp...and this one is just as beautiful!!!

Stamp Set: Swallowtail (129213 W, 129216 C), Kindness Matters (122900 W, 122902 C)
Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Versamark
