Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 196 and Color Throwdown 134

I've got three weddings to go to this summer so this morning I got up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to head on over to a local shopping mall to see if I could get some dresses to wear.  Anyone who knows me knows that "morning" and "bright-eyed and bushy tailed" do NOT go together.  But I did it and my efforts were rewarded because I managed to get something to wear to each wedding.

So, it was early afternoon before I wandered into my stamp room and contemplated the Stamping 411 sketch challenge and the Color Throwdown color challenge.

My retired Island Oasis designer paper was calling to me to stop neglecting it, so I gathered it up with its companion stamp set, Tropical Party, and got to work.


After I was all done and had taken the photo I realized that I forgot the sentiment!  I hate when that happens!  Oh well.  It will have to stay that way for now and maybe I'll add one later.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today! Pin It Now!

Like the way you left a white space instead of adding a length of ribbon and what fabulous bright colours! I can't believe you didn't show us pics of your wedding outfits Jen!
