color challenge 159 and the candyburglar

I just love these colors together! What a great combo!! I went with a clean and simple design, and I just love the outcome!
I stamped the branch in basic grey, and then again in sky and cut the leaves out and glued them onto the circle.

Below....this is the result of leaving my daughter alone while cleaning my office yesterday~I did manage to find the stamp set I had misplaced, and I still have a lot of organizing to do, but I have a great start. I will work some more after I pick up the candy burglar from preschool this afternoon. Sheesh.

I can't leave her alone for a minute with her Easter basket. I found it hidden in a fort they had built under some blankets in the tv room.

off to hide the remainder of the candy!

stamps: spring solitude
CS: Black, sky, Basic grey, Shimmery White
Inks: Sky, Basic Grey
access: hph in pewter, basic grey taffeta, dimensionals, paper piercing tool, punches- all SU!
Pin It Now!
