Fab Friday Color Challenge: Bootiful Occasions

Happy Wednesday friends!  It's going to be another hot and humid day (summer has definitely arrived) so I hope you're able to stay cool.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for this weeks Fab Friday Color challenge and these bright, cheery, In Colors are perfect for a hot day, they remind me of ice cream.  I started with a Baked Brown Sugar cardbase and then added a layer of Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Mosaic Madness Embossing Folder.  I used my Crisp Cantaloupe ink and a sponge dauber to lightly add ink to the raised part of the embossed design so it really stands out.  Next I added a piece of Coastal Cabana designer series paper from the 2013-2015 In Color Paper stack that I  punched along the edge with the scallop border punch.  For lots of fun and dimension I added three layers of the new In Color Stretch Ruffle Ribbon, in Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, and Pistachio Pudding (this ribbon is so soft and awesome). 

For the main stamped image I used the Bootiful Occasions stamp set (this rain boot is so cute!)  I stamped it in Baked Brown Sugar and then colored in the boot with Stampin' Write Markers.  This piece was matted on a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock before attaching it to the card with dimensionals.
I don't normally use this many different colors on a card but I love how these all compliment each other so well and they're so fresh.  I'll definitely be using these colors in a lot more projects in the future so I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  If you want further inspiration with these colors hop on over to the Fab Friday blog site and check out the projects from the design team and other fabulous stampers participating in the challenge.
