Create with Connie and Mary: Kidoodles

Good morning friends!  While a few days ago we were talking about how chilly it is here and now the heat and humidity has arrived, I'm really looking forward to not being cold.  We only have a few more days left in the Spring Catalog and Annual Catalog so I decided to use this weeks Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge to highlight some of the items that will soon be going away.  I used the Sunshine and Sprinkles designer series paper as the color inspiration for this card and this paper will only be available through Friday so you need to make sure you have some of this in your crafting stash.  The cardbase is Marina Mist and then I added a piece of Going Gray and then the DSP.
For the flag accent I used another pattern in the same paper pack before adding a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I stamped with the Kidoodles stamp set (this is one of my all time favorites which is also retiring, this set will definitely not be leaving the studio).  I used Stampin' Write markers to color in the image and the colors are from the DSP.  The final touch was to add a piece of Melon Mambo 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.
This card is so simple and cute, I love how there are so many patterns that your eye is drawn to the stamped image as it's set off on the solid white layer.  I've been having lots of fun using some of the retiring supplies and while I'm sad that some of them are leaving there are lots of fabulous new items coming that I can't wait to have fun with and show you.
Happy stamping,

Pin It!
