This week a friend ask me to make her grandson
Cy's 1st birthday invitations, so I made these diorama cards. Happy Birthday Cy!
I used certainly celery for the outside, retired
buckaroo blue for the middle section and used Kraft for the 3rd layer( whisper white to stamp the elephant and giraffe). The 1st opening was punched using the large tag punch and the inside was punched with the small tag.

Have a great Labor day weekend! Cindy

My favorite color combination this week!

As I am getting ready to work on stamp camp
ideas I have found a color combination that I really like, chocolate chip and pink pirouette. I found this combination worked well for our elegant theme, and
for making cards. This pale pink may be my neutral in-color this year, I really like it with chocolate chip, riding hood red, and kiwi kiss so far.

This is a reminder- stamp camp registration forms are due on Friday August 22nd.
