Coloring Down the Lines - Crumb Cake

Good Day, everyone!  It's another great challenge for Coloring Down the Lines.  This week's challenge was to come up with something using the following color combinations:  Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green or Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, and Not Quite Navy.  I started to make a card, then quickly realized I just couldn't make it work.  So, I reverted to another stamp set - one that I'm loving, and went with it.  I chose the first color combo to work with ... and I'm rather pleased with the outcome.  I'm sure Carol never has those blimp moments when she's designing ... it just doesn't appear that way, does it?  Anyway, here's my submission for the blog hop this week:

Card Recipe:
Paper:  whisper white, garden green
Ink:  garden green, crumb cake, cajun craze
Stamp Sets:  summer silhouettes, loving thoughts
Accessories:  basic pearls

The card was easy to make, and not a lot of accessories, but just enough to give it that special touch.  I saw a card similar to this that was made by Debra Corson, so thank you Debra for your inspiration.

Now, I bet you can't wait to hop on over to check out Joni's masterpiece.  It's so nice to see what everyone comes up with each week, as there's so much to work with and we shall never run out of ideas!  Happy Stamping!


  1. OH< MY MY MY, Helen! This is just beyond gorgeous! I will have to make this, but I don't think it will compare to yours. So beautiful, and cheery! Thanks Hugs

  2. Very pretty, Helen. I love the way you put the flower in the oval, and the pop of color is just beautiful. Nice. Hugs.

  3. I love when plan B works out "B"eautifully! I like how the oval framelit in Crumb Cake is used as a neutral on the white and then the flowers just POP off the page.
    Hugs, Laura
