Sister's Purse Color Challenge #28 & KWCI #50

It is such a coincidence that my colors for my "Sister's Purse Color Challenge" #28 are exactly the same colors (plus and splash of brown) that Kristina Werner has for her 50th Color Inspiration. I so lucked out this week!! This week's purse is a reusable fold-up grocery bag - so not really a purse, but a bag. I know I am stretching it a bit. It really is quite large for a fold-up bag and can be yours for only $7.99. You can find this adorable bag on or HERE for a direct link. 

Colors for my challenge to be used this week:
Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Yo Yo Yellow and Whisper White

You can add a neutral if you like, but it's not necessary. 

Like I said, I found it to be a huge coincidence that my colors and the ones Kristina Werner picked  for her challenge were alike. She did have a brown listed so I went ahead and added a touch to my card, but it is mostly the colors for my challenge. 

I used the cute little Finishing Touch stamp and my Stamp-a-ma-jig to make the "faux" designer paper as the main image. I really didn't have a plan for the pattern, it just kind of happened and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. Don't you just love when that happens. I added the ribbon and the scallop oval sentiment to finish it off. Enjoy!!

You can find my "Fancy Congrats" card on SCS - HERE.

Stamps: SU Congrats and Finishing Touch Stamp
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise
Inks: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Yo Yo Yellow
Accessories: Scallop Oval and Oval Punches, Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon, Red Snaps, Dimensionals and adhesive

* * Becky had sent me a stack of cards and I have yet to show them to you - I will soon, I promise. I think that she is up to date on all of the past challenges, but I just found out that she broke her wrist and may be delayed on the next few challenges. What a bummer - right when she found her mojo!?! * *

Love the way you did the background. It looks like DSP! great job! You've also given me another idea for ways to use my stamp-a-ma-jig.

Very elegant and pretty! Way to get those stamps lined up- I'm afraid I'm helplessly flawed in lining stuff up!
