Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge

Well it's Friday, and I am feeling pretty encouraged for so many reasons today.  I woke up this morning to find out that I had actually won some blog candy.  I  was shocked!  Merry had been offering some wonderful ribbon blog candy from I {heart} Papers.  Thanks again, Merry!

Also, from a homeschoolers perspective, this has been an incredibly productive day.  We've been reading a book about WWII, working with perimeters, and working with prefixes just to name a few things we've dealt with today.  Today is a day that everyone seems to just get it.  Maybe I'm just documenting it so that on the one day they don't get it, I can remember that there are days in which they do get it.  {lol}  

During their math test, I crept off to my craft cave to make this weekend's Clear Dollar Color Challenge over at Papercraftplanet.  This weekend's hostess was the very talented and inspiring Linda!  Her challenge was to use the colors Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, Green Galore, and an optional White neutral.  I used two stamp sets from this months releases.  The first was the April Stamp of the Month, Silhouette Wishes, which is free when you order $50 worth of products over at Clear Dollar Stamps.  The other was the Pickett Fence stamp that is so completely versatile and only $3.99.  There is obviously a lot of white on my card, but I think I'm really starting to like that look.  
Stamps:  Silhouette Wishes, Pickett Fence (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Green Galore, Appricot Appeal
Paper:  Whisper White, Barely Banana, Green Galore, Baja Breeze
Accessories:  Birds & Swirls embossing folder, Green Galore marker, silver hodgepodge, Stampin' Dimensionals
