Color Throwdown #49

I am extremely blessed this morning, as I am every morning, but today I just feel special. Not only did I get to make a card, but my husband is home for the day and my kids are cleaning their rooms! As soon as I am done posting, I plan to get ready to go and spend the day with the family. My husband will leave late this evening for the month, so it is a blessing to get the day with him.

I made this card for the Color Throwdown with some new stamps that arrived yesterday from Clear Dollar Stamps. These are from Shawne's Patchpal Animal line, and they are so adorable! The Elephant is a single stamp, while the words are from a set. A lot of my friends are having babies, so I need to start stocking up on some baby cards. I didn't have the exact colors that the Throwdown was looking for, but I tried to match them as best I could.
Stamps: Patchpal Elephant, Patchpal Messages (CD Stamps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Cameo Coral
Paper: Bashful Blue, Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Neenah Solar White
Accessories: Copics, oval punch, circle cutter, Inverted Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Swiss Dot embossing folder, sponge, corner rounder
Hopefully, I'll have more to post throughout the month since my man will be out of town. That should leave for some very open evenings, which translates to some good crafting time. I always try to look at the positives of him having to be gone ;) Have a very blessed Friday!
