Simply Stampin Challenge Week 2

Good morning folks, its Friday again and the last week day of the school holidays!!!!

One boy is still in bed and one is at his friends house where he stayed last night so I am doing some peaceful blogging this morning!!

I am entering the Simply Stampin Challenge this week to support my girlies on the DT. This was a bit harder this week, a colour challenge which I think has pushed people out of their comfort zones which is good!

Wild Wasabi, Bravo Burgundy, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla! And here is my effort! This card was cased from a lovely card my downline Angela sent me!!

I have embossed the Pink Pirouette card with the Vintage Wallpaper folder on both the background and the owls chest
The sentiment is from Party this Way stamped into the Four Frames

Hope you like it! Got to dash to pick my little one up!
