Reverse Confetti August Blog Hop!

Happy Day 'Fetti Fans!   Welcome to the August Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!  You have hopped to me from the very talented Amy Kolling's blog!   

 This month all the designers are using the theme "Color Me Mine".   We are picking 2-4 color combinations that we love and sharing them with you.    For my theme I am using the color combination of Flamingo, Blueberry and with a little bit of Stone!   I loved looking over all the colors available and pairing different ones together.  I came up with several combinations and this was one of my favorite combos!  

I started by die cutting Premier Polar White cardstock with the Pierced Round Top Layer and stamped with one of the diamond pattern from Elemental Stripes stamp set in Blueberry ink.   I also stamped a sentiment from the Circle Wishes stamp set with Blueberry ink and die cut with the coordinating Confetti Cut.   I used both of the mouse images from the Mouse Mail stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.   I used similar Copic colors to the Flamingo and Stone ink (R30, R32, W00, WC3).   

The main card panel was made with Flamingo cardstock and topped with more Flamingo cardstock die cut with the Squared Off Cover Panel.  I used foam tape to lift it off the card base.   I die cut a smaller piece of Stone card stock with the edge of the Round Top Tag and used the scalloped edge to add a little detail to the panel.   I then added a heart die cut from the Stamped Note Confetti Cut set in Flamingo cardstock and covered with my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush and some glossy accents. 

I really loved the color combo for for this card and really happy with how it turned out.   It is a perfect card to share happiness with a friend!     

Next up on the hop is the wonderful Heather Pulvirenti!
