Hand Stamped Sentiments #96 - color challenge

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments, we are asking you lovely crafters to create any card, 3D project or scrapbook page using all or some of the colors listed below: 
Blushing Bride, Pool Party, Pear Pizazz and Real Red

I started off with a piece of Blushing Bride card stock and instead of a regular fold, I decided to try a trifold card...therefore the front of my card is only adhered to the left fold, so the card can be opened. Truthfully, I was pretty stumped when I saw the colors but as I perused my stamps, I spotted these little shoes and knew it would work! Of course this set wouldn't be complete without a curtain, so I fashioned a paper one out of a piece of Pool Party DSP. After running it through my crimper a few times I continued to roll the paper in my hands to break the fibers a bit, to make it more forgiving when I was adhering it to my cardstock. Sticky Strip works wonders for pleats and other items you don't want falling off of your card. I should really take stock in the company since I go through so much of it, haha!

I sponged the Pear Pizzazz platform with the same colored ink to give it more of a stomped on look and of course you can't give a graduate a card without tucking a little congratulatory gift inside, so a wee little pocket for money, a gift card or BOTH!

Head on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what the Design Team has whipped up for you and link up to this week's post... We can't wait to see your lovely creations!
