Party Time - Stampin' Up! Awesome Otters

   Only a few days left to take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration freebies!  Monday is the last day to order $50 (or more!) and earn free stamps and/or designer series papers.  Don't miss out!  Place your order soon!  My store link is in the sidebar if you are looking for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

  I'm using one of the free stamp sets; Awesome Otters on my card today.  While the otters are super cute I decided to just use the party hat today.  I combined a sketch challenge and a color challenge.  The layout comes from CAS Colours & Sketches and the fun colors from Color Throwdown.  

  I have to tell you this color combo really threw me for a loop.  I must have tried 10 different green combinations to match the challenge graphic and I am still not quite satisfied that any of them were the right shade!  This was as close as I could get I guess!  Either way I have fun with both the colors and layout.  A four square layout is always perfect to show off a smaller stamp and there is something so pleasing about the nice crisp balance of a repeated image.

  I just stamped the party hats in Basic Gray then colored them with Blends markers and cut them out with a stitched square die.  Popped them up with dimensionals, added a sentiment and candy dot and then layered it all over some Rich Razzleberry patterned paper.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
