SPCC Color Combo #121

Today I come to you as a member of the SPCC Design Team. I am so excited to be designing for one of Samantha's blogs. She has had a weekly color combo for over two years. I was on the inaugural design team for a year, but then stepped down due to a number of other obligations. I am delighted to be back. I love the challenge of working with specific colors - often a combination I would never have considered. Try these colors and see what you come up with (you don't have to use SU colors - just try to get close). Samantha offers a lovely prize to a winner chosen at random from the entries. For this card, I used two different sets from SP & Company stamps. The design on the green strip is from Flourishee. I love this set, because it has a lot of different sizes of a similar design. I also repeated the design inside the card. The faux stitching is from Stitchery Doo. Samantha designs her own stamps, which are made in the USA of high-quality photo polymer.
I have been delightfully busy lately. It is mid-semester, so I have been giving (and grading) mid-term exams. I teach 5 classes, mostly structural classes in Construction Science and Management. I love teaching at the college level. My students choose to be there and, best of all, I don't have parent-teacher conferences!
This past weekend, I took my oldest daughter, Bree, to Lawrence, KS for a weekend getaway. We had a delightful time shopping, eating, and relaxing. Now it's back to the work week, but we both feel rejuvenated. I will post some pictures at a later time.
I hope that you all have a lovely week. Be sure to take some time for yourself!
