Bella Bleu Bliss

Just a quickie post for you today with a seriously 'wow' card using A Rose is A Rose. In case you don't know, this is my favorite stamp set... my stamping version of comfort food. ;) I combined a few challenges for this little diddy:

Makeesha Byl's Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge (there's a mouthful). I loved the colors from her inspiration photo. This combo of More Mustard, So Saffron, and Not Quite Navy will definitely be reappearing here at Sassy Stampin' - LOVE! (Even my hubby commented how much he liked the colors - usually I just get a standard 'nice, honey').

The layout is from Crazy 4 Challenges. Have you checked them out yet? CRAZY talent and divine design - need I say more?

Off to take care of my simply sweet (but sickly) snot-nosed snuggle bug. Cold season stinks! ;)

Tomorrow: Pals Paper Arts simplifies life with a KISS Challenge. (No, not for your lips - for your stamps, silly!)
