Happy Friday!

I hear there is good weather right around the corner... cross your fingers! (I'm in Ohio by the way, for those of you already enjoying nice weather... good for you... not intended to sound snarky... or was it?! LOL)

So, finally got to play with the Splitcoast Challenges today. Here is one for today's Limited Supplies challenge: What's your color? Use white and only one other color (not a neutral). Fun! My color is Blue Bayou! And crazy as it sounds, I also used TULLE on my card (had to look that word up for spelling purposes)- if you know me I am SO NOT a tulle girl, but found it in my stash (I have no idea where it came from!) and decided to use it. It actually looks pretty cool IRL. Not sure the pictures shows it real well.

This card was also for the Featured Stamper challenge from Sunday featuring Laura (stampnesxtras). No, she didn't use Tulle, but she did use this Pretty Petals background stamp as a focal point- very pretty!

OK, back to work on my swaps... I've taken all morning (and some of the afternoon) off!

Supplies are Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Pretty Petals background, Priceless, Warm Words
Paper: Whisper White, Blue Bayou, Glossy White
Ink: Whisper white, blue bayou
Accessories: Styled Silver hodgepodge, Diamond stickles, tulle, white gel pen, DS blue bayou ribbon
