It's Wednesday: DCBD116

And you know what that means! A new Diva Coffee Break Design Challenge. This time we were challenged to use this awesome color combination: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Gray and Whisper White! Even though these colors are bright and fun I really wanted to use my new stamp set Thoughts & Prayers since I hadn't inked it up yet! I decided to be subtle with cardstock color but get my turquoise and green in with ink- works like a charm.

I tried my hardest to add ribbon, but in the end it just looked best without it. I did add a layer of vellum across the middle for a softer look, and then did some tiny detail cutting to add a raised flower to the sentiment. The tiny touch of fine cosmo glitter finished it off.

If you haven't already checked out the new Diva Blog, be sure to do so! There you will find a little sneak peek of each Diva's contribution to this challenge, and links to each of their blogs! Remember, these are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators using all current Stampin' Up! products. Please check them out!

Thanks for visiting!
