A Happy Hello

Two posts in two days. Woah! Happy Friday everyone! Fridays don't mean much for me anymore since I work just about every weekend. I did have today off so that was nice. The card I have to share today follows three challenges:

Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #7: Raspberry, Celery/Moss, & Artichoke
Charisma Cards Challenge #21: Going Dotty
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Animals

I really like this color combination. They work well together. All products used, minus the black ink, are by Papertrey Ink. I can't get enough of that company! My wishlist is a mile long and it continues to grow with their fabulous releases on the 15th of each month. I had a slight difficulty with the two-step bird stamp, LOL. I believe it took me 10 tries to get her wing lined up even enough to be presentable. I'm surprised I didn't have trouble creating the spotted background, but I got it the first time. I definitely see some more background sets in my future! Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I have to work both Saturday and Sunday. I'm not sure of my schedule next week.. so I don't know when exactly I'll be back with another card. Thanks for dropping by! Ciao.

Stamps: Everyday Classics, Background Basics: Spots & Dots (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz (Papertrey Ink), Jet Black (Staz-On)
Cardstock: Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz
