In a color mood

 Good morning! For the last few days I have been in a color mood. Do you ever get into one, where you just want to create with only a couple colors? This week for me has been pink and orange. I guess I am in the mood for summer, because those a definitely hot colors.

First, I made a card for the Shabby Tea Room Challenge. This week's challenge is a Bingo Challenge, allowing us to chose from 3 of 9 embellishments to add to our cards. I'm not sure I completely met the challenge, but that's ok, I'm not doing it for any prize, just trying to stretch myself out of my little rut I've been in.
I used some Imagine printed paper ( Blast Off Cart) and some GCD paper, along with this LYB envelope. ( Note- everything is scraps) and I added a button, crinkled ribbon ( I sell crinkled ribbon in my ETSY store), glitter, flowers , and a brad. The stamps are from Basic Gray, I added glitter to the large Petalloo flower and the stamped journal spot. I also fussy cut out the teapot and added a Prima flower to that. Add in my usual button and twine under the brad. 

I still have pics to edit, but I thought I'd share this small tag as well. It's made with some leftovers from another project, I used my Cricut and Gypsy to cut out a bunch of these small hearts, I layered them on my Cricut cut tag  and I added my crinkled ribbon to the top in a bow, with a button and some twine. I added scallop punched borders to the bottom, popped up a single heart with UCutIt from Glue Arts and then added the banner, twine, flower and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today!
( look even my sig line as orange and pink! LOL!!)
