Thoughts and Prayers {TCP Tuesday Color Challenge}

This week's TCP Tuesday challenge is to use the colors of Melon, Dark Blue and Sky Blue. You can use other colors in the mix but these must be represented somewhere on your project.

I debuted this card at the TCP Pajama Party for the latest release but not here on the blog. I started out by using the Dots CutUps as an embossing rather than as a cutting plate on the card base. I then stamped the sentiment from the Hang in There Baby stamp set onto a piece cut with the Framed Up 2 CutUps. I cut the frame from light blue cardstock using the same CutUps set. I centered both onto a piece cut with the Framed Up Cutups and then anchored the frame with buttons and felt flowers flower cut with  the Flower Button CutUps. I added another Flower Button combo in the top right corner with a flourish cut from cardstock using the Heart Swirl CutUps. All the patterned paper came from the Fancy Pants Collecting Moments pad.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Fancy Pants dp, PTI cs, felt and buttons, Linen Thread, Simon Says ink 

Here are the details:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook page.
