Makeup 4 the Weekend -- COLORS!

Good Morning!
I hope that everyone is having a glorious Sunday morning. 
Here, I am listening to the birds singing (with a bit of Max&Ruby mixed in) and the sun is shining. It looks like it is going to be a gorgeous day here. 

I feel the need to hit the ice cream shop tonight. When I was in high school, we would go out on Sunday evenings for ice cream at Baskin Robbins. Hot summer evenings + ice cream = it's a wonderful mix!

Speaking of wonderful mixes, I love this week's Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge! This week's challenge came from Gabby (she's been in the hospital, so head on over to her blog and give her some "get well" wishes) and it was to create a card using the Stampin' Up colors: 

Buckaroo Blue, Close to Cocoa, Kiwi Kiss, Summer Sun, and Perfect Plum. 

I don't use Stampin' Up so I just went with colors that seemed like they would be close and managed to include 4 out of the 5...

This is a super-simple card that relies mainly on that gorgeous sentiment (out of the set, Faith Hope Love) that works totally on it's own and the beautiful paper.

Supplies used:
*Paper Makeup Stamps Faith Hope Love
*Martha Stewart seam binding
*Websters Pages Vintage Sparklers
*Martha Stewart butterfly punch
*Martha Stewart border punch

Now it's YOUR time to shine!! Make a creation using any color combo from the colors listed above (substitutions are fine), link it up to Mr. Linky (direct links only please) on the PMS blog, and please mention the challenge in your blog post. That's it! You do not have to use Paper Makeup Stamps but if you've got them why not show them off! If you link up to SCS/PCP please use keyword M4TW29!!

What sweet paper to use with this saying. I love all the word art in the Faith Hope Love set. :)
