Roses on Paper Design Team Color Challenge - Aqua, Peach and Butter Yellow!

There are just some things that tug at your heart. For me, it's a little girl with her baby doll or favorite toy. I remember one of my favorite toys was a striped tiger cat that I still have to this day. I would drag that cat with me everywhere, sleep with her every night. When I saw "Mummy Loves You", from Sarah Kay in Summer's store, Roses on Paper, I knew I had to have her! She reminds me of everything good and innocent from our youth. Looking at her brought back so many summer days out in the back yard sitting on a blanket talking to my sweet kitty, making all sorts of grand plans for my life.

It was my time to host our Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge and I chose some of my favorite colors - Aqua, Peach, and Butter Yellow! I think this Basic Grey Paper from their Gypsy collection was perfect for my little Sarah Kay sweetie, who I colored with distressed inks. The Prima flowers are touched with what else - stickles and I used some dew drops in the corners and the middle of the flowers. I used a bit of Glossy Accents on the ball to give it a bit of dimension and a bit of sparkle along the elastic of her hat. Some scrapper's floss and spring butterfly and flower charms just add a finishing touch. I've highlighted the products that I used on this card that you can pick up from Summer's great store, Roses on Paper. Great stuff!

Make sure you stop by my fellow Design Team Sister's blogs (you can find them on the right hand column on my blog) and our Roses on Paper Design Team blog to see their beautiful creations and join in my color challenge this week. Some of them may not be up until tomorrow, but please stop by and check them out. What I've seen has been fabulous! Join in the challenge because I'd love to see what you create!

I hope everyone gets the opportunity to spend some time telling their favorite person or toy or pet that they love them today. Don't ever miss an opportunity to let someone or something know you love it.

Card Ingredients:

Mummy Loves You by Sarah Kay, Dew Drops, Gypsy Paper by Basic Grey, Scrapper's Floss in Aqua, charms, rub on sentiment from stash, Prima flowers, stickles.
