star gazer lily

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Can you believe that it's June already. I feel like I blinked and May zipped on by.

We have had a great start to the spring & soon summer season. Beautiful warm days and lots of sunshine. Although today it is supposed to rain and it looks very ominous outside right now.

My grandsons will be finished with school in the next few days. I will be over there 2 days a week taking care of them and getting them to all their camps and practices etc.

It's always a good bonding time for us during the summer.  I am creating memories for them that will be carried to adulthood.

Today they have a half day so I have to get over there by 12:00. I wanted to get this card up that I made for the color challenge #326 on splitcoaststampers.

regal rose,  pink pirouette, melon mambo
 This week Peggy McCurry is our hostess and she chose a great trio of colors. All in pinks we are this week- melon mambo, regal rose and pink pirouette.  

I decided to use a start gazer lily image since the color of this flower is like melon mambo. A vibrant shade of pink.

The image is from the rubber cafe. It is actually a tiger lily. I bought this stamp because I am making wedding invites and this is the flower the bride is carrying in her bouquet.

I stamped it in melon mambo ink and colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I did some fussy cutting and layered it on a melon mambo labels 18 die cut from spellbinders.

My designer paper is from Stampin-Up and its a pink pirouette shade.

The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - the rose blossom set. Added some pink & white ribbon with a fabric button to complete this card.

Time to run for me. So until next time - God bless...........

Some other challenges:
1.  A spoonful of sugar blog has a here comes summer challenge. We are to use summer images & colors.
2.  The craft room has an anything goes challenge.
3.   Stampin' Sisters in Christ want us to use something new on our project. A new product or a new color combo etc. I used both of these. My image is new and I have never used this color combo before.
