Color Inspiration Challenge #16

Yup...another challenge. Even though the colors Kristina chose are a great combo, I struggled putting them together, especially the pumpkin pie. In this challenge I wanted to try some stamping but didn't. I find it difficult to stamp. I don't know why... And trying to come up with a creation to submit this challenge was such an effort. I think my creative mojo just needs a swift kick!
Anyhoo...I made another acrylic card. (One of the engineers at work was cleaning out her cubicle and throwing away some old reports. I immediately snatched up the acrylic covers on the reports and recycled them to use for my cards. Score!)
There isn't any stamping on this card except the SU! Polka Dot background stamp. I just {heart} that stamp. And while I was putting it together, Miss Emma Peel started to gnaw on the big flower. I hope cat teeth marks doesn't disqualify my submission. :o)

i love you

I like to incorporate some ribbon on my cards but not this one and I think it needs some ribbon.
I found that "i love you" sticker somewhere in my stash. Not really the sentiment I was going for, but it was late when I was finishing up this card and I was getting tired.

Next weekend there's a Stamp Expo in Riverside. I'm meeting Wendy there and I can't wait to meet her and also pick up some awesome stamps. Hopefully I'll learn a thing or two at the expo or from Wendy. She's a talented artist herself!

Mata ne!!

Oooh...this is so pretty! I love how you made the stem for the flowers! I love the clear acrylic that covers the image, great idea! I've got a stash of old report covers that would look great, so you gave me a wonderful idea! I can't wait for the Expo! My shopping list is growing everyday!!
