Mama Elephant August color challenge



Hello! Happy Friday!!  Can I get an “oh yeah!”

I saw this color inspiration challenge from Mama Elephant the other day. Of all challenges I think color challenges are probably my favorite. And this one was one I knew I HAD to try out. Just check out the photo and you’ll probably see why.

AugustUm…hello! This photo just speaks to me in a million ways. I was so inspired by the white on white, the black and white stripes, and the pink and yellow pops of color. I just love that sofa, and those pillows! I also took a cue from the XO on the pillow and made a fun “I love you” kind of card.

I recently purchased my first Mama Elephant stamps. They have such fun designs that are really up my alley. I used the Smitten set for this card.

My kids followed me down to my craft space last night, and while I was crafting they all sat down to join me. It was tons of fun! I love it when they wander into my craft space and start crafting with me. I pretty much give them free reign of my stuff. I love to see what they come up with.  Fun times.

Hope your day is happy!

Thanks for stopping by.

    Great take on the photo! I love the washi like strip you created with the bar code, and such careful thought in pulling all these elements together. Great blend of colors and textures!
