Mystery Hostess Color Challenge


This is to play along with Helle's Mystery Hostess challenge over on the a-muse-a-palooza blog. Her challenge is to make a black & white card with a splash of pink and a bit of bling. Thought I'd create something "scoopy" for this one - LOL! I used a pink twinkle sticker on the truck's headlight for the "bit of bling". The road is one of the stamps in the Fancy Borders clear set. To see all the other great designs submitted for this challenge, click here.

A quick tip for ya on making the "swallowtail" flag for the sentiment. Use a square punch! Just slide the strip of cardstock into the corner edge of the punch. Here's a photo of what I mean (this was shared in a recent A Muse Weekly as well). Makes it super easy!
