Thursday Challenge#48: Sketch Pad: Cute by the inch

This week's challenge is the Sketch Pad. I really liked this layout, and have to admit it made me think.

For my card I decided that I wanted to use the Stampin' Up! Hostess Set "Cute by the Inch" and the image that I wanted to use kind of gives the old tile ceiling feel. I then chose my color for the tiles as Pumpkin Pie, I then was a little stumped on what colors to put with it so then I pulled out the Stampin' Up! Color Coach. I love the color coach because it gives you two set of choices on the back and a lot of times they are colors you wouldn't think of on your own. So when I grabbed the color coach and opened up to Pumpkin Pie, it paired Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight. And it turned out great together.

For the checkered background DSP I used the Presto Patterns Specialty DSP where the sheets all come white with glossy designs so you can customize them to your project. I used my brayer to color the dsp with Pumpkin Pie.  Then for the solid Pumpkin Pie cardstock I dry embossed with the Square Lattice Emboss Folder for the Big Shot.  

So here is what I made. I know the colors are more fall than spring but really I think it is ok.

Supplies: Stamp Set: Cute by the Inch (Hostess); Cardstock: Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Presto Patterns DSP, Greenhouse Gala DSP; Ink: Pumpkin Pie Accessories: Antique Brads
