The first assignment of the evening was a color challenge: kraft, light green, aqua blue, and yellow. I pulled out this fun Cuttlebug die cut and embossing folder I had snatched up at Big Lots last year for $2. What a steal!! The sentiment is from Blue Skies by Verve.
For this challenge we were to include a boat. Sail Away by Stampin' Up had just been delivered to my door. Perfect timing! The sentiment is from Make a Wish Quotes by Fiskars. I think this will make a nice masculine birthday card.
This challenge required a square card with a colorful bird! I reached for the hummingbird in A Year of Thanks 2008, a retired set from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
