PPA #6 Color Challenge!

A color challenge! Beautiful colors aren't they?
Well I missed #4 because I ran out of time, darn job gets in the way every time. :) #5 I missed because I was to late getting my little sock monkey's costume on him. So now we come to #6 and I've finished early. This is just not like me. I procrastinate about everything! But her is my post. Mine is a Thank You Card this week. Take a peek.

I started out with that Brocade Blue as my card base. Then adding Beautiful Crushed Curry and using my "Big Shot" I embossed the top half of the card with Stampin' Ups! new embossing folder, Finial Press. The bottom portion was embossed with another embossing folder. I then added the half circle using Brocade Blue which was cut using my new circle scissor plus. I stamped the little guys on whisper white card stock using Stazon Jet Black Ink. He then got stamped a few more on Brocade Blue, Crushed Currry and Ruby Red. Well, I like to cut things out. I then glued their little shirts on them and gave them each a new heart! With Stampin' Ups! medium twill tape and my markers for the three colors I colored the "Thanks So Much"
stamp from the same stamp set. Attaching the twill tape I then flipped the ends of the little hearts over the top of the tape so it looks like they are standing at some type of table. The Crushed Currey and Brocade Blue are punched with the medium oval punch and the FRIEND is punced with a small oval punch and then sponged around the edges. The stamp set I used was the "Smarty Pants" set.
