Color Blog Hop Wednesday -- January 20, 2015

Today is another freezing, cold, day.  And unfortunately we are in for a big snow storm over the weekend.  Where I live is in the mountains of West Virginia and the storm is forecast to drop anywhere from 25 to 28 inches of snow.  Yikes!  Wherever you are, I hope you will be safe, warm, and dry.

Our challenge today includes some of my favorite colors.  Subtles, like beiges and whites.  They are Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip.  You may have come from Liz's blogsite.  She usually does something really pretty with soft colors, so I am anxious to see what she did this week.  When you finish here, continue to Robbie's blogsite.  Robbie does well regardless the color.  I love how she chooses her combinations and the extra touches she always adds.

 My card is very simple.  It uses the Sale-a-bration FREE stamp set, Sky Is The Limit.  I also have purchased Going Global and Going Places designer paper from the Occasions Mini.  My intent is to use both the stamp sets and the paper for my scrapbooking of the travel my husband and I do.  Back to the card, the dsp on this card is a piece of the Going Places dsp.  I stamped the airplane on Very Vanilla, however, then I stamped it again, cut it out and affixed the cut out over the stamped image to give some depth.  The sentiment is also from Sky Is The Limit.

This card is masculine, which was my intent.  My uncle's 90th birthday is the end of this month, and since he was a pilot in WWII and then a pilot after the war, I think he would like the airplane.  I think it looks a little like the crop duster he flew when he was young.

Now continue on to Robbie and come back here soon.

Crafty Hugs,

Love it, Sandy! How did you make that swirl at the bottom? I can't remember how that's done.
