Last Color Challenge on Color Me Beautiful

The creators of Color Me Beautiful have decided to stop the challenge blog so this is the last color challenge.

I wasn't sure how I liked the color combination until I started putting it together.  The color combo:

Rose Red, Primrose Petals, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake and Sahara Sand.  I just happened to have all of the cardstock this time so it made it a little easier.  I also had both the Rose Red and Sahara Sand ink.

Here's what I came up with:
It's a Cupcake Take-Along! 
All products used are from Stampin' Up including all the stamps and punches I used to create this.  I had wanted to do this for a long time and my good friend is coming over next week to make one for her cousin.  I thought I should try making one first.  It was a lot harder than I thought it'd be.  Mostly because I didn't have the pattern, dimensions or directions.  I just had a photo to go on. 
I think if I make another one I'll use patterned paper to add more pizazz to it but since it was a color challenge, I wanted to use my cardstock and stamps.  I don't love the ribbon I used either, but that's a whole other story.

The front "square" is actually a pocket.  The inside tubes will be filled with sprinkles and the pocket can hold other cupcake decorations, candles, cupcake liners, etc.

Punches used:
Scalloped border punch
scallop circle
word window
(I forgot the name of the fancy thin punch - LOL)

I don't love it, but it's still cute...I definitely need to practice!


Thanks for visiting. I appreciate your comments. I love sharing my projects with you and hope to encourage you to create things on your own. Thanks again!
