Featured Stamper #96


Many thanks to everyone for playing along with my tropical colors in last week's challenge! The aqua, orange and yellow has always been a favorite of mine, and I'm glad it appears you all liked it, too!

The randomly chosen Featured Stamper today is Carla Suto with this darling card, which you can find in her gallery at Stamp TV. (Sorry I couldn't comment on it, Carla... I'm not a member over there!)
This card would definitely have fallen into my favorite list, and in addition here are my Top 5 faves, too (in no particular order!)


Thanks again to everyone for joining in! Stay tuned for a new challenge from Broni tomorrow!

It's that time again... let's throw down some colors! I'm hooked on this color combo, and I hope you'll love it, too! It just makes me think of summer! Remember, you don't have to have these exact colors... just use whatever you have that is similar. Link your creation below using the Inklinz widget (remember, direct links to your blog post... it makes it so much easier for us to find your entry on your blog when we don't have to search through other posts!)

Don't forget about the upcoming Color Throwdown #100 on July 7th! Check out the company logos in the right sidebar...we've got some fabulous prizes already from these generous companies, and can't wait to have you join us for the celebration!

Happy stamping!
