Welcome to today's colour challenge.  I love trying out new combinations and this one -- Ruby, Sorbet and Blush -- felt particularly spring-like to me, and it made me smile.  Especially when I paired it with this month's Stamp of the Month "Pinwheel". 

When I made these cards, I was supposed to be doing other things.  But life has been very busy, and it's going to continue for the rest of this month, so I took a wee creating break for myself.  And here's what I came up with.

Card #1: World Go Round

I was going for a clean, simple look with this card.  The colours look wonderful and the spotlight in the centre really draws your focus to the pinwheel and the sentiment.  I double stamped the pinwheel -- first and second generation -- to give a sense of motion.

I think I will use this card for Mother's Day this weekend -- because my Mom means the world to me!

Card #2:  Nice Day

This card makes me smile.  Random stamping was one of the first stamping techniques I ever learned, and it's still one of my favourite.  I stamped the stars in Blush and Sorbet on White Daisy cardstock and matted it with Ruby.  This card layout is #22 from "Make It From Your Heart", one of our amazing how-to books.  I inked the edges of the Ruby rectangle and stamped the sentiment in Ruby ink.  Then I created the dimensional pinwheel.  I used a lollipop stick to make it stand out.  And I added a touch of liquid glass on top of the red brad to make it shine.
