Baja Pizzaz

The Splitcoaststampers weekly color challenge is so much fun. And today was especially delightful as the chosen colors were my favorites. The blues - Baja Breeze and Pacific Point with Garden Green. I used one of the new SU! catalog's stamp set called Petal Pizzaz. It has a funky retro look. The Rock 'n Roll technique was used for the large flower; inked up the stamp with the lighter, Baja Breeze, and then rolled the edges on the darker Pacific Point ink pad.

All supplies from Stampin' Up.

I've been keeping up with the Project 365 and will post those pages in the days to come. This is such a cool project~ I can't wait to share the pages with you!
We had quite a bit of snow today in the St. Louis area. Most schools were closed including my daughters. I was fortunate to be able to work from home today.
Stay warm!
