Hi Sweetie

Hey y'all!  How's your Thursday going?  I've got a sweet card for today.

I love this stamp set (A Little Wild) but haven't used it too often so I was happy to bust it out for today's card.  At first I wanted to make the sentiment say "Hello Sweetie" like River Song on Doctor Who, but I thought the "Hi" fit better with my other card elements.  And none of my friends are Doctor Who fans so they wouldn't get it anyway.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And I paired it with the Color Throwdown:

I used Smoky Slate, So Saffron, and Soft Suede for my colors.  I'll let you in on a little secret:  I don't like gray and brown together.  My mom hates navy blue and black together, so I guess color combo aversions run in the family?  Whatever the case, I just don't like them together at all, so I wanted to try this challenge because it WAS a challenge for me to combine gray and brown in a way that didn't make my eye twitch.  My solution?  A little gray shadow for "ground" under the bear.  Heh.

That's it for me today, y'all.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  A Little Wild, Labeler Alphabet
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron, Soft Suede, Smoky Slate
