First I want to start out my day by saying "Happy Birthday to my Mom"! My mom completed chemo back in February for lymphoma after 6 months of treatments and we just heard good news that she is cancer free! Thanks everyone for your prayers!

Welcome to a new challenge this week for Create with Connie & Mary. This week we have a color challenge:

And in keeping with my promise for this month, I am using stamp image #3 in the "Best of Flowers" stamp set:

I just love blue and yellow together. Reminds me of my basketball, volleyball and softball days in high school. Our school colors were blue & gold and we were the "Crusaders". We as females called ourselves the "Crusaderettes"! Miss those days and wish I still played sports! I still have in my possession, the state championship softball that I  myself caught for the very last out during my senior year to clinch our title! Just a little tidbit about myself!

Anyway, enough of that. I stuck to a clean card today by using just a dab of embossing and layering everything with the Summer Starfruit color and you'll notice that I stamped the image twice. The first time with Summer Starfruit Ink and using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, stamped a 2nd time using Gumball Green. I moved the 2nd image over a dab to show a shadow:
