Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #56 - Stampin' Up! Longfellows

Baked Brown Sugar #1


I had such a lovely time exploring the last lot of In Colors that I thought I would jump onto Baked Brown Sugar and the other In Colors while I was at this end of the Color Coach. The colour combo for Baked Brown Sugar is Bermuda Bay and Crisp Cantaloupe. 

CASE Study have THE cutest card to inspire this week. I just love it! Less is More are also challenging their follows to use water colouring in a clean & simple style.

The CASE Study card features an adorable little dachshund so it prompted me to revisit a vintage Stampin' Up! set called "Longfellows". This card is one of the reasons that I will never part with Hostess sets....they are so rare, but often they are some of the cutest stamp sets you will ever see. The balloons are from "Pedal Presents" another vintage hostess set. 

Moral to story....

1. acquire all the SU Hostess sets!

2. Never part with them!

Here's my card:

Hope you like my card! It is going to a friend who LOVES dachshunds who also happens to be a mum-to-be!
