Color Combo #140—Sweet Sunshine Rejoice!



Hello!  Head on over to Color Combos Galore to check out what inspired this week’s color combo--chiffon, white lines, copper brown, and sun’s grace--and to grab some inspiration from the designers. 

This picture was taken last week when we had an exceptionally nice, sunny, but cold, winter day.  Dixie and Dottie were soaking it up in the backyard.  I realized after putting this together, that this was my third consecutive layout utilizing puppy pictures--hope it continues.

I used lots of Cuttlebug texture on this--starting from the left, victoria embossing folder, ornamental iron embossing folder, floral fantasy embossing folder, and moroccan screen embossing folder. The heart die coupled with swiss dots embossing folder was used for the heart. I pieced the ornamental border together to make an almost 12-inch border at the bottom using a border die from the ornamental iron set.  Also utilized were some built-in embroidery stitches from my Singer Futura, along with some straight and zigzag stitches.   That machine is such a dream come true!   Autumn Leaves stamps with CTMH ink make the title.
