Reach for the sky She is an inspiration

Doris Day is 88 years young today, and she is a real inspiration to us all.  In her career she starred in nearly 40 movies and just released an album last year.  In her peak of popularity she was the epitome of a wholesome starlet who seemed like the girl-next-door.  When she retired from film, she dedicated her time to rescuing and caring for animals.  I hope that all of her dreams do come true (if they haven't already)! 

I created this card for two reasons: 1 – to showcase the shaving cream technique and 2 – to complete a color challenge posted on the ColourQ site.  I love the color challenges that they come up with!  I substituted Pool Party instead of Cool Caribbean for this one because Cool Caribbean is a retired color.  I think it is close enough to count…  Here's a picture of the inspiration for the challenge:

I used the following materials to complete this project:

  • Stamps: Up, Up & Away, Heard from the Heart
  • Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party
  • Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party (ink refill)
  • Accessories: Pinking Hearts Border punch
