This week's Mustang Monday color of the week is Strawberry Slush. I chose this color because it will be gone before we know it. Every year Stampin' Up! brings in 5 brand new colors that we get to enjoy for 2 years. Strawberry Slush was introduced in 2013 so it will be leaving us come June 1st. So I am hoping to get each one of those retiring colors covered in the coming weeks. I really love the "In-Colors" from 2013-2015 and will be very sad to see them go.
I used an embossing folder to to add dimension to the top flap of the card and decorated the label with a stamp from my Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. The sentiment comes from Mother's Love stamp set, which I will be demo-ing during my April Craft Along event on facebook this coming Saturday evening at 7pm.
The other combination suggested by our Color Coach card is Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe. For this combo, I created a Thank You card that I will be sending to one of my lucky customers. I love the butterfly punch and I love that Stampin' Up! has so many great butterfly stamps to coordinate and use along with it.
While preparing to create my cards for this evening, I was looking through my stash of card swaps for inspiration and I came across a couple of cards that I just have to share because both of these cards use the color combinations shown on our Color Coach card for Strawberry Slush, the combos I created cards for as well. The flower thanks card was created by Cindy Trowbridge and the Congrats card was created by Elisa M. Saucier. Both of these ladies are team mates of mine and we share cards through our monthly team swaps. One of the many perks of being a demonstrator!
I hope you enjoyed this week's Mustang Monday post. Don't forget, you are invited to join our Mustang Monday color challenge from last week. I will be accepting cards until April 24. Come join the fun!

Disclaimer: I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I am working on replacing all my craft supplies with only Stampin' Up! product, but I will occasionally use some of my non-SU stash. Bare with me as I work to replenish my stash with only SU product. I will be highlighting new products as they come in and I will always point out great alternatives to my non-SU product that are Stampin' Up!. Thanks for understanding.
