The ampersand & is really trending now & the Perfect Pennants set uses the & in a cute way to say "You and Me." I don't think I've inked up that particular stamp yet, so this week's Create With Connie & Mary Color Challenge #300 inspired me to use the stamp.
I have to admit: this color combination had me stymied for a minute. I usually look at the colors & then pull out sheets of cardstock & lay them out to see what "hits" me. When I did that, I realized that these are the colors in my favorite (but retiring, sniff) piece of DSP for the current catalog from the Epic Day This & That collection. Here are the colors

I couldn't really figure out what do do with the Crumb Cake element until I latched on to the idea of using a tag. Once I had that idea, then I thought of using a circle to fill in the rest of the space. I searched through my stash of embossing folders until I hit on the Honeycomb EF &said, "Bingo!" I like how all the diverse elements come together on this card. & I love it when a plan comes together...quickly.
