february EAD Designs color challenge

i mentioned on monday that i could not be more excited about being the february guest at EAD DESIGNS. for one thing, i get to play along with amy tsuruta's* fabulous color challenge 21! which looks a bit like this:

here are the coordinating stickerz that amy chose for the DT gals-- (YOU can use any products you like; they needn't even be EAD... although i bet you HAVE SOME, dontcha?!) --this set is called vintage treasures and i think they're FAB!!! remember all stickerz and rub-ons ship for free, every day; no code or coupon needed!

and now, here is my card:

("vintage treasures" clear stickerz by EAD DESIGNS; patterned paper: prima, pink paislee; journaling card: echo park; brads: making memories, oriental trading; ribbon: michaels; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, gluedots)

i am pretty psyched about using the word sticker in a sort of non-traditional way by cutting off the "S" and printing a couple of lines of text on a clear label to affix above it! there was a certain amount of discussion between myself and lovely husband jeff as to whether or not the sentiment is "too mean". i voted "no"... and it's my card... so luckily i also got the tie-breaker vote! :)

i do think the elegance of the stickerz and the classic simplicity of the black and white palette make the rest of the card sophisticated enough to take the "sting" out of the joke. (but you know me... i'd've done it anyway, lol!!!)

check out all the details (did i mention there's an awesome prize for one lucky participant?!) and link up your own card at the EAD DESIGNS blog!!!

*one of the best bits is the chance to be the same uber-talented team which includes my friends miss amy and miss rose! wahey!!!  ♥♥♥
