Happy Anniversary!

Hi everyone!
I am sharing a card I made for my good friend, Maureen & her husband.
I know she received this card already so I can share it here. 

I was inspired by the Pink Lemonade mood board in the Online Card Class, "In the Mood!"
There was a little sign in front of jars of Pink Lemonade and I basically copied the sketch using the same colors and frame idea on my card.

I stamped the stripes after cutting out my frame using the Holiday Apertures die from Wplus9.  I created a mask using one of the hearts from the Folk Heart die set.  I then sponged Worn Lipstick distress inks, removed the mask and stamped the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!
Sharing a card using Retro Flowers by Clearly Whimsy Stamps.
My color inspiration came from the Bonus Mood Board - Mint Mambo in the online card class, 

I used my circle stencil to sponge some dots onto my card stock then stamped the flowers on each circle, offsetting them just a bit.  Added the sentiment and rhinestones in each flower.  I matted using black card stock then added to Melon Mambo base.  The black is a strip of black card stock.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

ShowCASe your Style #18: Color

Hi everyone!
Time for another challenge at showCASe your style.
This week we have a color challenge for you.

 Here is my card...

I started by stamping the circles from Circles, Circles, Circles stamp set in random blues down the front of my card.  After it was filled in to my liking I cut a strip to fit on either side of my stamping.  Added those with dimensional adhesive.  Stamped the Thanks from Thanks a Million using an Ombre ink pad.  Trimmed it out and attached it across the two panels.  Added some blue & sparkly clear sequins to embellish.

We'd love to see your card inspired by the colors!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
