Blossom Birthday Card


A few of my favorite crafting tools were used to create this Blossom Birthday Card. They are:
All the supplies listed are from Stampin' Up! and I would definitely call them my go-to tools for beautiful handmade cards. I created this Blossom Birthday Card using this weeks sketch from The Paper Players. The sketch was designed by Anne Marie Hile and I love it's versatility. I know I'll be using this sketch again. The colours came from this weeks ColourQ challenge to use: Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade, and White, card stock colours by Stampin' Up!. I can honestly say before this challenge I had never used Always Artichoke, but after using it, I really like it. The inside of the card is decorated and stamped with "Have a Great Birthday." I don't always decorate the inside of my cards but this one seemed to need it. I hope you have a FABulous day and thanks for stopping by!!!

My Blossom Birthday Card is entered into the following challenge:

  4. Beautiful! I love it when stampers combine two of my favorite challenges! You've used the CQC colors in a lovely way...your floral and butterfly images are put together in such a clever way! I hope this will inspire you to use Always Artichoke more often, too! Thanks for playing with the Paper Players AND the CQC this week!
