St. Paddy’s Day Card Challenges

Every once in a while, I like to play and combine a lot of card challenges.  Today's card combines three different ideas: card design, card layout and color.  Make sure to check out these fabulous blog sites.  They are a terrific source of inspiration on those days when you are having creative block and can't seem to come up with an idea.

Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set

In Color Bouquet

Beautiful Bouquet Bundle I designed this card for my friend's birthday and had a lot of fun combining the In Color's from the annual catalog and the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle elements.  I used a Basic Black card base and framed the bouquet with Berry Burst card stock.  It was then set on a Whisper White ruffled background.

It is always a fun time of year when Stampin' UP releases the new in color palette that is good for the next two years. I was ecstatic when I saw the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. It reminds me so much of those neon colors that I grew up with as a teenager in the '80s. Simply fun and beautiful!
