The season of Spring is about here even though it doesn't feel like it outside. SUO Challenges #196 is all about Spring and it's wonderful events. Go visit their blog for some great ideas for Spring themed cards. I designed this card so that it would fit into a standard business sized envelope for mailing. It features the Sweet Sugarplum 2016-2018 in-color, lots of gold accents, and a Very Vanilla Background.

What could be more elegant than a silver embossed wedding card made with the Petal Palette stamp set from Stampin' UP? How about a wedding card enhanced with the softness of watercoloring those beautiful roses?
I knew that I wanted to color the beautiful cabbage roses from the Petal Palette stamp set in Cherry Cobbler so I colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The roses were cut out on the Big Shot using the matching framelits. I really loved how they looked. I added the textured behind them using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder on a piece of Old Olive card stock and then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The sentiment comes from this stamp set as well.
The Birthday Wit stamp set by Stampin' UP is loaded with funny sentiments for birthday cards. I decided to pair it with a few of my favorite colors like Peekaboo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist, as well as one of my top ten picks from the Occasions catalog.
