CC349.....Birthday Wishes


Happy Hump Day Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.
Loved this color combo, Baja Breeze, Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade with a neutral of your choice and the dessert option was to have a decorative edge.

I immediately thought of flowers, these colors are perfect for that. I pulled out a set I LOVE, the Stampin Up "Array of Sunshine" This is a hostess set. I stamped a bunch of the flower onto whisper white card stock using calypso coral ink. I stamped the flower twice with out re-inking to get the two shades of coral. I stamped the leaves with lucky limeade and then I cut them all out an layered up the flowers. I mounted them onto a piece of whisper white card stock that I embossed with the dot folder. I matted the white with a piece of calypso coral card stock. I tucked in a bunch of the cut out leaves around the flowers.


The base of the card is baja breeze and then a layer of white and more baja breeze. I sponged the edges of the baja card stock with baja ink. I punched a strip of lucky limeade with the lace edge punch and ran that across the bottom part of the card. I added the flower piece to the card with some dimensionals.
I added some pearls to the center of the flowers and the "pearl flourishes" are non SU. The sentiment is from the "Something to Celebrate" stamp set, I believe this set is retired.
Well, that is all from me thanks for stopping by and
HAPPY STAMPING!!!
