I had a lot of fun making today's card. I got to use lots of bright, cheerful colors and lots of happy DSP. What's happy DSP? Any patterned paper that makes you smile. :)
I used the inspiration challenge from the PALS PAPER ARTS blog. This is challenge PPA41. At first I was going to make a card using Real Red, So Saffron, and Baja Breeze. Then I realized everyone was using those colors for the challenge, so I went with something totally different! I used the fun bird plate as my inspiration. It has lots of juicy colors to choose from. The sketch comes from Karen Giron's blog, the sweetest thing. This is Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 68. Great sketch to use up scraps of DSP, and to add lots of color to your card.
The card base is Orchid Opulence. The DSP is frm Pink Flamingo, Sweet Pea, and some really old stuff I am too lazy to look up the name to. :) The little birdie was stamped in Pacific Point with a Tempting Turquoise wing. The branch is Green Galore. The flowers are Yoyo yellow, and the sentiment is Tangerine Tango. A nice mix of retiring and returning colors. The ribbon is really old retired SU! stuff. It's called Apple Green. Speaking of retiring colors, if you want to stock up on them, you better place your order ASAP as supplies running low. And once it's gone, it's gone!!
Be sure to stop back by tomorrow and see the awesome color combo Arielle picked for this week's ColourQ. On Wednesday, I hope to have a cupcake challenge card and Thursday will be the second STAMPIN' CELEBRATION inspiration challenge. Wow! What a fun week of stamping goodness!
