Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #41

Hi Stamping Friends!!
It's time for another celebration at the the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  This week we have a gorgeous purple, green, and black theme.  Very striking!  Looks like it could be a bridal shower, but because I'm still celebrating the 2nd birthday of my favorite online Stampin' Up! only online hangout, Stampin' Addicts, so I just had to make another birthday card!! :)

Stamps:  Fifth Avenue Floral, Create A Cupcake (sentiment)
Paper:  Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, First Edition DSP
Accessories:  Oval Die, Perfect Details Texturz plate, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Striped Grosgrain, Razzleberry Brads

Sketch Challenge:  CLEAN & SIMPLE #128

Can you believe this is the first time I've ever used my First Edition DSP?!!  Shame on me!!  It's such fabulous paper.  I don't know why I never opened it before!!  I was really inspired by the striking colors in the photographs.  Of course you can't not be inspired by the flowers as well.  So pretty!  Be sure to stop be the Stampin' Celebration blog and see what the other amazing designers have created.  Those girls really know how to stamp!!

And don't forget about tomorrow... the Stampin' Addicts Birthday Techniques Blog Hop!!!  I will be showcasing the "spotlighting" technique.  I hope you can hop along with us!!  It will be a party you don't want to miss!

(Isn't this blog banner fun?!  It was created with My Digital Studio!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
