Bloomin' Marvelous

It's time to Sale-a-brate!  I love getting freebies.  Don't you?

This card uses one of the Sale-a-bration sets, Bloomin' Marvelous.  I love all four of the little designs.  And it has 4 really nice sentiment too.


Addicted to Stamps is having a CAS challenge this week.  You may create any project you like but it MUST be CAS!

Less is More is asking for cards with the theme of FRIENDS.  I think this is a wonderful sentiment for a friend.

CAS at Splitcoaststampers has a lovely sketch challenge this week.

The Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers is having a Soft Calypso Party this week.  The dessert option is to use these non traditional colors for a Valentine.  I've pierced a heart around the sentiment.  So I guess this could be used for a Valentine.

Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Pool Party

Still addInktive is a new challenge site.  They have a challenge every other week and on the alternating weeks feature a Stampin' Up! set that we can link up with.  This week they are featuring the Stampin' Up! ® Stamp Sets, Patterned Occasions, Pretty Petites and Bloomin' Marvelous.  You can add up to 3 entries and the lovely ladies at still addInktive are offering some wonderful shaped card templates for our entries.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Bloomin' Marvelouse (SAB)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Calypso Coral, Pool Party
Paper:  Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Other:  Big Shot, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Adorning Accents EF, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, Bitty Butterfly Punch, Basic Pearls

This card was quick and easy!  Having the stamp set narrowed down and the colors and sketch given, it's not too confusing.  Usually all these challenges roll around in my head until I'm totally confused!  It was fun to play.  Now back to work.

I'm so glad you stopped by.  Leave a note so I'll know to return the visit.

Bonnie, you are the queen of combining challenges! I'm lucky if I manage to combine two! Your card is so lovely - a great use of the sketch challenge and a wonderful layout within your focal panel (it could be a sketch all of its own!).
