CCMC452 – Big On Birthdays

This week we have a pretty color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary.  The colors scream SPRING to me, even though we could get SNOW around here today and tonight!  Yikes!



Here’s my card using Big on Birthdays!  First time I’ve used this image in that set!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 So Saffron cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • A 1-1/2 x 5-1/4 piece of Peekaboo Peach Paper Pack DSP was added to the top of a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White.
  • The large Big On Birthdays greeting was stamped with Memento Black Ink towards the bottom.
  • The flowers were colored with So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Sahara Sand Markers.
  • A portion of a Lace Doily was sponged with So Saffron Ink, then added below the Designer Paper.
  • A row of Pearls were added along the seam of the DSP.
  • A length of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon was tied in a knot, then added to the top of the doily with a Mini Glue Dot.

I love all the little feminine details on here!  Hope you do, too!  Check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did with this color combination over on Create with Connie and Mary today!

Sorry Connie as I have been delinquent with my comments. I just had to say this is so fresh and pretty. It reminds me so much of the daffodils that are blooming in my yard. I have that stamp on order and I think I will be CASEing this idea with that stamp! Everything just melds together into one beautiful spring card. I love the touch of the sponged doily as well. Thanks for sharing and posting it with us.

This is so pretty! I’ve been trying to resist buying this stamp set, but you’re not making it easy!
