Bloggers Challenge – Happy Moments

Today is Friday and time for Bloggers' Challenge!  This week's challenge was to use the color Green and a neutral!  Wow!  I had a tough time finding a stamp that I could just color in greens.  Now…I'm sure all the fabulous ladies will find lots of ways to use the color green!

 

My card started with a base of Garden Green cardstock.  I layered on the green print from Kaleidoscope (I know…I'm hooked on this paper!)  I did the scallop rectangle with both the Scallop Corner Trim Punch and Scallop Border Trim Punch from Confetti White cardstock.  Then I layered Garden Green and Certainly Celery in the center.  I stamped the gifts from Stampin' Up!'s free Sale-A-Bration set, Happy Moments, in Basic Black on Confetti White and watercolored it with my Stampin' Write Markers and AquaPainter.  Finally, I added the White Satin Ribbon in the background and added a pretty Satin White bow on the front!

 

Hope you have a great weekend!  While you are reading this, I'm at a long weekend stamping retreat!  I'm SURE I'm having fun!

Great birthday card, Connie!  Love the big white bow–and the Kaleidoscope paper, too. Hope you're having a great time at your stamping retreat!

Really cute!  I didn't choose to use any neutrals and I wish I had.  Just the touch of browns brings depth to  the color scheme.  Nice Card :-)!
