Hello there! It's time for a new challenge at The Challenge! This week we have a bright and beautiful inspiration photo for you. I also have the pleasure of sharing some happy news with you, the stamps I used for today's card are from the April release at Concord & 9th! They invited me to be one of their guest designers for April so I've been playing with these stamps for the past week and I think you're going to LOVE them!
Oh happy day, just look at those bright colors in the inspiration photo!! You know how I love my bright colors, and I knew they would work perfectly with the new Concord & 9th stamp set, Flourish!
This stamp set was designed to make a large branch with flowers and buds, but I love creating my own background patterned paper, particularly with flowers, so that's what I did for my card today.
I stamped the largest flower using Wplus9 Falling Star and Little Piggy for the first 2 layers and PTI Raspberry Fizz for the base. The smaller flowers were stamped using Little Piggy and Raspberry Fizz, and the hearts using Falling Star. The leaves were stamped using Wplus9 Beanstalk, and the tiny dots were stamped with Ocean Drive. The sentiment banner is also from a new Concord & 9th stamp set called Crazy Awesome. I cut the banner part of the stamp off of the larger image (you'll have to click on the link for this stamp set to understand what I'm talking about lol), after stamping it with Ocean Drive. I stamped the word "awesome" using Little Piggy, and the word "you're" using Bean Stalk. The word "sister!" is from the Concord & 9th stamp set Wonderful Women. I finished my card with some pink sequin trim, also from Concord & 9th.
