Birthday Bouquet for my Card Stash!
I was looking through my "card stash" box last night and realized I didn't have much of any variety in there for quick "card emergencies"! Most of the cards were used during christmas for gifts, card tins, etc. I was on a mission to sit down and make several Birthday cards that I could grab at a moments notice and package up to give as a gift. (this was one of my New Year's Resolutions!) I knew right away I wanted to use Marigold Morning since it is one of my newly acquired colors. hmmmm what could I pair it with..............well Basic Black of course - with a little Whisper White to make it pop. I searched through all of my flower stampsets and came across Mixed Bouquet. I used craft white for the flowers on the card base and on the BB, my wonderful Tim Holtz paper distresser to distress the edges of the matting, stamped the rose image with Black Staz-On and used my Marigold Morning Reinker with a blender pen to watercolor. Polished it off with a large polkadot brad, some ribbon and YES my giga scallop punch (i sponged Marigold Morning on the edges). The sentiment is from the It's Your Birthday stampset. I am quite pleased with the way it turned out! Check back for more goodies - I will be stamping all weekend. :)

Such a pretty card, and I just realized that I've never made a card using those colors together! That's my challenge today...I don't have Marigold OR that stamp set, but I'm challenging myself today to use Summer Sun and Black with some stamp set I've got. :0) Thanks for the inspiration!!
