Bright Birthday Flower

 Life has been busy and it's been over a month since I last posted so I'm glad to finally have a bit of crafty time.  Today I'm playing along with the Paper Players and Time Out.  The Paper Players gave us a Tic Tac Toe challenge and I used the first column for my card - feminine, birthday, florals.  Time Out wants us to use a coloured card base.  I've actually been trying to use more coloured card bases in a bid to tackle my cardstock stash (ha ha!) so I appreciate the encouragement here.  I haven't used these Essentials by Ellen flower dies in ages but they are perfect for some bright and cheery birthday florals.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi, Coastal Cabana) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Sassy Pants Birthday 3) My Favourite Things
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Wild Garden flowers) essentials by Ellen
Other:  (Nuvo White Crystal Drops) Tonic

I love that bold and colourful flower Jen and the diecut piecing works really well. I love the coloured card base too - it really brightens your card. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!

This is so pretty, Jen. I recognized that flower die as one I have in my stash that is sorely lacking in love. Great color combo and love the simplicity of your design. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.

Jen, I love the bold pop of coral against the background. Such a wonderful, bright card - sure to brighten anyone's day. So glad you shared this beauty with us at the Paper Players this week
