I decided to combine 2 challenges and get to work using some In Colors. I used Global Design Project challenge for the layout and Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge for the inspiration of the colors.
This is quite a bright card and I'm still deciding if I like it or if I think it's a hot mess! Do you ever make a card like that? You look at it and think it's OK then look again and are like "what was I thinking??". Yeah, that's this card. At the very least you can get a good look at 2 of the new In Colors; Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach. I thought they looked good with Cucumber Crush.
The flower panel is stamped and then a length of Flirty Flamingo Ruched ribbon is wrapped around and then tied off with gold thread bow. I love this ribbon! It's just the right size for cards and not too bulky so it ties and knots wonderfully! I had to get all 5 In Colors! Next, I added a few sequins that were left over from my Enjoy the Little Things project kit because it was still out on my desk but the regular sequin trim would work as well.
The sentiment and banner are from Thoughtful Banners. The banner is stamped in Cucumber Crush and the sentiment in black. Using the coordinating Duet Banner punch I punched it out and popped it over the ribbon with dimensionals.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
