Get Well Toucan - Stampin' Up! Bonanza Buddies - Fab Friday 183

  The team at Fab Friday Challenge is back with another great challenge to start your weekend stamping off on the right foot!  We have a versatile sketch this time around.


  My card is a straight up interpretation of the sketch and highlights a smaller stamp against some pretty colors and a fun texture.


  My colors started in a completely different place but ended up with these soft pink/peaches with a pop of black.  The card base is Whisper White thick, then a layer of Petal Pink embossed with the Coastal Weave embossing folder.  I anchored the 4 corners with some retired black brads to help tie in with the narrow black flag and the toucan (and to use up some hoarded stash!).

  The DSP is a pattern in the Birthday Bonanza DSP and is a nice subtle mix of Grapefruit Grove and Terracotta Tile.  The colors are muted so they compliment the Petal Pink nicely.

 I adhered the stamped and die cut toucan onto a Whisper White stitched circle.  His/her beak is colored with Light Pumpkin Pie, Light Daffodil Delight and Light Calypso Coral.  The hearts are cut with the Detailed Hearts die and colored with a combination of Light Pumpkin Pie and Light Calypso Coral for a near perfect match of Grapefruit Grove.

  The 'Get Well' is from the Well Said stamp set and is sized just right for the smaller toucan image.

  I can't wait to see your creation in our Fab Friday Challenge gallery so get to stamping and show us what you've got!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
