Birthday Berries - Stampin' Up! Berry Blessings

   I haven't shared many cards made with Sale-a-Bration rewards and I really have no excuse!  I only earned a few rewards this time and as much as I would love to order enough to earn one of every item in the brochure the bank account just doesn't support that!  What I did earn; 2 SAB DSPs and a fun berry themed stamped set are just lovely and you'll definitely be seeing more in the next month and a half.

  The color challenge over at Color Throwdown was absolutely perfect to go with the raspberries in the Sale-a-Bration Berry Blessing set!  We're to use pink, blue and green.  I stuck with the bold tones that they show in their challenge logo and went to work!

  The coordinating free Berry Delightful DSP started me off with the fun blue plaid pattern.  I added this piece to a Balmy Blue card base after adding some retired white cotton ribbon across the top.

  I cut a Whisper White Stitched Nested Label die to hold all my berries.  I first stamped the sentiment in black at the bottom so I could see where everything else needed to go.

  The leaves are stamped in 2 different greens; the outline is Garden Green and the fill is Granny Apple Green.  I fussy cut them and set them aside.  The stems are also Garden Green and Granny Apple Green and cut out and set aside.  Then I stamped a few of the plain Garden Green stems under where I was planning to adhere the leaves so they would be peeking out ready for the berries.

  The berries are stamped with the outline in Melon Mambo and the fill also Melon Mambo but stamped off once.  I fussy cut them as well.  Don't worry about the fussy cutting for this set it goes quickly as they are pretty small images.  I also had a Netflix show on at the same time so no fear of it being wasted time!

  I added the stems to the berries and then arranged them amongst the leaves with a few being popped on dimensionals.  A retired Pacific Point enamel dot accents the sentiment for the final touch.

  Thanks to this color challenge for kicking my butt in gear to use this adorable Sale-a-Bration set!
