Birthday Wishes Color Challenge

 As much as I may long to get into my offudio to stamp and create, life (in the form of a Bit and a Bean) get in the way.  I finally MADE time to get in there (something I must do more often!) and managed to get a few cards made.  The first was a birthday card, the colors inspired by the color challenge over at the Paper Players.

The more I stamp, the more I realize my style definitely runs towards the clean and simple.  I adore looking at and admiring those cards that are more elaborate, but, alas, I can't seem to make them work for me.  :sigh:

So, I once more looked towards my CAS ways and a card was born. ;o)  As a SU! demo, I have the privilege of pre-ordering certain items, and this stamp set, "Pennant Parade" was one of those items.  I had a vision of birthday hats in my head, remembered I had some pom pom trim, and voila!

I'm absolutely tickled with how the card turned out.  :o)

This card uses:
*Stamp Sets: "Pennant Parade", "So Happy for You"
*Papers: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo
*Inks: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
*Accessories: Daffodil Delight pom pom trim

Such a cute card! I too have a roll of pom pom trim that I've been struggling with and this is a great idea for it. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players!

Absolutely adorable, Rach! This has quickly become a favorite set of mine and I just love that you have shared a fun idea with it. That pom pom trim is the perfect touch! I also love how you combined all the colors in the sentiment, too. Very cute! Thanks so much for joining us at the Paper Players this week! :)

I have a love for pom poms and polka dots. You can't go wrong with either one. So there! Your next challenge is to make a card with pom poms and polka dots!

Rach, this is - by far - the best use of the pompoms I have seen. What a fabulously creative way to incorporate the colors. Also... this sentiment set is perfect for the party hats.
Clean and simple and fabulous!
So glad you got the chance to join the Paper Players this week
