Oh Happy Day

I've got the next week off work so of course I have planned to do some card-making (along with getting the boys ready for back to school in a week).

Anyway, I thought I'd try my hand at the following challenges:  Color Throwdown; Seize the Birthday and Still AddInktive.

I decided to use Bloomin' Marvelous, which is a SAB set (Still AddInktive challenge) with the sketch at Seize the Birthday and the colors from Color Throwdown and here's the somewhat average result.

This is a notecard-sized card at 5" x 3.5".  The oval is the wide oval punch which gives some idea of the size of this card.

I stamped a few flowers in Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum, along with some leaves in Certainly Celery and Garden Green (stamped off).  After I'd cut them out I arranged them around the oval.  The DSP is Perfect Plum and Certainly Celery.  A few pearls finish of the card.

Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Bloomin' Marvelous
Cardstock:  Whisper White; Subtles DSP
Ink:  Basic Black; Wisteria Wonder; Perfect Plum; Certainly Celery; Garden Green
Accessories:  Wide Oval Punch; Adorning Accents Edgelits and EF; Basic Pearls

Ah, Karren ... I laughed at your "somewhat average" description! This is such a sweet card! Beautiful colours, and I love the delicate scale of it.
