Fab Friday Color Challenge: Big News

Good morning, I can't believe it's the start of another week.  Why is it that our weekends go so quickly, I guess it's all the fun.  I'm away this week but I still have lots to share with you, so I hope you make sure to check them out.  Today I decided to play along with this weeks Fab Friday Color Challenge.  This color challenge was to use all the new 2014-2016 In Colors.  I have to admit I really do like lots of color combinations with these colors but I wouldn't normally think to use all five in one project so I had to stretch a little here.  For the cardbase I used Blackberry Bliss and then added a piece of Whisper White cardstock and I stamped a rainbow effect along the bottom half of the card using the Chalk Lines Photopolymer stamp set (I love that this set is photopolymer so you have no issues getting them lined up perfectly and you can even bend the stamps to create fun effects.
For the main stamped image I used the Big News stamp set and stamped the greeting in Tangelo Twist and then colored in some of the letters with different colors.  I matted this with Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I used some Hello Honey 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and also added a cute little birthday candle that I stamped and then cut out with paper snips and attached it with dimensionals.
This turned out to be a really fun card that shows off all these great new colors, I'm so glad we have two years to love and play with them.  You should make sure to check out this blog and see all the other great cards the players are sharing, it's a great way to get inspired.

Have a great day and enjoy!
