Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Color Sketch: Big on You

 Happy Monday!  WOW what a great day yesterday.  Had a great stamping class in the afternoon, boy was the paper, ink and glitter flying as we made Valentine's with the kiddos and then the big game (I love when the games are close and this was a fun one, even for non-football fans).  Now it's time to get started with the new week, so what better way to start that when this month's color challenge over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog.  I love color challenges as they really help get you to try new things that you wouldn't normally consider.  This is a big time for birthday's for my family and friends so I decided to use this challenge for friends birthday card.

I started with Tangelo Twist for the cardbase and then added a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  For some extra fun I used the Mosaic Madness stamp set to stamp an image inside each of the embossed shapes using the Coastal Cabana ink.

The greeting is from the Big on You stamp set and is stamped on Whisper White cardstock with Tangelo Twist ink before matting it with Coastal Cabana cardstock (this stamp set is so awesome since you can really let your greeting be the focus and make cute cards in a flash).  The final touch was to add a bow tied with the Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine (I actually use two pieces of the Baker's Twine for a double bow).

This card such fun colors and you could use them for either a boy or girl card so they are super versatile.  Make sure to go check out the other cards the design team is sharing for inspiration, they are awesome and come play along and share what you come up with.
