Embellish Birthdays Color Challenge

Well I was finally able to break away from the computer to get my stamp on...and man was it fantastic! LOL It had been a whole week since I had gotten any ink on my hands and it was time. So I headed over to Embellish Magazine to see what the latest challenge was and if I was in time to participate. And I was in luck. A birthday challenge using the colors pink, blue, green and brown. Admittedly, not my usual color combo, but hey, there is pink...so you know I'm there. I pulled out Funky Flowers and the next thing you know, I was done!

I used one of the flower tops and stamped repeatedly to create the bold geometric background. The bold pattern really compliments this bold color challenge well. I added some buttons threaded with twine to break it up a little and used the "Happy Birthday" and "Friend" sentiments from the same set.

Great news for those of you who have placed orders, I'm getting delivery confirmations already! So look for your sets to be arriving over the next couple of days. I can't wait to see what you guys create! Hope you enjoy and are having a great week!
