Congratulations Card for CQC Challenge #33

Tuesdays are so fun! I love sharing with you the creations I make for the Design Team at the Colour Q! We have a blast! Here's the color challenge for this week! The colors include Summer Sun (Retiring), Kiwi Kiss (Retired), Bermuda Bay (Retiring), Soft Suede, and Whisper White! I hope you'll get your stamps out and join us!
My card this week is based upon the sketch at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog! I love this layout! It's super cute! Flowers sprinkled throughout a card layout are always great! ;)
Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • I used the Stampin' Up! Boho Blossoms punch (my favorite flower punch - I use it ALL the time) and punched out flowers in Bermuda Bay, Kiwi Kiss, and Soft Suede card stock.
  • Then I layered the flowers together and adhered them to my Whisper White card stock!
  • The centers of my flowers are yellow brads from the Circle Fire Rhinestone brads! Don't they match great!?!
  • My ribbon is from actually the Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, but it looks so much like Summer Sun that I used it on my card!
  • I tied the ribbon in a bow, then attached a Summer Sun Corduroy button in the middle of the bow with a Mini Glue Dot!
