Birthday Bouquet

Goodness - it feels like a long time since I've posted here, but it's only been a couple of weeks. Funny how, when you go away for a holiday, it seems to make your 'normal' life seem so distant. Anyway, when I came back and saw the colours at CAS Colours and Sketches this week, I knew I had to enter - I just loved them:
Added impetus was provided by Less is More's invitation to use a frame. I'd been wanting to try something a friend and I had discussed - using a square framelit to make a rectangular frame.
This is the card I ended up with:
Made using:
Paper: Stampin' Up's Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Stampin' Up's Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive
Stamp: My Favourite Things' Kitschy Kitchen
Dies: Stampin' Up's Stitched Shapes, My Favourite Things' Kitschy Kitchen and I'm not sure which bit of the last one is the name - so - Sizzix/Drop-ins/Stephanie Barnard's Celebrate Sentiments.


  1. Terrific way to combine challenges. Your brightly colored frame really highlights your image. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  2. Cool card. I like the black background paired with the blue frame. Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S!

  3. Love your make and the use of the striking blue for your "white space"


  4. What a fabulous, vibrant card! Loving the use of coloured card, and the sentiment really pops against the blue. It's a striking and stylish design - great job! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  5. Oooh! What fun use of colour and framing of your image. It certainly pops against that bold blue. A great design and thanks for playing along with us at Less is More this week. Sarah x

  6. I like to boldness of the blue and the way it's picked up by the bouquet. It looks as though you've made the extension from square to rectangle 'seamlessly'. Lovely card, Jo.

  7. Great idea to use the square framelits to make the stitch oblong one. That black background really makes everything pop. Thanks for joining us on this week's CC&S challenge.

  8. What an eye catching card! I love how you have really made the bold colours pop by using the black against the blue. Thanks for joining us this week at CC&S!
