Bright Bunch

After a minimalist couple of cards last week, this week I went maximalist (if that's not a word, it should be). Retro Rubber's Challenge 86 'Beautiful flowers' was an invitation to use lots of colour, and Freshly Made sketch's Challenge 336 provided me with a great frame. The main stampset I used was 'Beautiful Bouquet', which first appeared in the 2017 - 2018 catalogue.
The card:

Card Ingredients:
Stampin' Up ink,(Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Basic Black), card (Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Lemon Lime Twist), stamps (Beautiful Bouquet, Big on Birthdays for sentiment), dies (Bouquet Bunch), Brights enamel dots.
Other Products: Kaisercraft Paper (Oh So Lovely), francheville diamantes, Sizzix Thinlits (Jim Holtz Small Tattered Florals)


  1. Maximalist is certainly a useful word. Perhaps you are the mother of a neologism? Love the vibrant colours of your card as well as your beautifully composed bouquet. I think they'd make any birthday happy. Beautiful Bouquet might be borderline a year old, but your sentiment, from Big On Birthdays definitely qualifies. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge. :-)
