Celebrate ...

The current challenge over at The Play Date Cafe (#86) is a Color Challenge.  Check out the cool inspirational photo they provided this week.

And here is my Celebration card.
I pulled out the Teeny Star Background that I just got in the mail from DeNami Design.  This stamped up so nicely that it will probably become a favorite.  I have several other DeNami stamps that it will go great with, and I'm also thinking Christmas.  I know that is 6-months away, but it will arrive before we know it.

Okay, back to this card.  The sailboat was inked up with my Cobalt Blue Big Brush, stamped onto some orange scrap, and fussy cut it out.  The sentiment was inked up with my Big Brush, stamped it on some more scrap, and punched it out with my EKS.  Layered all of the pieces together,added on some ribbon, then popped on the sentiment and sailboat with dimensional squares.  The last step was to add a star gem and color it with my Big Brush.

I will probably give this to my son for his birthday on July 6th. 

Hope my design inspires you to go forth and create.

Thank you for stopping by!
