UDI Color Challenge 82

Hello!  I hope you all had a blessed weekend!  We celebrated my daughter's birthday on Saturday and Easter on Sunday, and it was a wonderful weekend!

Here is today's color challenge on the UDI blog.  That chair is so very bright.  LOL

Here is the card I created.  I used a previous UDI Sketch Challenge for the layout.  The card base is Pool Party.  The next layer is Whisper White run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The strip is Pool Party punched with the Scallop Trim border punch topped with Poppy Parade and a piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP from SAB.  The image is from Delightful Dozen.  I cut it with the Labels Framelits after stamping.  Pearls are the finishing touch.  

You can see what the other design team members created over on the UDI blog.

UDI Sketch Challenge and a Special Occasion

Happy Saturday!  Not only is it time for another UDI Sketch Challenge, but today is my baby girl's 14th birthday!  :)  I can't believe how fast time has flown!  It seems like just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital!

Anyway, before I get all mushy, I better show you what I made for her using today's sketch. First, here is the sketch.  I actually used the sketch just as it was.  I did change the butterfly to a circle, though.  ;)

Here is Lauren's birthday card.  The base is Naturals White card stock followed by a layer of Island Indigo.  That is topped with Daffodil Delight, Summer Smooches DSP and a strip of Island Indigo.  The sentiment is stamped in Island Indigo on a strip of Naturals White that I flagged with a square punch.  The image is from Easy Events.  I stamped it on Naturals White and colored it, then I added some bling. What girl doesn't like bling, right?  :)  Dazzling Diamonds cover the frosting, and the cake stand is painted with Illuminate Top Coat.  You can't really see it in the picture.  It's punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle punched and adhered to a 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch.  It's adhered to the card with dimensionals.  











I also made a Petite Purse to hold her birthday gift...money.   I love this new die!  The base is Island Indigo topped with a piece of Summer Smooches.  I added some gel pen stitching along with a Boho Blossom punch flower and a Brights Button.  The handle is attached with silver brads.  

You can see all the design team creations at the UDI blog.  Enjoy your Easter/Passover weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Curly Cute, Easy Events.  Ink- Jet Black Stazon, Island Indigo, Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Daffodil Delight.  Paper- Naturals White, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Summer Smooches DSP.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Petite Purse die, Boho Blossom punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, 3/4" Square punch, Brights button, Dazzling Diamonds, Illuminate Top Coat, Silver brads, 2-way glue pen, dimensionals, glue dots.
