Global Design Project #045 | #GDP045 | Birthday Bloom Colour Challenge

Hello everyone! A happy Wednesday to you! I've had few spare moments this week just to play and create. Not to create for my Design Team commitments but to create just because. That doesn't happen that often. So with my kids at school, hubby at work I got some uninteruped crafting time today! Yay! I thought I would create for one of my favourite challenge blogs - Global Design Project, #GDP045.They have a fabulous colour challenge this week, bright and fun with a few neutrals too.

With these stunning colours, I thought creating with the Pop of Pink DSP would suit this challenge perfectly. I've only used a couple of the designs from Pop of Pink DSP. I did try and incorperate some of the other designs but sometimes less is more, right?  How gorgeous is the Melon Mambo sheet with the white polka dots? So pretty!

I heat embossed the floral image from the Birthday Blooms stamp set using the White Stampin' Emboss Powder on vellum cardstock. I then fussy cut out the image using the Stampin' Up! Paper Snips. Those things are sharp and are the best scissors for fussy cutting. I swear by them they are that good!

One of the banners on the top right is acutally from the co-ordinating Pop of Pink washi tape. I stuck a small piece of the washi tape on Basic Black card stock and then I used the Banner Punch to punch out a small banner. 

How fabulous does that 'Congrats' look cut out of Basic Black. I love how bold it is and how it jumps out right at you off the card. That is one of the words you get in the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies. I'm so loving the font of these words. I'm sure you will see them in more of my creations. Love them!!!
I hope that I've inspired you today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
