Stippled Blossom Birthday Wishes, CCMC34 & MOJO359

Hi, Friends! As you can see I have been alternating between inside and outside pictures lately. I do prefer natural light, but it is always so breezy here on Long Island that sometimes I have to catch the card before it blows away! I'd love to hear which you prefer.

Today's card was inspired by two challenges. I love the inspiration photo for the Colour Me challenge. Those Pyrex pieces are so retro! 

I also love this kind of a layout, this week from Mojo Monday. Plenty of layers, but you can keep it clean or shabby it up, what ever your heart desires. 

The first two colors in the color challenge layer up perfectly with the two step stamp set, Stippled Blossoms. The blossom colors are Crisp Canteloupe and Calypso Coral. Lost Lagoon has a bit of a green hue to it, so I thought it worked well for the leaves. I stamped off the first layer off for a lighter shade.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Petite Pairs
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crisp Canteloupe
Designer Series Paper: Gold Soiree
Ink Pads: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon
Markers: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Lost Lagoon
Tool: Big Shot, Modern Mosaic EF, Circles Framelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Piercing Tool & Mat

Have a great day!
