Stampin’ Up! Birthday card using Colorful Seasons and Color me Happy

I’m super excited today because my card was designed for the Daring Cardmakers. I am a guest designer for them for January and February – how good is that! Check out the other designers and what the Daring Cardmakers are all about HERE

This week we were challenged to make a card using this picture for inspiration:

And here is my card:

Stampin Up Color Me Happy and Colorful Seasons

I’ve used a Very Vanilla base for this card, and Pool Party for the blue.  I used two stamp sets – Colorful Seasons and Color Me Happy.

The little bird is from the Birds and Blooms thinlits, and the scalloped edge die is from the Seasonal Layers thinlits that goes with the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay blends for the lanterns, then added some Wink of Stella, but that doesn’t show up well in the photo.

I think this card looks quite peaceful which I’m pleased with. It’s not at all the card that I set out to make, but that’s OK, I’m happy with it anyway.

Don’t forget to come back next Friday to find out what the next Daring Cardmakers challenge is.
