Happy Friday! TGIFC149

Thank God It’s Friday and time for a color challenge!  The color combination this week is Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, and Gold!  Those colors just scream ST PATRICK’s DAY so I went ahead and created an St. Paddy’s Day Card.  I just received the Blossoming Basket Bundle, a Level 2 Sale-a-Bration Item, so I was itching to ink it up and play.

March is the final month to earn FREE Sale-a-Bration Items.  With the Level 2 Items (FREE with $100 Purchase), Stampin’ Up! has done a wonderful job stepping up the offerings!  I LOVE the Blossoming Basket Bundle!  The Basket Weave Embossing Folder is phenomenal and the Blossoming Basket Stamp Set coordinates perfectly!

The coloring of the flowers was so much fun.  I went over parts of the petals several times with my Lemon Lime Twist Ink, allowing it to dry before adding more color. I love how easily it is to add shading with the Lemon Lime Twist.  I colored the center of the flowers with Emerald Envy and the basket with Soft Suede.
