Bloomin' Marvelous for Fab Friday

Hey there, stampers! Thanks for stopping by today! It is time once again for a new Fab Friday challenge. We have a pretty color combination that is perfect for springtime! Check it out...

Now, I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of Pink Pirouette. I have hardly ever used it, but I do think it is pretty in this combination and I don't think any of our other pinks would have worked as well. Calypso Coral is a color that had to grow on me, but now that I have used it for almost two years, I really like it and will miss it when it retires with the current catalog. :-( Here is my card using these pretty colors. I hope you like it!

Stampin' Up Supplies:
Stamps: Bloomin' Marvelous
Paper: Sahara Sand, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Fan EF, Adorning Accents Edgelits, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Bitty Butterfly punch, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Basic Pearls, dimensionals

I hope you can see the Pink Pirouette butterflies on my card. It is such a light shade of pink that my camera had a hard time picking it up. We made a simpler version of this card at a recent class and I just stepped it up a bit for the challenge. The only additions were the Adorning Accents Edgelits and all of the pearls. If you are looking for a way to dress up a card, our pearls are a wonderful and inexpensive way to do just that! I think this would make a great springtime wedding card and this sentiment from the Sale-a-Bration set, Bloomin' Marvelous, is perfect for a wedding.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to swing on over to Fab Friday and play along with us! You have almost two weeks to enter your creation. This challenge closes on March 28th. Also, be sure to visit Justin Krieger's blog to welcome him as the newest member of our design team. Welcome aboard, Justin! Pin It

Great spring card! I can see the PP butterflies, no worries! I liked the popped up one and all the pearls! TFS!


Very cute, Marla. I love the embossing and borders! I can't believe I didn't get that set.
