FS60 - Happy Birthday


Today's Featured Stamper #60 is a fabulous, talented stamper named Laura Fredrickson aka "Scrapnextras" I absolutely love her work!!! Please stop by her blog and look at all her gorgeous creations!!!

I was inspired by this card Laura made.

When I started creating my card for this challenge I was trying to include the colors that Erika Shaw has chosen as her favorites - Cool Caribbean, Gable Green, Groovy Guava, Summer Sun, Really Rust and Tempting Turquoise.

Wow - what do think of those colors??? I must say I absolutely love them and I would have never in my wildest dreams chosen these together......,but I like how powerful the Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and the rest of the colors look together!!!
Hope you have a chance to try them....
Thank you Erika for these fabulous colors!!!

Here is what I have changed:

- I used flower stamps instead of DP
- I used Erika's colors
- I used a different sentiment
- I added gemstones to the flowers
- I used Tempting Turquoise Ribbon

The stamps I have used for this card are - Big Flowers, Big Pieces, Polka Dots & Petals, Always and It's your Birthday.

I'm still not done trying more of the color combo's you all have picked as you favorites - hope you will stop by again soon to see what colors I have choosen next....~TFL~!!!

This is a really happy, upbeat card! I love the main image - I was thinking how cool it would be to create your own dp and do a mass production of cards! That would be way cool!
