Birthday Bliss - Just Add Ink 57

Two challenges with one card. Yippee

Just Add Ink and SU Only

Well I suppose I am like most of you at the moment. Had enough of all this hot weather..... Just a little rain would be lovely. Anyway even though its very hot here I still had a chance today to sit down and do some challenges. I managed to make a card that fitted two challenges today...oh I am getting clever even if I say so myself. The first one is for the Just Add Ink, one that I frequent a lot as I just love what the design team come up with. Really gets my mind thinking. This week they set out a colour challenge.

The other one is for SU-Only Challenge. They asked us to use a stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

So with everything set out on my craft desk of I went. Here is my card I came up with.

I have used the above colours and the stamp set Bliss from the Sale-A-Bration catty. I also used Daffodil Delight Ribbon and the Hat Pin with pearls from the Pretties Kit (retired). In the top right hand corner I have used the scallop corner punch and placed some Cherry Cobbler underneath.
I have used the new shimmer champagne Mist also, here is a close up.

So thanks for stopping by and any comment is appreciated.
