Happy Friday!! I hope you all are off to a great start to your weekend. We will be celebrating this weekend with some cake and ice cream for our little guy. Our youngest turns 2 today and I officially don't have a baby in the house. (I just might cry... some more...)
So to cheer myself up, I have some awesome cards to show you today! It's the last Friday of the month which means we are casing our favorites! Simply pick a card from this month's challenges - a design team member's card or case one of the challengers cards - just make sure it was from June. :)
I am casing Anne Marie's card from TGIFC58.
Click here to see her card and leave her some blog love!
I loved the background of this card - the colors are striking and the (somewhat) ombre look really inspired me to make some cards with a similar sponged background look. I also decided to make a small little box to hold the note cards in.
The stamp set that I used for these 5 cards is the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I love the variety of sentiments and the larger floral image. I also wanted to incorporate the new in-colors and give you some options of inks to pair with them!
For the Dapper Denim card I used: Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim.
For (my favorite in-color) Sweet Sugarplum, I used: Pink Pirouette, Sweet Sugarplum and Perfect Plum.
Here I frayed the Sweet Sugarplum ruched ribbon and used the thread for my accent.
For the Emerald Envy card I used: Mint Macaron, Emerald Envy & Bermuda Bay. I love these 3 together!
For Peekaboo Peach, I used: So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral.
And last but not least, Flirty Flamingo. Here I used Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo.
I hope that you didn't mind scrolling through all of those pictures!! I hope that you enjoyed them. I would love to hear from you! Which color combo was your favorite? Or do you have your own that you like with the new in-colors?
I hope you join us this week over at TGIF Challenges! Check out the rest of the design team and look back through the month of June to be inspired! :)
Have a great weekend!
