simply stampin' challenge week 53

This week's Simply Stampin' Challenge is a colour challenge. This week's colours are 

Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi

Spring Bunting

Stamp Set: Pennant Parade
Ink: Tangerine Tango
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight
DSP: Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight Paper Stack
Punches: Petite Pennants, Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty, Curly Label
Accessories: Rhinestones

These colours are very bright and there wasn't a neutral colour in there so I added vanilla to the mix and made this card into a cute bunting card! The scallop pennants are plain cardstock and the triangle pennants are paper stack dsp. On each of the pennants are cute flowers made with the boho blossoms and the itty bitty punch pack and finished off with rhinestones. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the curly label punch because I stamped the seniment really badly the first time on my card so this is a cover up! To add just a tiny bit more colour to the curly label I ran my marker around the edge. I added a couple more rhinestones and there you go - done! 

Did you like this clean and crisp springtime card! Why not head over the the SSC blog to see the other DT entries and enter your own creation - if you don't have the exact colours that's fine just use the closest ones you do have! I look forward to seeing your creations!

Happy Stampin',
