Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #398 ~ Color Challenge

Good morning friends~  It's time for a new challenge going on over at Cupcake Inspirations.  We're drawing near to the 400th challenge so you'll want to be watching for some fun and exciting prizes ahead.

This week's challenge is a color challenge:
Be sure to use the colors FERN, ROSE and STEEL
in your project or colors like them. 

Our sponsor this week is D.R.S. Designs 

They're offering 15% off your next order to the winner.

The generous folks at DRS Designs sent us two stamps of our choice and I chose this lovely Spring Crocus along with an Easter sentiment but I chose to use a birthday sentiment on this card instead because I was in need of a birthday card.  Thanks so much for your kind gift!  I know I'll be using this lovely spring image a lot!!

A strip of sparkly pink paper and polka dotted paper really help define the stamped panel.  
I colored the image using Copics and added some Clear Wink Of Stella to sparkle them up!  

I added a file tab sentiment and finished it off with some iridescent sequins.

Be sure to stop by the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog to see how my talented team mates were inspired and join in on the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

Donna Phelan and I think alike..... every time I go to leave a comment, she has written almost exactly the things I was going to write. Guess I have to be quicker at leaving comments on your blog (joking). When I saw the black dsp on the card, I saw how great it make the stamp become the center of attention on your card. I love your coloring of the flowers and the ground. Pretty, pretty, pretty!
