Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #401 ~ A Color Challenge ~ Two Wishes

Good morning friends~  We've got a delightful color challenge up for you this week over at the Cupcake Inspirations.

You don't have to use cupcakes in your design but use the colors maroon, coral and lemon or colors like them to play along.

Our sponsor this week is Birch Press Designs
They're kindly offering up a $20 gift certificate to the winner of this week's challenge, so don't miss out on the chance to win!

Now on to my card:

I created a plaid background using MFT's Plaid Background Builder and added these beautiful flower from PTI's Brushed Blooms. I added some yellow stickles on a couple of flower petals for interest.  The sentiment is from PTI's Sentiment Splits.

I had a scrap of plaid left over so I turned to Pinterest  and came across this sweet card from my friend Marybeth found HERE.

I cut a wavy scalloped edge and used MFT's Fall Florals.  The birthday sentiment is an old one that's no longer in a set so I don't know what company it's from.

I hope you'll visit the Cupcake Inspirations Blog to see how my teamies were inspired and then join in on the fun.

I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:  
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

My first thought (before reading!) was how on earth did you find the perfect plaid with those specific colors?! Duh, make your own...she is a stamper after all!! Both of these cards are SOOOO pretty Birgit and I may have to try this color combo out if I get time this week!! :0)
