Stampin' Up! Splendid Thoughts Celebration Card

Today I've used the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set and Very Best Occasions Stamp Set to create my card for our Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop and for my third week as Guest Chick for the Krafty Chicks Challenge. It's a weekly challenge with this week's challenge being hosted by Diane and it's a CAS theme. I don't usually do CAS but I'm happy with this...

Here's the color challenge.

My card base is Merry Merlot cardstock. I took a piece of 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White cardstock, put Post It Note Tape on each side and sponged the "middle" from top to bottom with Merry Merlot, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride inks. I removed the tape and stamped the "ginko" from the Splendid Thoughts in Mossy Meadow. The sentiment, also from Splendid Thoughts, is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. I adhered the panel to the card front with liquid glue.

For the inside...

I sponged a 4 1/4" x 1/4" to match the front. The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set, stamped in Mossy Meadow ink. The bee is from Splendid Thoughts, stamped in Basic Gray ink.

Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Karen K (a/k/a TOK-the other Karen!). Clicking on the names listed below will take you directly to team members and their projects.  I hope you enjoy all the creativity. (Note: There is a time difference between the two challenges. So, depending on what time you are visiting my blog, the HIT hop does not go live until 9 AM! The Chicks went live at 2 AM!! I hope you'll pay them a visit and enter a card.) Thank you for stopping by!
