Stampin' Up! - Color Coach Card #78 - Stampin' Up! Best Day Ever

Blackberry Bliss #3



The colours on my card today are the Color Coach monochromatic suggestion of Blackberry Bliss and Perfect Plum.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches. I like the big circle feature with the left and right margins. It called for a bold graphic stamp to me, so Best Day Ever seemed to fit the bill.

The little line under the sentiment is also in the stamp set....it is meant to be used to construct the flower stamps, but I used it as my horizontal component of the sketch. 

I liked how the Gold Soiree paper echoes the star Hodgepodge embellishment. It works beautifully together. 

My sentiment stamp is from Best Day Ever from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. This stamp is FREE with any $90 order! There's a tonne of other things you can get for free too. :)

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store. 

I worked out that if you bought everything you needed to make this card, you could earn 1 free Sale-A-Bration items (not including the Big Shot - that would get you more free stuff...3 SAB items + $50 in free hostess dollars to be exact!)

  1. Fabulous interpretation of the sketch! You're so right in that a bold, graphic card suits the sketch and you've nailed it with this one. I love the modern look of the stripes down the side. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
