Clean & Simple for STB!

Happy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for our first challenge of 2016, here at Seize the Birthday, and there is no “Topping”, so the sky is the limit!

I always find Clean and Simply a bit of a challenge, especially since I like to add a little bling or some other embellishment to a card.  But today I managed a simple card and took inspiration from the colour challenge at Color Throwdown and the sketch challenge #252 at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. I’d also like to enter my card in the “Anything Goes” challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!

This was a fun colour combo to work with! I decided to go with lost of stars and sponged our challenge colours onto a piece of the Color Me Irresistible DSP.

To finish things off, I added a piece of the Silver Cord Trim and adhered the sentiment to a glittery star.

My fellow Design Team members have also created some fabulous samples, so be sure to stop by Colour Me….! and check them out. We can’t wait to see what you create!!! Antonia, Bhavana, Hayley, Jinny, Julia, Kim, Ren, Tara, Valentyna, and our Guest Designer for November, Deanne!

For some reason, when I saw Team Tara’s colour combo, I thought of stars and went looking for a star stamp set I thought I had in my stash. Turns out my memory was wrong and I don’t have one. Thank goodness for Star Framelits and punches!

The inspiration for the layout, comes from the current sketch challenge at CAS – Colours & Sketches, which, luck would have it, includes stars!
