Happy Birthday Gorgeous: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello my friends and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. We are a group of 20 demonstrators selected by Stampin' Up! from all over the world to share with you. If this is your first visit to my blog, I'd like to welcome you to Canada

This week our blog hop features the brand new Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle, and WOW it is a stunner! As you can see on the front of my card, the big and beautiful die is absolute perfection. An incredible font, and the perfect size for cardmaking - love it!
On the inside of my card I've used the co-ordinating stamp set. You are going to find LOTS of awesome stamps in this set. I think I've already inked up over half of them! It also coordinates with the Balloon Punch, so that's awesome. 
Now let's talk colour combinations for a moment, shall we? When I was creating this card I immediately reached for my new favourite colour, Lemon Lime Twist. I then decided that I'd like to incorporate a few more of the new In Colors, so Powder Pink and Berry Burst were added. I knew I wanted Bermuda Bay, so I threw that in. But then out of nowhere I saw Peekaboo Peach on another project in my studio and bam! I think this colour combination is surprising, yet oh so fab. I hope you'll try it out.
