Happy Birthday Gorgeous Window Box card



My Stampin' Up order is coming tomorrow, and I can hardly wait to play with new products, but this weekend I told myself that I had to take the time to play with some of the "new" things that I bought in the past couple of months and have not used yet.  I know we all buy things that we are excited about, but the occasion to use them just has not come up yet.  This was one of those things.  I bought the Window Box Thinlets, and they have waited patiently for the occasion that I would need a pretty gift box.  Then I started seeing people using the thinlets for creating cards, so I had to give it a try.  


I had a challenge to use all five new 2017-18 In Colors on one card for our demonstrator meeting yesterday, and this is the card that I made.  I sponged behind the cut image with Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and Fresh Fig, then I used Berry Burst for the card base and Powder Pink in the flowers.  I wish I had some ribbon to add, but no In Color ribbon until my order arrives.  The little flowers I used came from Jar of Love stamp set and the greetings came from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamps.  This was a fast and fun card to make.  So easy I made it up 3 more times using different color combinations.  Can't share those with you, because I like to keep the surprise for the recipient when I mail a card out.  You get the idea, and I know you'd enjoy making this card yourself. I can help you with that.  Just let me know.  

I found my inspiration for the layout for my card on Inkspire Me Challenge #103, and I'm also going to play along with the Birthday challenge at the Paper Players Challenge #347.  
Stop back and see what I got in my order today as I play with new products this week.
