SU Bring on the Cake

SU Simple Stems

I have been wanting to use the Secret Garden Framelits with the new SU Simple Stems, and this week’s Subtly Yours Challenge # 93 at the Dynamic Duos gave me the perfect opportunity.  I also had design inspiration from Freshly Made Sketches #126 this week.

SU Secret Garden with Bring on the Cake

I loved the blues and black on Karen Meadie’s Card for the MUSE Card Club Challenge # 36 this week. Her card inspired me to create a panel of flowers in hues of blues so I used my Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze Ink Pad to stamp the flowers. I decided on black solid rhinestones for my pop of black since my butterflies just were not fluttering for me tonight. I matched up my rainbow of blue inks with SU Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay. I added a simple sentiment from SU Bring on the Cake and that’s it for tonight, dear friends;)

Here is Karen’s lovely card:


SU Bring on the Cake

I just can’t go into Lowe’s without grabbing some paint swatches…I always have a cache of them in any purse or bag I am carrying…lol. Well, this last trip with my husband had me waiting quite a while so I thought about what colors ColourQ # 204 were asking to be used this week. So I picked up what I thought were the perfect matches in SU colors, and when I got them home- they were perfect matches. I was asked to make 3 birthday cards this week so I put out the colors before me and prayed for inspiration.

I decided to make some candles to showcase the colors. The Concord Grape candle looks really dark in the photo but matches nicely with the Pattern Stack of Striped Concord Grape in person. You really should stop by and see it…
