SFTW Pink and Green Challenge

This could easily be my favorite challenge. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge #14 is the color combination of pink and green.  That's one of my favorite color combos.  It's so springy and happy.  There's all kinds of pink and green papers in my stash, and there's lots of green embellishments too.  For me it's more a case of deciding what not to use on this card. 

I decided on a K & Co pad of papers.  Spring Blossoms is full of  floral designs in green and pink and they're already matched which makes things easy peasy.  There are two stamp sets used.  The flowers and Happy Birthday sentiment are from MFT "Flower Silhouettes" which has a die to go with the flowers.  Under the die cut flowers the floral paper is stamped several times with "Wish Big" from the MFT "Big Greetings" stamp set.  There's pink bling and brads and a green sparkler.  To top it off it's machine stitched with bright pink thread.

For some more inspiration stop over at the SFTW challenge blog and see what the rest of the design team created.  The cards are phenomenal, it will be worth your time to visit.  After you've enjoyed the eye candy it's your turn to use pink and green to make a card.  When you're finished don't forget to link it up.  We're all looking forward to seeing what you've made.
