It's Time to Bloom

This was a fun card to make, a clean and simple card, a style that I rarely use, but always love the result when I do use it! The CAS-ual Friday, CFC61: Let's Strip, was what got my card going...lots of white space with strips. There are two panels, both embossed with different embossing folders, the vertical strip was flagged at the end with a square punch. Though, the fishtail flag dies from MFT are definitely on my wish list.
The color explosion on my card was inspired by the Color Throwdown 200 using Pink Passion, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, and Tempting Turquoise. I had to dig and dig to find some retired Pink Passion:)
Jen's Sketch For You to Try worked great with the other two challenges and really helped me keep my card clean and simple, which is usually difficult for me!
Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for a new look at the stage coming soon!
Happy Sunday!

Stamps: Bella's Bloom Ink: Chocolate Chip Paper: Whisper White, assorted (retired) DSP Other: Big Shot, die, embossing folders, punches, button, twine Pin It
