IB130 Happy Hello

Hi peeps!  Happy Thursday!  Are you ready for a new Inspired By challenge?  Here's our prompt and optional sketch for today:

Don't they look yummy?! Since I used popsicles on another card posted today, I decided to focus on all those summery COLORS in the inspiration photo as well as that fun sketch!  So here we go:

LOL, there's NO stamping on my card today!!  Just cardstock, dies and an embossing folder...oh, and a wee little gem!  I started with a Close to My Heart die called Multi Circle actually has twelve openings, but I trimmed it down to nine and diecut flowers in Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana and Blushing Bride to fit in each opening.  

I embossed a Whisper White layer with the Ornate Floral EF and layered it behind, then added a three-layer diecut sentiment in Poppy Parade, embellished with a little faceted gem:

I left the inside blank...I will stamp something when the occasion arises!  I hope you'll find some inspiration from our photo today and I hope you'll play along with us at Inspired By!  You'll find plenty of fun samples at the blog, so be sure to check it out!

Have you ever made ice cream in a bag?  Google it!  It's fun and easy...not quite the same as the real stuff, but it will do in a pinch!  There's a whole lot of shaking goin' on!

Thanks for popping by...enjoy your day and be blessed!

LeAnne, I'm still forgetting our Sketches! but I'm always happy to be reminded when I see your darling cards using them - I think I'll leave it that way, lol!
This all-die-cut CAS yet color-filled beautifully embossed card ticks ALL my boxes!

What fun, bright colored popsicles and flowers, LeAnne! Such bright, happy cards! Cassidy is becoming quite the card artist! I love the curve of the umbrella and her coloring of the dancer! The rainbow and sun add even more fun for a rainy day!

Love those fresh colours - I keep meaning to ask you, do you have to use inspiration photo and sketch or can it be either or for this challenge? I read the rules but couldn’t tell. Either way, a cute card!

Oh and I’ve never made ice cream in a bag - I’ll have to Google that one, I’m intrigued!
