Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge No 5 - Bonfire Night Congratulations

Sat 5 Nov 2016

Happy Guy Fawkes Day everyone!! While you're all out roasting chestnuts and writing your name in the sky with sparklers, I'm in Telford with all my lovely Stampin' Up! team and friends enjoying our On Stage Local convention. Photos to come.... Oh my goodness, are you in for a treat when the new Spring Summer catalogue comes out in the New Year! But in the meantime, I have a fab colour challenge for you. How could I resist a fireworks-based one?

Happy Guy Fawkes Night Colour Combo

The lovely Abbie of Polyspiral, who does my website for me, passed her driving test a few days ago, so I wanted to make her a congratulations card. Fireworks and celebrations go together brilliantly, right? So this card is for her, and I'm hoping against hope that the post has arrived before she sees this. Abbie, you're a superstar, and if your card isn't with you yet (bad Post Office!) then I promise it's on its way!

Sunshine Stamping Colour Challenge 5 Card 1

I just LOVED stamping this one - great fun! I trawled through my stamp sets and found every set I could that had a firework-y, starry stamp in it and just went to town. Random stamping, people - you need to try it! I faffed about for a while trying to find an appropriate sentiment, but everything I considered at first just lacked "oomph" somehow. This die cut sentiment from my beloved Sunshine Wishes thinlits set really is perfect though. I love it, and I just hope Abbie does too.

Here's a different angle, showing the rhinestones, 'cause you can't really see them in the main photo.

I'm dying to see some of your cards, so if this colour combination is calling to you, do send me your photos. You can add them to the comments on this post, or email them to me. I'll share my favourites in next week's post, and on my Facebook page, so that everyone can enjoy them. Don't be shy now!

As always, you can see a breakdown of what I've used at the bottom of this post. Click on any of the pictures for more details, and everything is available in my Online Shop. Don't forget to use the Hostess Code if your order is between £20 and £150, so I can send you a free gift.

Thanks for dropping in, and have a fabulous weekend! xx
