Let's 'Celebrate' Challenges

My second post today!! I am entering this card for two challenges and first of all can I say that the St.Luke's Charity Card Challenge site certainly have something to celebrate. It has now been a year since Tara set up the challenge site to raise money for the hospice who helped her during a difficult time and to celebrate they are offering a bumper prize worth over £50. They are aiming to reach 100 entries for the challenge this month which is 'A bit of bling' so why not hop over and enter a card.
I have to admit that this card was actually made for the Simply Stampin' challenge who are asking for creations using Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. This card has been in the making since yesterday morning, I kept having a go and then, after having coloured in the sentiment, couldn't decide what to do so it was put on one side. This morning I cut it out with the Top Note die and then it was tossed aside again while I made some other cards. Inspiration struck and I decided to use the Pennant Parade stamp set to make flags in the three different colours which were punched out with the Petite Pennants Builder punch and placed across the Top Note then the small star from the same set was inked and stamped off, using all three colours, and stamped randomly to fill in the gaps. This was then matted onto Wild Wasabi cardstock and layered onto a white card blank. The sentiment, also from Pennant Parade was punched out with the Modern Label punch and some Basic Rhinestones (a bit of bling!) were added to finish the card. Oh and by the way the 'Celebrate' was one of the recent SAB stamps but no longer available and the rest of the sentiment is a stamp from the Hostess set, Happiest Birthday Wishes
