Celebrate In Style - Colour INKspiration Challenge #145

Hello and welcome to another Colour INKspiration Challenge. We have such bright and fun colours to play with for this Challenge and I can't wait to see what everyone has created.  The inspiration photo was chosen by fellow Crew member, Cheryl Miller and our Guest Designer for this Challenge is the lovely Vicki Allanson.

My card features two Die sets and has no stamping at all.  I've teamed the Stylish Shapes Dies and the Wanted To Say Dies with the Gorgeous Gingham Designer Papers for a fun card which could be used for any occasion - birthday, graduation, anniversary, just to name a few.  

Because the Gorgeous Gingham paper comes in 6"x 6", I took a sheet of the Blueberry Bushell design and trimmed it in half and used this to create a custom-size card base measuring 7" x 8" scored at 4" along the 8" side.  The two cardstock mat layers were both trimmed to 6 1/8" x 3 1/8" and all three were glued together at different angles.  

Circles in the three colours were die-cut using the three smallest circle dies and arranged across the top layer.  Using  the Wanted To Say Dies, the word 'celebrate' was die-cut in Basic White backed with a piece of Adhesive Sheet and the co-ordinating shadow was die-cut in Vellum. This was glued to the card topper with Liquid Tombow lightly applied with a sponge.

The topper was then attached to the card front using Black Dimensionals.  To finish the front, I added a few of the Loose Silver Sequins which adds a subtle embellishment.

To complete the card, I glued a few left-over circles to opposite corners on a piece of Basic White cardstock and glued this to the inside.
