Another card "just because"...for me, it is a reason to celebrate!
I was inspired by the January Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge to use four colors on a card (neutrals don't count). I used the technique I saw on Jen's blog to create the orange background, then matted the rectangle to purple cardstock and adhered that all to a white card base. I stamped one sentiment onto a die cut banner in rose cardstock and then finished the card with a fussy cut green turtle and punny sentiment as well as some rose colored enamel dots. The images and sentiments are from Paper Smooches Party Posse stamp set. Something was still missing so to tie the cute artwork from the turtle in with the entire design and make everything "pop", I outlined all other elements in black. I like it better.
