ColourQ - Teen Birthday

I added a touch of dazzling diamonds glitter to the butterfly and just a smidge to the flowers.

I am frequently in need of a teen girl's birthday card and this week's  Colour Q Challenge is perfect for those occasions. Even though Megan likes to make cards for her friends, with school, athletics and other activities she doesn't always have time to make them so it is nice to have a few on hand. This one is going in the stash. 

For this color combination, I wanted to use something with very simple graphics and paired some old items with new. Two new items I am very excited about are/is the new in-color Pool Party and the new stamp set Petite Pairs. I am finding that Pool Party coordinates with so many of the other SU colors and creates a bright, crisp look. I also love Petite Pairs for sentiments. This set includes 2 sentiments for almost every occasion, birthday, get well, sympathy, wedding, baby, Christmas, thank you etc. and the size is perfect to add with a stamped image. 

Stamps - Sweet Summer, Petite Pairs
Ink - basic black, tangerine tango, melon mambo, pear pizzaz 
Paper - Tea Time ( Simply Scrappin'), basic black and whisper white card stock
Accessories - scallop border punch, corner rounder, black and white gingham ribbon, melon mambo pom pom ribbon, glimmer brads, dimensionals
