Hello, and welcome! It's Chic Challenge day. Today's card is also a sneak peek into some fabulous new products that will come out with the new catalog, May 31st. Each year, Stampin' Up! introduces five new "In Colors". They do a lot of research to come up with the most current color trends so you will probably see these colors all around you. I have used the lusious Strawberry Slush for this card. The images come from one large background stamp called Wildflower Meadow. I just used a portion as it stamps 5 -5/8" x 4-1/8" There is a coordinating embossing folder. If you look closely at the flowers they are embossed. I also added a bit of Dazzling Details to the center of a few flowers. I love the way it came out.
There are still a few weeks left to order from the current catalog. Although there are tons of fabulous new products coming out, it will be sad to see some of the retiring items go away. Be sure and check the retiring list, and order soon if you don't want to miss out.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy our Chic Challenge, and that you create something beautiful using our sketch. Have a great day!
