Colourful Congrats!

Hi everyone, I'm having trouble with our nbn satellite internet again! 
It's so slow...
Anyway, I finally managed to upload a card so that I can play along with a couple of challenges. I did a blue and a purple version. 

These are retired Stampin Up sets that I was able to buy recently, so they are new to me, and this is their first inking.
Darnell is hosting another NBUS challenge to use your never before used stash of stuff! Perfect!
There's lots of great inspiration in the gallery, (if your internet lets you have a look!)

At Addicted to Stamps & More the theme is anything goes.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday also has anything goes.
(the graphic won't load!)

Distress inks in blues and purples; Stampin Up say it with scallops stamp and extreme elements star stamp;; versafine ink & clear ep; Mpress scallop die; Cuttlebug stars embossing folder.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Hi Cathy :) I love your cards and the colours you've used... the scallops really set it all off too!

Brenda in IN said...

Both colors are great and the embossing folder with stars is a perfect background for this. This is such a versatile card and a good one to have in your stash.

Fabulous blending, Cathy ... the colours pop brilliantly against the textured black base! Hugs, Anita :)

These are terrific cards, Cathy! Love the design and colors and I especially love the look of the embossed black! It looks like leather! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #9! Thank you, too, for your kind get well message! I'm doing great today and hope you (and your satellite) are, too! Hugs, Darnell
