Floral Happy Birthday...Uniko Guest Designer, Uniko Theme Challenge~Flowers, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #307~Flowers

Hello!

Hope your summer is unfolding marvelously, whether you're traveling (as we are...heading home soon) or enjoying stay-cations.  

Today, I'm thrilled to be Guest Designing with Bev and her amazing DT over at Uniko




for this month's Uniko Challenge #34:


Oh the possibilities!!

Recently, Bev designed a "caught my eye', fabulous card that featured her Triangulate set. When her wonderful invitation to guest design for the flowers theme appeared, I knew precisely what I wanted to do: case her card just to 'see' if I could achieve a similar result with flowers.  Mission accomplished!  My card features the debut of my 'just for you' freebie that I received in a previous order...inked up in colours similar to those I know Bev loves, as do I...and arranged a la the style of her triangle pattern.  This card makes me smile; I hope it has the same impact on you!


The lines of the outline stamp are soooo wonderfully crisp; 
the solid stamps, wonderfully detailed! Pretty, plus!  Love. this. set!

I hope you'll bring out your flower images and play along with us!  All the details are at the Uniko blog, together with all kinds of flower inspiration from the talented Design Team. Please be sure to take a look; you will be soooo impressed!  

See you in the gallery!

Mission accomplished! This is most definitely an eye-catcher. GORGEOUS colors and a wonderful design; for reals! Love the black you've tucked in as it really makes your colored blooms just pop. And big congrats on the GD!!!! Will mosey over and see if I'm still in time...that is, if Mr. Mojo decides to cooperate. Have safe travels. xo Bev

Wow Carol, this card sure does make me smile!! Love the beautiful colors of summer on it, love the flowers and love the sketch. You have hit a home run with this one Carol!! Travel safe my friend, travel safe! My little get-a-way will be with my sweet teacher friends from school (all retired now) in Oct. All new teachers at school that I don't even know, so it's good that I resigned as well. lol Changes come around whether we want them to or not, but at least we are all still friends and enjoy each other's company! Hugs, Brenda

You've given me great inspiration, Carol. I have this set also and now I have an idea to use it. The colors are wonderful and the black outline adds just the right amount of grounding.
