Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Week 3

Happy New Year! Sorry that I haven't been posting lately, but with the holidays things have been a bit crazy.
For this week's challenge, I was inspired by the new Spring/Summer Collection catalog. The catalog is beautiful and filled with lots of new products and great sample ideas. If you would like to purchase a copy, please contact me.

I completed this card using only scrap pieces of cardstock and a few pieces of my new Ginger Blossom DSP. I also used the new stamp set Celebrate Everything. The color combo is Groovy Guava, Regal Rose, and River Rock. I chose them based on the colors from the Ginger Blossom DSP. I'm not totally sure that I like the look, but this challenge is about trying something new!
My card base is Regal Rose. I layered on Groovy Guava and then River Rock. I cut the Ginger Blossom DSP with my 1 3/8 square punch to make the perfect squares. I adhered those in a quilt type pattern and then stamped Celebrate at the bottom. I attached some Rose Ribbon (retired color I think) and last, I added a piece of chipboard colored with a Regal Rose marker and crystal effects and glitter.
Now it's your turn! Stamp something whimsical and fun!
