Color Splashed Congrats

I'm playing along with a few challenges today - feels like it's been ages since I've made cards for a challenge! Here are the challenges I'm playing along with (click on the images to go to the challenge websites):

I was so excited to participate in a couple of challenges that not only did I make one card, I made a whole set of encouragement/congrats cards:

I didn't have any bright blue card stock that I liked for what I had in my head, so I grabbed a piece of Neenah Solar White and covered it with one of the summer Distress Inks - Salty Ocean.  The color was perfect for what I wanted! 

To make the sentiment banner pop from the patterned background, I inked the edges with the Salty Ocean ink pad. And for those counting my layers for the YCU challenge - there's FIVE :)

It was a quick set to make and I can see lots of possibilities in all colors of the rainbow with this one!

Thanks for stopping by!

PAPER - Neenah Solar White, Stampin' Up! Basic Black
STAMPS - Lawn Fawn Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler and Good Gab
INK - Versamark, Distress Ink Salty Ocean
OTHER - Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle Dies, Zing Black Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Adhesive
