Flash Back Friday- Rainbow Sherbet

I found a package of DSP from long ago that had barely been touched.  I have to admit, this card was a bit of a challenge as the colors did not immediately appeal to me.  They must have at some point, but I'm not sure when that was...

One of my best friends and co-worker will be celebrating her 30th birthday soon and her favorite color is green, so I started thinking 'Can I make this work?'.  Here is what I came up with...

When I first saw the original brights from SU, I loved them.  They were perfect for scrapbooking the pages of my little girls.  Now, I am so glad they have revamped them to be more trendy.  I like the way this card turned out, but I'm also glad I don't have to use green galore on a regular basis! Talk about bright!!

I really did a lot of digging in the stash for this card.  I found a sheet of green galore and gable green in my 'leftovers' drawer, and some digging through my embellishments turned up an old container of the original brights buttons! Perfect!!  To balance out all of the retired items, I did sneak a brand new stamp set onto this card! Memorable Moments is such a fantastic set! It's perfect for those milestone birthdays and anniversaries and I love that it coordinates with the label framelits!  This set will be seeing a lot of ink!!

Hope you have a marvelous weekend and happy crafting!!

  1. Love how you have incorporated the old and the new. Whilst I love the old Bold Brights I definitely had trouble with Green Galore. I don't think I ever purchased a full pack of cardstock but I do still own the ink pad. Great card.

  2. I really love the label and eyelet border on this card. The green isn't too bright, it's cheery! lol Birthday's are suppose to be bright & cheery, right?
    Hope you guys have a blast next week!

  3. I would say you definitely made this work! What a fab card with the 30 front and center, that beautiful paper and lace scallop border. Have a great weekend.

  4. I think it worked GREAT!! Perfect card for a 30 year old birthday and love all the green too!

  5. what a cute card and don't you just love that new set?!? Love your details with those buttons. Fabulous as always!!

  6. I liked Green Galore and was sad to see it go like so many of the others ! I bet your friend loved this cheery 30th Birthday card made in her favorite color =)
