Birthday Passionette- Fresh vintage SAB sneak peek

Hello there, how are you today? are you having a nice relaxing weekend? I am clearing out my stamp room this morning as lots happened in the last few weeks and is overdue for good clear out then later tonight I have a movie date with hubs.
Today is Louise’s Happy Day and I hope she will enjoy a fabby day spoilt with lots of lovely surprises.
Louise likes green and I started with some Lucky Limeade card stock.

and that’s where the green stopped LOL>I am not sure why but I just didn’t like the card if I tried adding more green which I thought it needed for a bit of balance. I tried adding in and couldn’t make it work so I just carried on without any more green, I do hope Lou likes her card Smile.
It uses THREE (talk about being excited about new product)  new Sale a bration items that you can earn for FREE with a order of £45.  I adore this year’s choice of Free stamp sets and I cannot wait to show you more.
The motifs are part of a set called Fresh Vintage and I let out a small squeal when I realised that they fit perfectly inside the solid layer of our triple doily punch, how lucky is that?  as soon as that light bulb went off I based my entire design around it. I love how arranging them in a grid created a wonderful pattern on the front of the card.
The sentiment comes from a set called Outlined Occasions and this is such a sweet set. Lots of colouring opportunities with this set. I used a two tone approach here, I used Peach Parfait for the lower half and then went over the top half with Poppy Parade.

Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pool Party all the *P’s* were the colours added to the lucky limeade base. A double bow in pool party ruffled ribbon topped with a antique brad completes the very symmetrical design.
What do you think? I do hope Lou likes it, I certainly do.
Right pop back tomorrow  as a few of us  Passionttes have organized a mini blog hop and you will get to see more upcoming SAB sets featured for you to choose from when making your wish lists.
Thank you for stopping by have a wonderful Sunday and big hugs xxx
