Have you used Glossy White card stock lately?  I know I haven’t.  But it was one of the very first things I was shown when Stampin’ Up! was first introduced to me.  Remember the rainbow ink pads – we used one of those with Glossy card stock and it was a real wow all those years ago.  Well the rainbow ink pads are no longer in our catalog (I’m not sure if they are still around elsewhere) but the Glossy card stock still is.

I was working with it for a project I am creating for the Ustamp with Dawn & Friends Paper Parade class and had a piece lying on my craft table when I pulled up this weeks UDI Color Challenge.   So you know what day it is – Tuesday.  Ryan was hoping it was already Wednesday – he is in Driver’s Ed school this week – all day long for 4 days in a row and he was ready to be done before it even got started.

Well let’s move on to the color inspiration that Gretchen picked our for us this week so I can show you my card.

How is that for some bright inspiration – Peach Parfait, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight.  What to do with that I wasn’t sure….but I remembered that piece of Glossy White card stock on my craft table and pulled all my ink pads out in those colors.  I needed a stamp set but which one – the inspiration piece has a lot of circles so I decided on Circle Circus.  And that I would just make a colorful birthday card.  So here is the result –

I stamped the Happy Birthday with Jet Black StazOn and colored it in with Stampin’ Write Markers.  The rest of the Glossy White is stamped with the various circles from Circle Circus in the different challenge colors.  It is all just random.  Then I layered it on a piece of Garden Green card stock, tied a piece of Peach Parfait ribbon around and attached to the base which is Peach Parfait.  Really a quick and simple card.
