April 2024 Pinkfresh Challenge

I got my order of Pinkfresh dies just in time to make a card and enter it in the                                                                                 Monthly Challenge.
I was inspired by the colors of dark green and peach and decided to go that and of course, the circles. 
My new dies came in handy for that.  
On a white base of cardstock, I placed a die cut called Overlapping Geo Leaf die with the matching stencils for that set.  I used the inks from Gina K, Peach Bellini, and Altenew Forest Fern.
After using the stencil, I die cut several Circles from Pinkfresh Folk edge Circles and Braded Circle. You can get many different looks to these circles by using the different stacking dies. 

I decided to use two of the peach circles and one forest fern circle. I added a white circle behind and in the middle of the green one. The sentiment is from Pinkfresh, You Are Next Level Amazing stamp. 
I added some clear gems and to make them the peach color I wanted,I just used a marker to color a circle under the gem. 

April's challenge is Circles & Rings!

I think this could be a masculine card if I changed up the colors. 

I am entering this card in the Pinkfresh challenge for April 2024

SYB #281 Any Color plus Green

Time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday!
Nancy, our leader is the hostess for this challenge. 
She is asking us to pick a color, any color and add green.
Of course, neutral colors are allowed. 

If you are not into toppings, just make it a Birthday card! 
But if you use our topping, you may have a chance to be a quest designer. 

Here is my card for this challenge. As I needed a masculine birthday card, I went with this theme. 

I knew that I would choose blue to go along with the green for this challenge. I had already made a panel from Gina K Thick Brush stencil and used the poly-glaze foiling sheet too. That was my background panel. 
The die in the front is Spellbinder small die of the month, Gift Border
I die cut that from black shiny packaging. 
The bows are foil paper in green and gold.'
using master layouts from Gina K, I framed the card and popped out the gifts. 
Happy Day is from the same Spellbinder die. 

The team has more inspiration for you Here. 

Our Surprise Party Guest for the next two months is  Jolanda Johnston
 Melanie Hungerford is also with us as she was the winner from the last challenge.
