My Pink Stamper Design Challenge

My Pink Stamper is having a challenge! Robyn is choosing new designers for her My Pink Stamper design team! I found this challenge... well, challenging. The challenge was to make a new project using orange, turquoise, green, and brown, which are not colors I usually use! That's what made it so hard. I used one of my favorite cartridges, Wild Card. The cards are fun and funky with some detailed icons and frames. My card is simple, because all of my designs are simple. I will post the recipe at the bottom. The orange icon was my inspiration for the project. I love swirlies! 
I made two of these frames, one for the outline and a turquoise one to fill in the frame. I really like the way the frame turned out. 

 If you don't have a Xyron... get one! I use mine all the time, especially for little pieces (such as the small ones used on my frame).

Here is my final product. Like I said... simple. I like the way it turned out. Here is the recipe.

- Basic 5 x 6 1/2 white card
-George and Basic Shapes Rectangle 6 1/4 inches (brown paper)
- George and Basic Shapes Rectangle 5 inches (green paper)
-Wild Card Stitched Icon (shift) cut swirlies on orange paper at 4 inches
- Wild Card Oval Frame (shift) at 5 inches. 
I used this step twice: once on brown, once on turquoise. 
I used the turquoise to fill the frame. 

If I had a My Pink Stamper stamp, I would have used that. But, since I didn't I used my swirliest handwriting and wrote "Happy Birthday". 

Simple. Easy. Perfect for busy ladies! Choose me Robyn!!
