Getting back into Card Challenges...

Hi all!  I'm so excited to play in a challenge after a long hiatus.  It really feels like forever since I've channeled any stamping mojo, but it felt good to dust off my creative cobwebs and stamp!  This is the card I created for the Taylored Expressions Challenge 142.  I finally got to play with my new Stampin'Up! goodies, too!  I had so much fun!  While Denver and the hubby were napping, I snuck into my craft room and put this together.  Here's the full card for you:
This is a color combo palette that I haven't really used, but I like the cool combination with the Basic Gray and the new SU! Pool Party and Calypso Coral In Color colors.  What do you think?  I also really LOVE the new border punch called Lace Ribbon Border and the Petite Pennants Builder punch is soo fun, too!  Hope you like it!  Here's the recipe for you:
{Pennant Parade Pool Party Birthday!}
All supplies Stampin'Up!
*Stamp Sets: Happiest Birthday Wishes, Pennant Parade
*Cardstock: Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Whisper White
*Inks: Calypso Coral, Pool Party
