Birthday Girl


Hello there!  Welcome to this week's Stampin' Royalty challenge.  This week we are hosting a color challenge, so grab your supplies and head on over to Stampin' Royalty to show us what you have created.




As most of you know, my favorite color combo is pink and green, but pink and orange is definitely second.  The white just pops off those two colors.  I love this single Happy Birthday stamp, it is called Beautiful Birthday, and I have to agree.  I stamped the sentiment first in whisper white craft ink then heat embossed with white embossing powder for a nice crisp look. 

It was die cut using the small framelit from apothecary accents framelit set.  A bit of whisper white stitched grosgrain ribbon adds a little flair, as well as some scalloped dotted ribbon in tangerine tango.


On to my favorite part of this card, the etruscan elegance wheel, I LOVE it, and that is saying a lot since I feel Wheel challenged!  This was stamped and embossed just like the sentiment.  I did trim it down a bit so that it was not so wide.

The base of my card is rose red, and the tangerine tango pieces were die cut with the window frames collection.  I just lined them all up and cut a bunch at one time to get the outline.

I used the current Mojo Monday sketch for my layout, I took a bit of creative license with it.

 

This card is going to a very special birthday girl, my sister Sheri. Hopefully she won't peek at my blog before her birthday, since this card is on the way to her now.  Both this card and the card that I made for her husband, my brother-in-law Craig are some of my favorite cards that I have made recently.  You will see his card tomorrow as my PPA challenge card, so head back here tomorrow to take a look at Craig's card.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you were inspired, enjoy!

Gorgeous card! I love so many things about it, and the first might be the strip embossed with the Etruscan wheel; your framelit background is ingenous... you do beautiful work!
