PPA215... Happy Birthday to You!

Hey Everyone,

Today, I have a quick card using this week's color challenge over at Pal Paper Arts.  This week's colors are Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz and Basic Black - such a gorgeous combo, don't you agree?
08-14



 
I began with a Whisper White card base, and the layers are Basic Black card stock and patterned paper from MS Carnival Photo Mat Pad.  Using a rectangular spellbinder, the middle of the patterned paper was cut out.  The flower and sentiment were then adhered to the white case base.  I picked the beautiful two-step SU! Stippled Blossoms as my focal image.  I stamped the solid flower in Strawberry Slush ink and used the Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement to overstamp the outline flower in the same ink color.  I did the same for the leaves, but in Pear Pizzazz ink.  The sentiment is from IBS Small Fancy Labels 18, and was stamped in Basic Black ink.  A collection of pearls and sequins added the perfect amount of glam.

I'm also linking up to the City Crafters Challenge, Week 224 - Roses, Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday & Inspired by Stamping - August Customer Gallery.

Thanks for stopping by,
