TSOT208 and CCCB251

DSCF8315
Happy Wednesday, peeps!  The lovely team at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday has a wonderful sketch this week:
and the City Crafter Challenge has a washi tape challenge:
I needed a birthday card for one of my college roommates, and these challenges fit the bill:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Flower Patch Birthday Stampin Up
I used a card base of Pistachio Pudding and embossed it with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder.  I wanted to use some DSP that hadn’t seen a lot of use, in this case, Back to Black, and that wonderful photopolymer set, Flower Patch, stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe. I made my banner with two of the Sweet Sadie washi tapes:

I also used some Sweet Sadie for the circular elements, and stamped the birthday sentiment from And Many More:

Sequins and a couple of pearls finished it off!  It will be off in the mail tomorrow!

  1. I love the soft pastel colors mixed with black and white, so fresh! Eek! You got quite a bit of snow! Meanwhile, I'm nursing a mild sunburn... I'll be back to the snow in a few days!
