happy birthday ~ MTSC60 & cQc19
For this birthday card, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #60 and as you can see I flipped the sketch to make a vertical card. I was excited to pair up Mercy's fantastic sketch with my friend's challenge, Arielle's ColourQ Challenge #19 using Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip & Whisper White...beautiful combination of colors, don't you think?
The Regal Rose card base measures 3" X 6" and is layered with Chocolate Chip & Sweet Pea DSP. The trim at the top of the card is strip of Regal Rose punched with the Scallop Trim Punch, layered with Close to Cocoa and tied around with Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon. The main panel and tage were stamped with the new Sale-a-bration set called Happy Moments, colored with Stampin' Write Markers, then blended with a blender pen before layering on Blush Blossom & Regal Rose cardstock. I wrapped up the bundle of packages with a piece of Linen Thread and attached a hand-cut tag, like a present topper. The embellishment was punched from cardstock using the Boho Blossoms Punch and put together using a new Chocolate Chip Epoxy brad from the Occasions Mini.
