Sketch and Color Challenge Birthday Card


This is my second go at the sketch challenge for this week at Splitcoaststampers.  I have to say, I'm still not in love with it although it does look better to me this morning than it did at 9:30 last night :-)  I did turn the oval on it's side so maybe that is part of the issue.

However, I do love the color combo of Turquoise, Ruby Red and Cameo Coral. The last two are being retired.  Ruby Red so often matches DSP from other companies I'm sad to see it leave.  And I've always loved Cameo Coral though strangely I don't use it that often.  Fortunately, Papertrey Ink has a similar color.

Project Notes:
  • Instead of layering the oval on top, I cut it out of the Cameo Coral cardstock and used dimensionals to raise the cardtstock layer above the stamped Whisper White image.
  • The dessert option was ric rac. This one came from a grab bag at Hobby Lobby.  They have those in the fabric department and you usually get lots of useful ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by!
