SC276 Happy Birthday




Hello Peeps!!!

Today's card is made with this week's sketch on Splitcoast.

I had this image colored already before I looked at the sketch. I used pumpkin pie, old olive and melon mambo to color the flowers and leaves. I stamped them onto watercolor paper with black stazon and used my aqua painter to color them in.

The card base is melon mambo and I followed that with pumpkin pie card stock. The DS paper is from the Razzleberry Lemonade paper pack. I used a cuttlebug EF on melon mambo card stock and matted with pumpkin pie. I made the strip across the center with more melon and pumpkin card stock. I used the scallop edge punch on both sides of the pumpkin card stock and added piercing in the scallops. I then added another piece of melon and a pumpkin brad on each side.

The main image is matted with melon and pumpkin again, and is added to the base with dimensionals. The sentiment comes from the SAB "Vintage Labels" set and is stamped with pumpkin pie ink onto whisper white card stock. I punched it out with my 1 inch circle punch and then used my MS circle cutter to cut out a 1-1/8 inch pumpkin pie mat. I added another pumpkin pie brad and added it t the card with more dimensionals.

My final embellishment is a spiral clip with two pumpkin pie ribbon knots.

Well, that is it from me today, thanks for coming by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
