Birthday challenge ...

The folks over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps are hosting a new challenge on Friday's.  This week it is to use the word Birthday on your card.  I found the perfect sketch over at Pals Paper Arts.

Stamps:  Cocoa's Gift, Love From Cocoa (Sweet 'n Sassy)
Paper:  Perfect Plum, White, Sage Shadow (SU)
DP:  Bold Basics (Recollections)
Ink:  Memento Black, Perfect Plum (SU)
Accessories:  rectangle dies (Spellbinders), Copics, blender pen, rhinestones (SU)

Here is the sketch ...
I used the blender pen to color the box.  I wanted something that wasn't smooth looking.  I guess I got the effect I was looking for.  Hmm, been using that sponge dauber a lot lately.  This card will be going to my purple loving neice for her 20th birthday.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,

Look who just popped up on my reading list. Your card is so pretty in purple and green. Of course, the Cocoa image is just perfect for a birthday card. I love it!

Is it snowing at your house? It snowed a bit in the night here. A few flakes are still falling. Rooftops are white but the ground isn't covered...not even close. Wish we could get a big snow this winter.

Pam - these colors are gorgeous together. I love your interpretation of the sketch and how you've patterned the colors in the image with the colors in the patterned paper. Thanks for playing along with The Pals Paper Arts this week.
