Fab Friday Color Challenge FabFri136: Marquee Messages

Good morning!  I seem to be having a lot of birthday's this time of year so I'm in constant need of birthday cards.  It was the need for one of these cards that provided the inspiration for today's card that uses the Fab Friday color challenge.  I also wanted to get some more time playing with some items that are retiring before they go away, one of those is the Marquee Messages stamp set, it's got some great bold sayings and it's lots of fun to bling up.

For this card I started with Basic Gray cardstock for the cardbase and then used a piece of designer series paper from the Tutti-Fruitti Designer Series Paper (retiring).  The main stamped image was stamped with Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and then I used by Smoky Slate and Bermuda Bay Stampin' Blends to color the image, as well as a Lemon Lime Twist Stampin' Write Marker for the little "lights" and then I went over the lights with the Clear Wink of Stella.  Before attaching this piece to the cardfront I matted it with Basic Gray cardstock.

The final touch is the "party like a rock star" greeting (from the same stamp set) and was stamped in Basic Black ink on Basic Gray cardstock and then cut out with the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits and attached with dimensionals.  The final touch is a double bow tied with Whisper White Baker's Twine.

These colors are the perfect combination with the fun look of this stamp set and will help celebrate a  birthday to a tee.  I don't believe I've used this color combination before but will definitely be using it again.
