On Your Birthday: Sketch Challenge

Good evening friends.  So I know I'm a little late but today I'm sharing the card I made for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.  This card highlights lots of great items that are retiring, which means you only have two more weeks to add them to your crafting arsenal.  The cardbase is Marina Mist and I used the Beau Chateau DSP (retiring) for the three different printed paper layers.   I used the adorning accent embossing folder and edgelits to cut the elegant curves on the Crumb Cake piece.  

The main stamped image uses the On Your Birthday stamp set (retiring) which was inked with Soft Suede and Marina Mist Stampin' Write markers on Very Vanilla cardstock.    Then I took the Elements of Style stamp set and inked the floral image with Crumb Cake in and stamped off once before stamping it over the greeting so it coordinated with the DSP.  I also used Crumb Cake ink and sponged around the edge of both the Very Vanilla piece and the Pink Pirouette matting piece.  I used dimensionals to mount the stamped layer so it popped up.  The final touch was to use some Very Vanilla satin ribbon (retiring) for the strip along the back and to make the double bow with the Ice circle brad (retiring) in the center. 

Now check out the sketch we were provided, so versatile.  I love how this card turned out and am sad that it took me so long to use this DSP, it's so light and soft.  Make sure to check out other great creations for this challenge on the Stamping 411 website.

Enjoy the rest of your week and happy stamping.
