Work of Art #5 Birthday

Ok, last one of the series.  And I'm so tired right now that this post is going to be very short and sweet.  Let's get right to it.....

Stamps:  Work of Art, Gorgeous Grunge, and Endless Birthday Wishes
Ink:  Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay
Paper:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay
Accessories:   Big Shot with Starburst Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch (star), 2 3/8" Scallop Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, and Dimensionals
I kept the colors all bright and happy for this birthday celebration card.  The colors carry through on both the inks and cardstock pieces.  The stars punched from each of the colors add a festive touch.  And who doesn't like the touch of sparkle from the rhinestones on each star?

Have you seen this new birthday photopolymer stamp set yet?  Both the cake image and the sentiments are from the Endless Birthday Wishes set.  It's going to be one of those sets that gets used over and over again because of all the mix & match sentiments in it.  Love it!!!

The layering of the main image was finished off with the starburst in Crushed Curry. It just made the scalloped Melon Mambo layer stand out even more.

Don't you love the addition of the bits of speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge tying all the components together?  It reminded me of confetti at a party.  I had thought to add bits of the other two colors, but that seemed too much.  So this is it - 3 stamp sets and 3 colors to make the card.  Fun, fun, fun.  And that's it for me tonight.  I'm off to bed to get rewound and we start it all over again at 6am.  Ta ta...       Sharon
