Sorbet Birthday

This evening I have a card to share with you using this week's sketch at Pals Paper Arts.  It is also for the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers and the very fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge at Paper Players.  My card aligns with the left to right diagonal of the tic-tac-toe squares, as a birthday card using patterned paper and Pool Party ribbon.  

Coincidentally , the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers contains all the colors contained in the some of the Sweet Sorbet designer series paper, so that became the background for my card.  I also added "dessert" by using ribbon.  

I decided to make the top of the tilted panels into a tag containing the sentiment, using the Scallop Tag Topper punch.  I used a 1 7/8" wide piece of Whisper White, topping a 2" piece of Basic Black paper also cut out with the punch.  The tag was then decorated with the cork flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories Pack (only one more day to get it free with your Stampin' Up! order of $50 or more!).

The two horizontal panels in the sketch are represented by the ruffle trimmed piece of Sahara Sand and the Crisp Cantaloupe twine wrapped around the top of it. 

Thanks so much for dropping by!  I hope your week ahead is great!

Such a sweet card, Stef! I am really sad to see Sale-a-Bration leave. Your card incorporates some of my favorites. Thanks for playing along with this week's PPA sketch challenge.

Just lovely, Stef. I am severely challenged by 'tilted' panels, but you've rocked this!
