Happiest of Birthdays

Hi there and welcome back!  Tonight I'm sharing my weekly sample for the Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  I hope you'll use the link below and join us in the fun! Barbara has a beautiful choice of colors this week, some of my favorites together - Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.  I've used the fabulous sketch from the current challenge at Fab Friday for my card layout.  Be sure to visit their blog and check out all the wonderful inspiration!

I went digging through my hoard stash of retired designer series paper to find various patterns in the challenge colors to use for the base and the banners.  The horizontal piece of Thick Whisper White (also used for the base) was cut with the Eyelet Border punch, stamped with the sentiment and dots and wrapped with the GORGEOUS Pool Party Glitter Ribbon now available in the current Occasions catalogue.

I used a Stampamajig to position the sentiment so I would have plenty of room for the ribbon.  After everything was adhered to the base, a flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack was used to punch out three Wisteria Wonder flowers and added them to the panel, along with rhinestone centers.

Thanks so much for taking a look!  As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Don't forget to use the links above to check out all the great creations and join in!
