SCS Color Challenge - Birthday

Another SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge card for today. This one is #208 and you can find the link here. The colors are Kiwi Kiss, Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip.

I'd been playing with this stamp a little bit, and it was out on my table, so I thought I’d give it a try. It's by Anna Griffin. (I had been using Old Olive, Cameo Coral and Creamy Caramel, previously. I did finish a card with those colors that I will be posting soon.) I colored the stamp with markers - Old Olive, Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip. After stamping it, I used a blender pen to spread the color a little bit to the white areas. I used Rectangle Nestabilities to cut the image and the mattings. I embossed the bottom layer with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and I sponged Kiwi Kiss on the edges. The 'frame' on the card front was embossed with a Nestability, also. I thought I was going to actually make a card without using my Scor-Pal, but I couldn't do it! It just looked a little too 'top-heavy' without the little trim piece of Kiwi Kiss and scoring on the bottom. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin’ Up! set called All Occasions and I used Chocolate Chip to stamp it.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
