Turquoise Happy Birthday

Card: tempting turquoise, real red, whisper white

DSP: tempting turquoise patterned DSP
Ink: temping turquoise, real red
Stamp set(s): create a cupcake, siloutte sentiments, bliss

Accessories: brayer, 1/4" whisper white grosgrain ribbon, pearls, sponges

I decided to try the sketch challenge at Try Stampin' on Tuesday today. The sketch was quite simple, but one I enjoyed using to create this birthday card. I'm not in love with tempting turquoise, but with the little splash of real red and whisper white, it's ok here...! I stamped on the DSP to begin with, then brayered on the bottom of the whisper white panel and stamped the images and sentiment. I sponged around the edges of the DSP and whisper white in tempting turquoise, which gives it a toned down look. The inside panel is sponged with real red and a single image has been stamped on the corner. As I say, the ribbon and pearls make this "pop"!
