Birthday Opulence

Oh my, what did you think of Splitcoast's color combo this week? Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, and, wait what's the name of that third color? I have to go look it up, since I NEVER use it! Orchid Opulence!

But, no surprise, the combo grew on me, as these odd ones always do. It was an instant hit with my 4-year-old, however. She literally sucked in air when I showed it to her this morning. Gotta love an audience like that!

I glittered the polka dot background with heat-and-stick powder over VersaMark ink, then dazzling diamonds glitter on top of that.

Stamps: Birthday Whimsy, Polka Dot background
Paper: Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Orchid Opulence
Accessories: heat-and-stick powder, dazzling diamonds glitter, 1/2" circle punch, wide celery grosgrain, pumkin grosgrain, large oval punch, celery buttons, paper piercer, word window punch, dimensionals, nestabilities (spellbinders), white acrylic paint (making memories)
Supplies by Stampin' Up unless noted otherwise.

What a wonderful, fun card, Amy. I just love your design. I really like the punched out half-circles for the ribbon - I must borrow that idea.
