Make a Wish...

Playing with new stamps from Verve's last release {some recent busy months at my house and hadn't had a chance to ink some sets yet, I know shameful!!}. Used Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge of marina mist, black, so saffron, white, and crumbcake- these colors are gorgeous together!! Jen's sketch from this last week SFYTT and it also meets the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge to make a b-day card!! Whoa.... 3 in 1!!

The balloons were stamped on marina mist and so saffron. Struggled with "decorations" and ended up pulling out some "old faithfuls"- SU Itty Bitty Backgrounds and Background Basics- thought they worked perfectly!!?? The balloons and sentiment are from Verve's Birthday Bash and the angled panel with the beautiful scrollwork is from Verve's Fabulous You!!

Here's the sketch and colors...
