Big Birthday Wishes

I made this card for my granddaughter using two challenges:  MFTWSC143 and The Color Throwdown #261.  My card also qualifies for the current The Paper Players tic tac toe challenge - the middle row, patterned paper, embossing, any shade of blue.   I used Marina Mist for my card base and mats.  I added a white layer between the card base and Marina Mist DSP.  I used MFT Circle Stax Sets 1 and 2 and MFT ala Modes Big Birthday Wishes for the image and sentiment.  I stamped the image in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics.  I also stamped the pants on Pacific Point CS and her top on Pacific Point DSP and paper-pieced them. I sponged the edges to add a little dimension.  I cut her out and mounted her with foam dimensionals.  The balloons are So Saffron and Lucky Limeade CS and I also sponged the edges with coordinating ink.  The circle element is embossed with QuikKutz Polka Dots EF.  I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point ink and added So Saffron and Lucky Limeade (?) brads.
Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.
Happy Stamping,
