Birthday Wishes

Happy Thursday friends.  We have a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this week our "Toppings" option is use coloring on your birthday project.  You can find all the details for our challenge here.  Remember our challenge ends on May 17th.

I have had this stamp for quite awhile, but this is my first time inking it up.  I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Promarkers.  I used 3 shades of pink and 2 shades of green.  The centers are yellow.   I really like the way it turned out.  I punched the corners with the new 3 corner punch from SU and matted it on black CS.  I mounted it with foam tape.  The scalloped mat is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20 and the sentiment flag is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 21.  The sentiment is from SU Occasional Quotes.  The pink DSP is from an older Pebbles Garden Party 6x6 pad.

Make sure you check out all the fabulous creations by the designers over at Seize the Birthday.  I hope you will join us this time.  Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
