Pretty Pastel Birthday

Hello!

When I saw the colours at The Play Date Cafe this week, I couldn't resist making a card. Added together with the sketch at Seize the Birthday, and I had a plan!
I used PTI Lovely Layers and Stylish Sentiments:Birthday. The inks are SU! Pretty in Pink, Orchid Opulence, Hero Arts Pale Tomato, and Ranger Archival Black. I textured the front panel with PTI linen impression plate.

I think I've found a new favourite black ink. Stamping the Ranger Archival Black onto vellum was the easiest EVER stamping on vellum I've done. Crisp, black, and no smudging. :-)

The colour story for The Play Date Cafe Challenge this week is so pretty.
The sketch for Seize the Birthday is so much fun. I've made a card using a similar sketch previously, but the end result was completely different!
I'm still fighting my cold. Today's a little busy. Tomorrow I plan to lay back and relax the whole day!

Thanks for popping by!

Gosh, now did I miss this one? I am a total sucker for negative die cutting, and this one is a beauty. You have inspired me to try something--yikes I can't wait. I love it when I see something beautiful on a blog and it sends me off to find my stamps.

Totally gorgeous!! Your off center circle is just lovely with the intricate flower!I just played with this color combo and loved it! ( Funny that I also used vellum without even seeing your card!)
