Happy Birthday to You - Color Dare Challenge #480 "Triple Play"

I was able to get into my New Year's resolution to use something already in my stash that had not been used... CTMH Festive and Birthday Borders.  I'll usually  create birthday cards as necessary, but with these stamp sets thought it would be nice to create them more generic, have them on hand and be able to personalize within the message.  The "Triple Play" Color Board was so easy to work with the Birthday Borders.  

Stamped the present borders in memento black ink directly on my card panel and placed them to meet the sketch requirement of banners in back of the sentiment panel.  The presents were colored with Copic pens in colors closest to the CTMH colors (Wisteria, Wild Berry, Capri). The inked in area of the stamps took away the bright colors of the board and have learned for the next time with this type of stamp it might be better to use grey.  This panel was layered with black and adhered to the A2 card base.  

The candles were stamped, colored with Copic, adhered to the Wild Berry sentiment panel, layered on black cardstock, centered and panel adhered to the presents panel. Using black ink the sentiment was stamped on a curve, fussy-cut, layered with black cardstock and added to the bottom of the candles with 3D thin foam tape for dimension.  

Inside of Card:  The balloon border and "wishing you..." sentiment from same stamp set were stamped on the bottom border.

What a cool version of the sketch to get the look but without using the paper strips, Its perfect. Love the colours for a generic birthday card.

What a wonderful interpretation on the sketch. Those beautiful, bold colors really do make the card stand out. Thank you for sharing your wonderful project with us at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and hope you are able to join us again soon!
