I began pulling out cardstock and ink colors to match for the CAS Colors & Sketch Challenge #426. I also found the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is Anything Goes, so the following card will be entered in both places.
I followed the sketch using the colors Tangerine Tango, Pink Pirouette, and Peach Parfait. All of the cardstock colors were found in the containers inherited by my Mother, but she did not own the inks or markers for each of these colors. I did my best to match the inks and usable markers in other brands.
I used Gina K Designs Birthday Hoot set. I paper pieced the balloons with matching cardstock and colored the birthday hat and owl with markers. I struggle with leaving cardstock plain, so I added texture with embossing folders. I used Lifestyle Crafts Birthday set for the background and flag as it is a 2 folder set. I used the SU Subtle folder for the Tangerine Tango layer behind the owl. If course, the owl had to have googly eyes.
This is a fun card. I send quite a few birthday cards and have no idea who will receive this card.
