Viva la Verve: Birthday Cheer

It's time for some birthday cheer!!  The current challenge at Catered Crop is "birthdays" so I figured it was a good time to add to my birthday card stash.  (This card is actually destined for my 95-year old grandma!)

Birthday Cheer

I'm playing along with the current Viva la Verve sketch.

In the third week of Viva la Verve, there is also inspiration photo.  I really didn't end up using it - but it did start me down this color path - greens, pink (although more coral in this photo) and a black/gray.  I just could not make this birthday card for my grandma work with the bold greens and pinks.

  • Stamps: Verve Stamps With Love (cupcake), Big Wish (sentiment)
  • Paper: Fancy Pants Memories Captured, MFT Whip Cream (it's just slightly off-white!), Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow
  • Ink: Papertrey Ink Smokey Shadow, Copics, Versamark
  • Accessories: Verve Pastel Sequin Mix, Stampin' Up Vanilla ribbon, Papertrey Ink Doily Details die, Stampin' Up Heat and Stick Powder, Martha Stewart Fine Crystal glitter.
