Happy Birthday - 2 challenges

Hi, I'm sharing a card I made today for 2 challenges.

Dynamic Duos Color Challenge DD#48 - Bashful Blue & Pumpkin Pie

Unscripted Sketches #206

I have to admit, when I saw the challenge colors for Dynamic Duos I wasn't sure if I could combine those two colors without the pumpkin pie dominating my card. 

Well, I think managed to "tame it", by using BB for my main panel and using PP as an accent.  Yes.  I'm liking the results!  As for the sketch, I placed my sentiment panel a bit differently than the sketch showed.
See those banners?  Those are from Stampin' Up!'s first clear photopolymer stamp set.  Each of the tiny stamped images inside the banners are also from that set.  Always fun to play with new stuff.  Right?
Anyway, both the sentiment panel and the banners are popped up with foam tape.
Thank so much for taking a look.  I appreciate your visits!

Cardstock: pumpkin pie, whisper white, bashful blue (SU)
Ink: bashful blue (sponged onto the sentiment panel), basic black (SU), onyx black (versafine)
Stamps: framed fonts (Avery Elle), designer typeset (SU)
Die: labels three (Spellbinders)
Other: blue gems (The Paper Studio), foam tape, craft sponge


  1. Hey Susie, it's so nice to have you playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches this week!
    You absolutely rocked the sketch and the color combo from DD#48. The Pumpkin Pie is perfectly happy to let the BB shine through on your card. I love the banner and of course, the label die with the plethora of happy wishes looks perfect tucked where it is.

    Your work is absolutely perfectly flawless with an amazing sense of balance and design :)
