Birthday Violets

This card is for SCS Sketch Challenge #223. I love this sketch!!! Just right for a small image.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and DP from the Sprout 6 x 6 pack from Memory Box. The next element is Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Pale Plum. It's hard to see in the picture, but I made vertical embossed lines with my Scor-Pal on the Pale Plum panel. The next element is Chocolate Chip, Pale Plum, and more DP. The focal image is a Karen Lockhart stamp called Violet Cupcake. It was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). I added some shimmer to the flowers with my Sakura glitter pen, cut/embossed it with a square Nestabilities die and layered it on Old Olive and Chocolate Chip before popping it up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages and was stamped on Whisper White with Memento Rich Cocoa (the layers should be pretty self explanatory) and is up on foam squares. Orchid Dew Drops for balance and it's done!

Thanks for dropping by!
