I created this birthday card using this week's sketch at Sketchy Colors.
For my color combination I used the photo inspiration from the current challenge at Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge. I chose to use all 3 colors pink, blue and red. Plus I used hearts and plaid.
To create my card I started with a red 5 x 5 card base. I added a piece of white card stock cut about 1/8" smaller than the card base. Then I added a piece of pink card stock cut about 1/8" smaller than the white card stock. I added a piece of white and pink heart patterned paper backed in both red and white card stock. To that I added a piece of blue and white plaid patterned paper backed in both red and white card stock. To create the corner piece I cut a 2 x 2 piece of red card stock in half to create the triangle and punched one edge using an eyelet lace border punch.
The image I used is Polka Dot Pals Katie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I colored her using Spectrum Noir pens, cut it into a circle, backed it in red card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors. I added red stickles to the circles on her hair bows and pants. I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday" onto white card stock and backed it in both red and white card stock. I finished my card by adding 3 red goosebump gems to the upper corner of the card.
