Happy Birthday Wishes - Stampin' Up! Happy Wishes - Fab Friday 130

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you've set aside some time this weekend to do some stamping!  The Fab Friday Design Team has been hard at work on a new challenge for you to join in on!

  We have a great color combination this week!

   This would be a great start to a Valentine's Day card or even a baby girl card.  I went with a birthday card this time as I'm trying to build up my stockpile for the onslaught of February birthdays in our family.

  A few weeks ago I had to order a bunch of cardstock and other stamping necessities and it just so happened that I earned some Sale-a-Bration (SAB) rewards so I decided to get the big Happy Wishes stamp set!  So many sentiment options with this set.  And the fun floral look of the 'happy' and 'best' will be perfect for spring cards.

  For my background I decided to go with color blocks in the challenge colors and then jazzed them up with 3 different embossing folders.

  The sentiment was stamped in black and then I colored in the flowers with ink pads and a blender pen.

  The 'birthday' was stamped in black onto Sweet Sugar Plum and then flagged.  I pulled in a bit more Melon Mambo by coloring some of the new 1/4" tafetta ribbon with my old Melon Mambo alcohol marker.  We don't have Melon Mambo in the Blends....yet.  Hoping for more colors to expand the offerings.  I hit the ribbon with a little blast from my heat gun and it gave it a nice little crinkle.  I wouldn't recommend doing too much heat or the ribbon could melt.  A bit of the black mini sequin trim and a faceted gem finish off the embellishments.

  I hope to see your card in our Fab Friday challenge gallery!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
