Bring On the Day

Aloha everyone!  Here's a cheery card that combines a few challenges on my list.  Another 3-in-1 card:)

 The color inspiration for this card comes from Jen Carter's great inspiration challenge on the Paper Dolls Blog using this photo below.  Isn't it beautiful?  I chose the Papertrey colors of Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse and Pure Poppy.  I don't know why the Lemon Tart doesn't look yellow in this photo:(


I created this card using the Selective Inking technique from the Papertrey Make it Monday challenge this week.  I used two sentiments from Big Birthday Wishes and inked up the words I wanted.  The original sentiments are "bring on the happy" and "birthday".  As you can see I masked off the happy and birth in each sentiment.  I also selectively inked up the little cupcake from the Everyday Classics anniversary set.  The stamping on the bottom of the Lemon Tart panel combines images from two background sets -- Tin Types (pure poppy) and the single design stamp from Retro (hawaiian shores).

My layout is from the Clean & Simple blog:  FTL139.  I just love their sketches.

This is wonderful! I love how these colors looks together! I really like how you tied the twine onto the hardward, that is such a cool look and adds great texture to the card!

This is great, Sara! Love that little cupcake at the top. I like how you used the little metal thingy (not sure what they're called!). I have a bunch of those, but never used any. Thanks for the idea!
