Punch Bunch Happy Birthday

Over at  Pals Paper Arts this week, they have set a challenge to make a clean and simple card using scallops and this is what I came up with.  For the colour combo I went to Color Q and found the combination of Pear Pizzazz, Brilliant Blue, Brocade Blue, Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.  Because I no longer have any Brilliant Blue or Brocade Blue (since they were retired) I substituted with Pacific Point and Marina Mist.  I used the birthday stamp from the SAB set Punch Bunch and did some faux stitching on the Pear Pizzazz strip with the Mat Pack and White Gel Pen.  It still looked a little dull so I embossed the background with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I like it, I think it will be nice for a young man who doesn't have an aversion to purple which is not my husband :)

Stamps:  Punch Bunch (SAB)
Paper:  Pacific Point, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry
Ink:  Marina Mist
Accessories:  Big Shot, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Scallop Square Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer, White Gel Pen

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.


Very nice card, susan! Thanks for playing the ColourQ challenge this week.
