Pretty Postage Birthday - Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge #217 & Color challenge with Color Throwdown #155

This card combines 2 challenges in one.
I used the color challenge with Color Throwdown #155 here - Early Espresso, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss (I substituted Lucky Limeade) using the Saturday Sketch Challenge #217 with Stamping 411here


The image was colored with markers (Rose Red, Lucky Limeade, & Early Espresso) on Very Vanilla card stock. Four of the images are identical, and the 5th image contained the sentiment.
All were punched using the postage punch and mounted on an Early Espresso Scallop square.
A birthday card has to have bling, so dazzling diamonds was applied to the word "Sweet" and the candle flames.

The base card is Lucky Limeade, with Early Espresso the next layer.  The Very Vanilla top layer was double embossed - using the Lines Embossing Folder and clear embossing powder.

Materials Used:
Stamp: Pretty Postage
Inks: Markers:  Rose Red, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso
Papers:Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder, Square Scallop punch, Postage stamp punch, Dazzling diamonds, Pearls, Clear embossing powder
