Apothecary Art Happiest Birthday - Fab Friday #14

Wow!  Two colour challenges in a row!  I don't know what inspired me, but what the heck I seem to be on a roll.  This colour challenge is for Fab Friday here
The colours are as follows:  Pink Pirouette, Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand and Lucky Limeade.  I would never in my lifetime put those 4 colours together on my own, but I'm pleased with the resulting card.
Here it is:


The image was stamped with Black Stazon ink onto Whisper White cardstock. The flowers were painted with Calypso coral and Pink Pirouette uisng ink pads and an Aqua painter.  You can see the colouring better in the enlarged picture at the bottom.  The leaves were painted Lucky Limeade. 
The sentiment was inked using a Sahara Sand marker and stamped in the middle using a stamp-a-ma-jig for placement.  I must admit I'm getting better at using that tool!  Then I put some dazzling diamonds in the middle of each flower.  Once dry, I die cut the image using the Labels framelit, matting it with another labels framelit die cut in the same size but in Calypso coral.  This die cut was cut in half and placed behind the first one.

The base card is Calypso Coral, layered with a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock embossed with the Honeycomb folder.
The designer paper is retired Fruit and Flowers DSP and it is matted with Lucky Limeade.
A strip of Pink Pirouette card stock was embossed with the square lattice folder and strips of scalloped lucky limeade adhered to the top and bottom.  It was placed near the bottom of the card.  The image panel was adhered to the card using dimensionals.
Some rhinestones at the upper right completes the card.

Heres a list of the stamps/supplies used:

Stamp: Apothecary Art
Inks: Calypso Coral, Pink Pirouette, Lucky Limeade, Sahara Sand Marker
Papers: Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Fruit & Flowers DSP (retired)

Hope you enjoyed the card.  Thanks for stopping by.
