Katie's Birthday

It's my cousin Katie's birthday next week so I went looking for a couple of challenge blogs I could use as a starting place for her card. I found this sketch on the Clean & Simple stamping blog. I've only just starting using these wonderful crisp and clean sketches, they're fabulous for my style of cardmaking. Then I went over to the Simply Stampin' Challenge blog and chose to play along with this week's colour challenge. I used my new Apothecary Frames Framelit Die and the new 'Make a Cake' stamp set. Loving playing with new goodies this week!

Stamps : Make a Cake, Curly Cute (sentiment), Distressed Dots (background)
Ink : Island Indigo, Real Red, Regal Rose
Cardstock : Shimmery White, Island Indigo
Accessories : Big Shot, Apothecary Labels Framelits, dimensionals, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Crystal Effects, 1/2 Crystal
