Playful Background Happy Birthday Card

Playful Background Happy Birthday Card | Tracy Marie Lewis |

I missed last week's Creative Cat Crew color challenge due to prepping for three blog hops and packing up to move to a new campground. So first thing this morning I got started on this week's challenge. I have been waiting for some bright colors so I can break out a new stamp set for me "Playful Backgrounds". 

The colors for this week are: Old Olive, Granny Apple Green, Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch and Black. This is the inspiration image: 
I started my background with Granny Apple Green solid dots. The lined dots were a mix of Old Olive and Memento black. Then I moved to the inner part of the card and inked the paint strokes with Lovely Lipstick, the smaller dots were Pineapple Punch. I finished with Flirty Flamingo lines that I stamped off on a paper towel first. I trimmed it down to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" and sponged the edges with Granny Apple Green. The black mat is very thin at 3 3/8" x 4 5/8" which I popped up on top of a 4" x 5 1/4" Granny Apple Green mat. 

The sentiment is from "Lemon Zest" and was stamped on a Lovely Lipstick sponged die cut from "Lilypad Lake". The only embellishment was a few Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green Glitter enamel dots.
