It's Your Birthday

The Marquee Messages is one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2016-17 Idea Book and Catalog.   I love the retro look and feel of this set!!  It is becoming one of my fast favorites! I was totally inspired by Jen Mitchell's design on Freshly Made Sketches.   Love the colors and the triangles.

I decided to change it up a little and instead of triangles, I used a diamond punch I recently picked up at a local craft store.    I got the diamond punch so I can create more retro feel cards and I am happy I did.   Now I have a perfect set.

Love Jen's color combo.    Soft Sky, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron!!

Ingredients to make the card:
Stamp Sets:  Marquee Messages
Ink:   Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron
Paper:  Whisper White, Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper, Soft Sky, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron
Accessories:  Black Enamel Dots
Tools:  Project Life Corner Rounder, Diamond Punch from a local craft store
