Happy 8th

This week's Inkredible color challenge is:   Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky and Strawberry Slush.      If you look really hard you will see just a touch of Daffodil Delight and Midnight Muse were added to the card with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.      I had some alphabet stickers that were the perfect shade.   I decided to make my own number 8 embellishment.   I die cut the 8 then added some heat and stick powder, heat it and then added some dazzling diamonds and heat it again.    The 8 looks like it was part of the sticker set.      I sponged some soft sky ink before adding the doily to the project.    The polka dots were sponged on with some soft sky ink and the Simply Created Build a Banner Kit.

What can I say I sometimes surprise myself when the project comes together.   I have to say when I see this card it makes me smile.     I made the card for my niece's birthday and I have a feeling it is going to be a hit.
