Colour Q: #315

Well hello,  just posting a quick entry for Colour Q's lovely #315 challenge,  the color scheme inspired by this beautiful photo:

So,  I needed some cards to send to a couple of nieces for their birthday  and decided that the dies and stamp set from Papertrey Ink's Party Pops Make-it-Market kit was perfect
 I began by cutting a card panel from white cardstock with a stitched die from My Favorite Things.  Then using the Party Pops kit dies,  I cut out the top portion of the cupcake that flips up.  Then I started my stamping,  using various stamps from the set in Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise,  New Leaf and Tropical Teal PTI inks. 

Though you unfortunately cannot see it in the photograph,  I also went ahead and added some clear Wink of Stella to the various party elements to add interest. I then backed the panel with Raspberry Fizz cardstock that was cut using my Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles. 

And finally using Versafine black ink and clear embossing powder,  I heat embossed "Surprise" under the cupcake flap!  I hope you enjoy and until next time... Craft on!
