Our challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been given to us by Gwen.  Along with the sketch, we had to use the colour of Perfect Plum.  I must admit I haven't used this colour for quiet some time, but alway love the end result when I do.

Base Card - Perfect Plum - 8 1/4 x 4 1/8" or 21cm x 15cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 3/4" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9.5cm

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Artistic Etchings, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink - Rose Red, Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette
Cardstock - Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette
Embossing Folder - Perfect Polka Dots
Accessories - Big Shot, Scallop Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive

I run my large piece of Whisper White Cardstock through the Big Shot using Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I adhered this to the Base Card - Perfect Plum with Snail Adhesive.

I inked my image in Pink Pirouette Ink, stamped off once & then onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  I repeated this twice before stamping my main image over the top with Perfect Plum Ink.  This piece was adhered to a piece of Pink Pirouette prior to adhering to the Base Card with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

The middle section was stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock with Pink Pirouette Ink.  I stamped off once prior to stamping one image, while the other was direct to paper.  I then inked the crown with Perfect Plum, stamped direct to paper while the 3rd image I used Rose Red.  This piece was adhered to a layer of Rose Red Cardstock & finally to the Base Card.  Part of the section was adhered  with Snail Adhesive while the other part was adhered with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.
The greeting was stamped twice onto a scap of Whisper White Cardstock, once in Perfect Plum Ink, punched out with the Scallop Circle Punch & the 2nd image in Rose Red & the middle punched with the 1" Circle Punch.  The Rose Red image was then adhered to the middle of the Perfect Plum image with a Stampin' Dimensional prior to adhering to the card.  Again, I used Snail Adhesive for the top part, while the bottom part is supported by a Stampin' Dimensional.

We would love for you to join us this week in our challenge.  So hop on over to check what the other girls have created & then link your creation back using Mr Linky.

Until next time, Happy Stampin'
