Wish Big! Three Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers! 
I wanted to create a quick and easy card for the Pals Paper Arts PP40 Sketch Challenge (see www.palspaperarts.com ) and decided to use the colors from this week’s Splitcoast Stampers CC316 Color Challenge.  Since it is a birthday card, it also qualifies for the SUO Challenge #15, Birthday Cards  (see http://suochallenges.com). 
If you have a chance, stop by their sites to see all of the gorgeous Design Team projects and the many other talented artists’ entries!
To create this card:
Emboss a piece of Certainly Celery using the Big Shot and the Square Lattice EF and re-emboss with the Framed Tulips EF.  Mount onto a piece of Whisper White and again onto Marina Mist.
Punch the edge of Whisper White cardstock with the Eyelet Border Punch and crimp with the Crimper Tool, adhere to the card and add a piece of Baja Breeze DSP.
Punch a circle from Whisper White with the 2 ½” Circle XL Punch.  Create a mask and sponge Baja Breeze and Marina Mist over the top area of the circle.  Sponge the lower area with Certainly Celery and stamp the floral image from Just Believe with Basic Black.  Mount to the card using Dimensionals.
Add the ribbon and sentiment to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Just Believe, Short & Sweet
 Ink:  Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery
Cardstock:   Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist, Whisper White
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice and Framed Tulips EF, Eyelet Border Punch, 2 ½” Circle XL Punch, Small Oval Punch, Crimping Tool, Sponge Daubers, 5/8” White Satin Ribbon, Styled Silver Hardware
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend- God Bless!
