Pinks and Purples- A Vintage Birthday for Two Challenges



Hi Stampers! 

Time for another SUO-Only Challenge and the SUO92 Challenge is “Pinks and Purples” so I decided to combine both on my card :-) 

 I wanted to also participate in the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes Challenge since it seems as though I never have enough birthday cards on hand :-).  

I hope you will take the time to visit both sites and come join in on the fun!!



To create this card:

Adhere the Wisteria Wonder background from the Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim and layer onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock.   

Add the ½ Tea Lace Paper Doily to the lower half of the card front, add the ruffled Wisteria Wonder ribbon to hide the seam of the doily.  Adhere the card front to a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and mount onto the Naturals White card base.
Using the Scalloped Tag Punch, cut a tag from Elegant Eggplant cardstock and another one from Afternoon Tea Designer Series Paper (DSP)- trim the Afternoon Tea DSP strip and layer onto the Elegant Eggplant tag.
Stamp the sentiment from the Hostess set, Express Yourself using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink onto a piece of Naturals White cardstock.  Trim and round the corner using the inside of the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch.  Layer onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock, trim to create a frame, round the corner and create the banner using the same punches.- add the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® .
Create rolled flowers using the 2 3/8”, 1 ¾” and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punches from Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo cardstock and Afternoon Tea DSP- punch the scallop circles, crimp using the retired Crimper Tool, hand cut a wavy spiral from the outside of the scallop circle toward the center, roll up from the outside edge and adhere using Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive (or a Hot Glue Gun) . 
Punch the leaves from Pear Pizzazz cardstock using the Bird Builder Punch.   Add the roses and leaves to the front of the card front.
Create the paper bow from Melon Mambo cardstock using the Large Oval Punch along with the Hexagon Punch.  Add a rolled rose along with leaves to the center and adhere to the top of the tag.
Add the Pearls to the ribbon to finish off the card.
