Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge #21

Two weekends in a row I get to play along with the clear dollar color challenge. (thanks army! lol) This week, we are challenged to use Pink Passion, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie (su) with a white or black for a neutral. This challenge can be found at: http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/cleardollarstampsllcweekendcolorchallenge/forum/topics/clear-dollar-stamps-llc-3 This is quickly becoming one of my favorite challenges. For this card, I chose to ink up my "biggest wishes" created by the very talented Shawnee Arnold at Clear Dollar stamps http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/Detail?no=3743. The pumpkin pie for my base card is embossed with swiss dots to mirror the dots on the cake. I then stamped this adorable little mouse, her presents and cake on whisper white after first utilizing my dahila nesties. I used pink passion marker and pumpkin pie and summer sun ink watercoloring to color the image and pink passion to sponge the edge of the white dahlia. I used good morning sunshine (su) for the dotted summer sun dsp dahlias along with pink passion and a pumpkin pie dahlia. The ribbon is from Clear Dollar Stamps as well. For a final touch, I gave the cake some dimention with some dazzling diamonds glitter (su) . Thank you for visiting and for sharing your thoughts!
