Watercolor Words rt

This is a simple card for a simple challenge.  Once again it is time for a fun color challenge from the PPA (Pals Paper Arts).  Here's the challenge.

PPA259 Color Cjallenge

Because the Fourth of July is past, I found this challenge a little difficult to wrap my head around until I totally changed my focus from a patriotic card to a more generic card.

I've been itching to use the new Writing Notes Stamp & this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity because I knew that I wanted a lot of "white space".  Inking the stamp with Pacific Point Ink and stamping off once created just the shade of "blue" that I wanted for the lines of my paper.

With a birthday theme, I felt that the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gave my Pacific Point Cardstock layer just the punch it needed.  And, it reinforces the stars on the front of my card from the Brights Sequin Assortment.  

The large, dynamic sentiment from Watercolor Words is stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder.  It makes my sentiment stand out & it satisfies the "silver" requirement for the challenge.

The sweet heart from Watercolor Words is stamped with Real Red Ink & it goes nicely with the Real Red Stars  from the Brights Metallic Sequin Assortment.  

The final touch is a strip of Silver Washi Tape from the Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape which was used to attach the top layer to the rest of my card base.
