A Sunday Stamps Mix up!!

I'm finally getting caught up with all my projects and things are settling back into place after being sick for so long. Let's hope I can stay on track This week at Sunday Stamps Steph is our hostess and she has created a fun sketch for us all.

I was having a bit of trouble coming up with a color palette so I looked through some other Challenge blogs and I came across the colors at The Color Throwdown this week and I knew these were perfect!

I love how this card came out and the way I used the colors... Sometimes I try to use more then 3 colors and they just get all mixed up and they don't look right the way I layered them. 

I started with the Sketch and then the colors... I choose the set Happy Hour because I needed a Birthday card and the drinks fit perfectly in the Curly Label punch. 

My card base is Basic Black and I added a layer of Whisper White and then some Marina Mist & Daffodil Delight DSP. I stamped the drink images with Black StazOn and then punched them out. I stamped them a second time onto some scrap pieces in Marian Mist, Daffodil Delight & Wild Wasabi and then I cut out the liquid part and added it onto the drink image with some dimensionals.

I punched out two scalloped ribbon boarders in Wild Wasabi and showed just the scallop edge along the black piece that I adhered the curly label pieces too. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch and then I second one in Marina Mist and off centered it. 

It needed a little Bling so I added some Rhinestones along the bottom of the sentiment and some Dazzling Details to the Bubbles on the Martini glass image. It's so cute... Well I think so anyways! 

Be sure to head over to the Sunday Stamps blog and see what the other Design Team members created with the Sketch and we hope you will join us! The linky will close on Friday ay 6pm EST. 

There is still time to play along with The Color Throwdown as well their Linky will close Tomorrow (Monday) at 6pm EST. These are such fun colors! 

Enjoy the rest of your Weekend and have a safe and Happy Memorial Day and be sure to Say Thank You to a Veteran!
