Here is what I came up with, for a stamping friend with a birthday tomorrow!
Card base is Green Galore, background is Summer Sun. The background was textured with the large polka dot Texturz plate. The strips are Only Orange & Pixie Pink. They were textured with the small polka dot Texturz plate. The presents image is from the SAB set Happy Moments. I stamped it in Black Stazon on Whisper White and colored with the coordinating markers. I then grabbed my Versamark pad and inked all over it to apply Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Now it's all sparkly! Unfortunately hard to see via scan. The saying is from the same set, stamped in Pixie Pink and punched with the Word Window punch, layered on an Only Orange Modern Label punch. Two yellow Rhinestone brads are the final accent.
Enjoy, and play along with either challenge if you'd like. Back to stamping for me!!!
