More Birthday Bash!

Here's another card from my Birthday Bash! Abi picked the colors again and they were really fun to work with and this set. This is a fairly new set for me and I haven't had a chance to use it too much yet! To create the "sun", I punched a piece of copy paper with the 1" circle punch and put a little tape on the back of it. I always tap the tape onto my pants several times to take some of the tacky away so that I can remove it from my project when I need to! Then I added colors to the project! I started with sponging on Daffodil Delight, added More Mustard and finally Pumpkin Pie. I removed the paper circle and sponged on more Daffodil Delight. I got this really cool sun setting look!

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes, Nature Silhouettes
Ink: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie
Cardstock: Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Sponges, Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon, Modern Label punch, Word Window

Happy Stampin'!
