Simply Special Birthday Wishes

Hello Prettie peeps! It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop! If you hopped over from KRISTY's blog, then you are on the right track! If not, hop back to the very beginning to CHRISTIE's blog. Then make your way back over here! I don't want you  to miss a thing! :)

This week the challenge is hosted by Kristy Ketterlin. Kristy’s favorite color is pink... anything and everything pink! So Kristy has a color challenge for us, to create a card using the colors pink, white and one of your favorite colors. Wait... there's another part to the challenge! You have to add ribbon and use a technique you have not tried before!

I used the stamp SIMPLY SPECIAL. I needed to make a birthday card for a fellow preschool teacher and thought she would really like this image. I used white, pink, and teal as my colors. Teal?! No... it's not my favorite color. However, the SCS Clean and Simple Cards challenge - CAS50 is to use teal, white, and one other color. The new thing that I wanted to try out was using only white cardstock... no designer paper. I don't know if it's a "technique" but I thought it would be neat to try. I used a sponge to add the pink everywhere.

I also decided to join in on Mojo Monday's Sketch Blog challenge.

Here's my card: Simply Special Birthday Wish
