I was inspired by the images above, firstly the cards on the right from page 19 reminded me of how great Watercolour Pencils are for colouring and so I was inspired to utilise those in my project. The card in the top right of the picture on the left, from page 18, loosely inspired my card layout for this challenge. I also wanted to keep with the feel of the suite and so chose nice bright colours for my card.
Even though the SAB foil sheets are Lovely Lipstick, and not Melon Mambo, I just had to cut "Happy Birthday" from them using my new Well Said Framelits. They add just a touch of glitz to the card.
I am so glad I was inspired to make this card as it reminded me how much I love using Watercolour Pencils, I think they have taken a bit of a back seat to the Stampin' Blends in recent times, but this project reminded me of how versatile they are, from adding extra shading to the cupcake to adding a touch more colour to the "cake" in the main sentiment (below).
The base of the card ended up looking a bit too bland but with everything else going on I didn't want to add too much detail, so simply repeated the main sentiment on it using VersaMark before sponging the edges to help it stand out from the base just a little.
