Diagonal Ombre Birthday Card

Hi friends,

This is a rare event for me,  and I am making is just under the wire, but nevertheless I am popping in this evening to share a card that I made for a card challenge or two (!).  I still can't believe it myself. :)

I was inspired by the latest Runway Inspired Challenge to make a card using pretty shades of coral along with bold diagonal stripes.

I created the stripes by using this stencil from My Favorite Things.  I applied the ink with a sponge applicator taking care to mask off the areas that I already inked. 

The sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Happy Everything stamp set.  I love how the loopy 'happy' contrasts with all the straight stripes.  A few enamel dots finish off the card. 

In addition to the Runway Inspired Challenge, I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
