Party Puffins Celebrate with FMS & TGIF Challenges

Hello and thx for visiting today!

When I saw Jen M's Sketch Challenge from Freshly Made Sketches #488 earlier this week I knew I wanted to use Party Puffins and a scallop die, but I couldn't decide which colours to use. And then TGIF Challenges #319 introduced their Color challenge for the next week and it all came together!  Thank you FMS & TGIF Challenges!

Assembly and Trix:

*  Adhere the DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) 

*  Emboss the Smoky Slate with the 3D Embossing folder and adhere to the card base with glue.  ***Trix, I wanted a square shape so I used the scalloped rectangle die, cut it out, and then moved the die along to re cut the shape into a square.

*  Adhere a coordinating piece of DSP to the scalloped square.  I chose the Night of Navy floral piece with Pacific Point flowers for contrast.

*  Cut a smaller scallop rectangle using the Scallop contour Dies from the DSP.  ***Trix, I chose to repeat the first layer of DSP because I love how the stripe and dots detail  coordinated together to create continuity with the strips of DSP layers.     

*  Adhere the Metallic Ribbon and Black Glitter Ribbon to the back of the DSP with Stampin' Seal adhesive.

*  Adhere the strips layer to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Stamp the Puffin with Memento Black ink and colour with the blends markers.

*  Stamp the cake with Memento Black ink and colour with blends markers, adding Wink of Stella to the candles.

*  Stamp the greeting using Memento Black ink.

*  Adhere the Puffin cake and sentiment on the DSP strip.  ***Trix, I used glue for the sentiment and cake, and dimensionals for the Puffin.  

*  Embellish with Matte Black Dots.
