A Triple Challenge

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by three challenges, #GDP343 Theme Challenge, #TGIFC368 Sketch Challenge, and the #SUOC301 Birthday Challenge.  Please visit the blogs using the hyperlinks and enjoy the inspiration - then go make a card and express your creativity!  Have fun!

Assembly & Trix:

***Trix, the 3 x 5 Pool Party Layer is embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder, #149643 with a bit of White Craft Ink blended on top.  Then I added flicks of Wink Of Stella, hoping this would look like the sun shining on the flowers and provide a bit of variation to the Pool Party 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base.   

*  The narrow strip is the White Frayed Ribbon, #158138

*  Stamp the flowers from Dragonfly Garden, #154411 with Memento Black ink on a 2 x 4 1/2 Basic White cardstock layer and colour with Stampin' Write Markers - Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis and Gorgeous Grape.  

*  The Dragonfly is stamped with Memento Black Ink, coloured with Pool Party Stampijn' Write Marker and topped off with Wink Of Stella.

*  The birthday sentiment is from the Artfully Layered Stamp Set, #157752 available until the end of May 2022.
