I'm back with Two Challenges!

I'm back from an awesome Easter vacation in Florida! It was such nice weather and sooooo relaxing! But, like a true stamper, I did miss my stamping. So to catch up I made this birthday card for two challenges, Stamping 411 sketch #146 here and Splitcoast color combo #266 here.
The color combo is Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral and Ruby Red. These are three of the 30 retiring Stampin UP! colors that will be gone after June 30th. If you love them, get them now!
I started with a Blush Blossom base, added a piece of Cameo Coral and then a piece of Cameo Coral patterned paper from the Pink Flamingo DSP. I ran a piece of Ruby Red thru the Scallop Edge punch and a piece of Blush Blossom thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka dots textured impressions folder. I stamped the Birthday Bliss in Ruby Red and again in Cameo Coral. I punched the main image out with the Wide Oval punch. I then cut out a piece of the Cameo Coral and popped that up with Stampin dimensionals. A piece of 1/4 inch Whisper White grosgrain finishes it off.
Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Birthday Bliss
Papers: Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Pink Flamingo DSP
Inks: Cameo Coral and Ruby Red
Accessories: Wide oval punch, scallop edge punch, stampin dimensionals, 1/4 inch Whisper White grosgrain, Perfect Polka dots textured impressions folder
