Sweet Sunday Sketch 59

Welcome to another wonderful sketch by Karen. I'm growing quite addicted to these babies, and can't wait until 3pm on a Sunday afternoon rolls around! I've taken the colours from the ribbon, and that's what started me on a roll. I love it when that happens! Once one element is in place, the rest just follows (usually!) These colours are soooo pretty together, and I actually thought they looked very Easter-y, but since I don't tend to give Easter cards, I made it a Birthday one for my stash.
Here is a close up of the detail. I thought the image panel looked a bit stark white, so I've used my Colour Spritzer Tool with an Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write marker to give it a bit of oomf. 'Oomf' being a highly technical stamping term! Lol. On the bottom white panel (I have a problem leaving white parts!) I have inked up the background stamp in the Razzle Dazzle set with markers, again to match the ribbon.

Stamps - Razzle Dazzle, Happy Everything
Cardstock - Whisper White, Almost Amethyst, Apricot Appeal, Groovy Guava
Ink - Versa Mark, Groovy Guava, Lovely Lilac, and Stampin' Write markers in Apricot Appeal, Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst and Cameo Coral
Accessories and Tools - Curly Label Punch, Colour Spritzer Tool, Ribbon from Sweet Shop Ribbon Originals (loooong retired)
All materials Stampin' up!
