HB: SSC206 & CQC #87

It's Monday! and that means another week has begun!  And what better way to start, than with a fun Birthday card? 
I need a Birthday card, for a wonderful young lady, but I also needed some inspiration.  Here is where I went:   I went to Stamping 411, for the layout.  I went to Colour Q for the colors.
So, this young lady is pretty wonderful, and hip, so I need something 'fun' and creative.  So, I used a 'teen' stamp set from Stampin' Up!, Grunge Rock.  I used some retired DSP paper: Razzleberry Lemonaide.  

Here is her Birthday card:

I used Pumpkin Pie as the card base.  Layered a piece of DSP on the base.  I added a strip of Crushed Curry with the fancy scallop trim border, with another piece of the DSP on that.  For the main image, I stamped the harlequin pattern in Crushed Curry classic ink along the left edge.  I did a 2nd generation stamp of the 'no.1' in Soft Suede classic ink.  I stamped the guitar with a home-made Melon Mambo craft ink and heat embossed with clear EP.  The whisper white looked too white, so I gave it a sprtiz of my home-made Pumpkin Pie shimmer mist.  Instead of adding a button, I made a paper flower with Crushed Curry cardstock.  I stamped the crown in Melon Mambo classic ink, and used a 1 1/4" circle punch.  The 'Happy Birthday' is done in Soft Suede classic ink onto a banner from the petal cone die.  I added some random rhinestone jewels to give the card some visual interest.  Viola!

*I made this card on Saturday, however, I didn't want to post it too soon, as the recipient might see it.  Well, the submission day/time has passed for Colour Q, so my card is not visible at their site.
