TCP Tuesday Challenge - TCPTUES60

I finally got a moment to sit down and craft; and even though I was already SO LATE to this week TCP challenge, I still wanted to get in on the fun :)!

This week TCP challenge, was an inspirational challenge, where Toni pick this room showcasing some colorful fashion pieces and ask Ana to be this week hostess. Sorry guys for being so LATE :)! I decided to pull some of the colors from this fashion theme room - I tried using as many as I could make work and I ended up with using 5 colors!

I decided I needed a sketch to help me pull all those colors together, and I decided to use Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT) posted by Jen from i{heart}2stamp. After playing with the layout a bit, I decided that turning it on its side worked best for the image I wanted to use :)

I am still making birthday cards, and I really wanted to ink this TCP cake stamp from the Smells Like Cake set - I have used this set over and over; it is so versatile! I felt they also went well with the fashion theme of the inspirational photo.

This is my take on both challenges:

The doodle look of the PP from DCWV Citrus stack seem to go well with the birthday theme of the card. I added the black gems to the sentiment. I also used this new EK Success edge punch that got my attention because of its different design; I ended offsetting the edge to give this card more dimensional.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the results :) and I think this could also work as a masculine birthday card - and I will be needing a few of those!
