Birthday Wishes - PT Paperdolls Challenge

What a crazy day it has been!  I wanted to get this posted earlier but alas sometimes duty calls.  This week's Papertrey Paperdolls Challenge was to use make a card or project using 1) a stamp that has never been inked and 2) a product that is brand new and never been used.  Unfortunately, I had many choices!  I think I kindof misunderstood, but my card is still within the guidelines.  I thought I was supposed to use an older stamp that hasn't yet been inked and a new stamp that hasn't yet been used.  So I did!  However, I did just open the white satin ribbon and I used a PTI cardstock I haven't used before.  Great challenge!  Thank you Michelle!

Here's what I came up with.  I hope you like it!

I left the stickles in a glump which took a while to dry but the effect is so pretty and gives it a nice texture!

Card Base: PTI Smokey Shadow 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:  Berry Sorbet 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:  White
Ink: SU Cameo Coral which matches Berry Sorbet PERFECTLY!!, Mellow Moss, Basic Gray, Versa Mark
Stamps: PTI (Papertrey Ink) Year of Flowers: Gladiolus, Guide Lines, sentiment from Asian Fusion
Accessories:  Blender Pen, Cameo Coral Marker, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, SU Oval Punches, and Cotton Candy Stickles
