I really wanted to play along with this week's Color Throwdown #332, so I decided that the darling Wigwam stamp from Wigwam would be perfect for these colours.  For the background, I took a 105x148mm piece of Coconut Swirl cardstock and inked it with Chipped Sapphire distress ink and Toffee Crunch memento ink. I wanted the bottom to be a little greyer, so I added a very light layer of Pumice Stone distress ink over the Toffee Crunch. I then stamped and coloured the wigwam, and added it to the card front using foam pads for dimension.  I then added a starry sky using my white gelly roll pen.  Finally, I stamped "happy birthday" from Yappy in black ink onto a strip of white card and glued it to the card front.  A few Doodlebug sprinkles and it was done!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
