Gemma's Birthday

I love this stamp called  Uptown Bentley gets blown away from Stamping Bella.
I made this card for the Boyfs cousin Gemma. I went with all bright summery warm colours to celebrate her birthday.

I love these colours together. Yellow is def my favourite at the mo - Maybe its the summer vibe and the memory of sunshine (Haven't had much of the real thing!)
The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and I have this twill in every colour. I love it - I think the width if perfect to make it a feature on the card.
I cut  circle from Echo park paper called Blue Sky using a Fiskars circle cutter. I covered the square card in two different patterned papers from My Favourite things Dots and stripes paper called Sherbet. The Greeting is from Pebbles and the letters spelling out Gemma are from Doodlebug. The gem swirls are from Hobbycraft. I added glaze to the middle balloon and then sprinkled some Cosmic Shimmer it before it set. I attached the image using 3D foam.
I used these Promarkers / flexmarkers on this card -
Skin - Soft peach, Blush & Antique white.
Hair - Sleigh Bells, Mustard, Pineapple crush, Buttercup
Dress - Soft Lime, Primrose, Lemon, Canary & Sunflower.
Trim & Shoes - Baby pink , Cerise, Frosted pink, Pink Lobster & Maroon
Balloons - Pinks & Yellow as above. Bright Orange & Mango.
