Designer's Choice Challenge

It's time for a new Challenge series over at the House that Stamps Built
Here's how the "Designer's Choice Challenge" will work!
All of the fabulous design team members for Repeat Impressions 
will be assigned a Wednesday, and we get to set the 
"theme" for the challenge!  The Theme for this
week's DCC is hosted by Karen and she came up with
  a Child's Birthday or Happy Day Card and
you must also use embossing - wet or dry or both.

For my DCC, I used the stamp called 
I stamped my image onto Cryogen Iridescent White Card Stock
and colored it with my Copics.  I sponged around my image with
Memento Summer Sky Ink pad.  My Sentiment is stamped with 
Summer Sky onto Cryogen Card Stock. 
I used a Martha Stewart Border punch to 
create my side border and added some
ribbon from my stash as well as a bow. My main
card base was embossed with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
embossing folder.  I sponged some Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate
to bring out the dots a little bit. 

Here's a closer look at my colored image:

Take a peek at what the rest of the DT has created for
this great Challenge.
