Stampin' Up Waves of Inspiration Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another installment of Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop.  This week the Krew was given a color challenge.  I chose to all the colors: Pacific Point, Starry Sky, Night of Navy, Gray Granite and Basic White along with Stampin' Up Waves of Inspiration.  I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with this gorgeous colors provided for us.

I started out with a panel of Basic White held down on my Stamparatus with magnets.  I inked up the wave stamp from Stampin' Up Wave of Inspiration Stamp Set with Pacific Point ink.  I stamped the image on the Basic White.  I added Starry Sky and Night of Navy ink to the stamp with a Sponge Dauber and stamped it again.
I stamped the pelican image with Gray Granite ink on a piece of Basic White.  I stamped the sentiment using Starry Sky ink on a piece of Basic White.  I die cut the image and sentiment using Stampin' Up Waves Dies.  I die cut a piece of Gray Granite to create 3 cloud images.
I adhered the Basic White to a panel of Stampin' Up Sun Prints DSP.  I adhered the pelican to the card front with Stampin' Seal.  I added the clouds to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  
I cut a piece of Stampin' Up Starry Sky Metallic Woven Ribbon and adhered it to the back of the sentiment strip.  I adhered the sentiment die to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I adhered the front panel to a Gray Granite card base.
I stamped another wave on a panel of Basic white.  I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card base.

Thanks so much for hopping by!  I hope you enjoyed todays card!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
