Paper Trey Ink's Make it Monday's Go to Sentiment Challenge-Day 3 of their Anniversary Contests!!

     I have wanted to do this challenge ever since I read about it on Monday but have been sick in bed with a stomach bug since then. The ideas were running around my head in my delirium and I dragged myself out of bed to create this card this afternoon so I could finally get some rest!!
     I am relatively new to Paper Trey Ink stamps. I only have 5 of their stamp sets so I wasn't sure how this challenge was going to go. I  mainly used the sentiments from Birthday Bash Sentiment Set but did find that I was able to supplement with sentiments from the Mat Stack 1 Collection and the Fillable Frame #1 Set to complete this card.

     I used PTI's Aqua Mist paper from the Perfect Match Cardstock Sampler as my base and stamped the sentiments in Versamark Turquoise Gem chalk ink. I used red as my splash of color and used pop dots on the frame to make the red Happy Birthday POP! I am really happy with how this card came out and will be using this technique when I am able to afford more PTI stamp sets!! Now off to bed to get some more rest!!
