Colour INKspirations Challenge #91 - Pattern Play

Hello and thanks for popping in! 
We were given such a colourful pallette to work with for this colour challenge.  I almost felt overwhelmed until I read Lou's fine print which said to use at least three.  That being said, I managed to get all six colours plus some sparkle onto my card which features Pattern Play Photopolymer Stamp Set. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Grace Balfanz at Crafting Gracefully.

 Supplies Needed:
  • Stamp Sets: Pattern Play (background), So Sentimental (sentiment)
  • Dies:  Stitched So Sweetly
  • Cardstock:  Magenta Madness, Whisper White
  • Inks:  Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, Magneta Madness
  • Shimmery White Embossing Paste
  • Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (polka dots)
  • Adhesives: Tombow Liquid Glue, Dimensionals
  • Cut & Emboss Machine
All supplies for these projects can be found in my Online Store here or alternatively through the Store tab above.
I started by trimming a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 1/8" smaller all round than my card front.  I took the lined stamp from Pattern Play stamp set and using only the two outside lines, I created my striped background using the thicker line with Mango Melody and Magenta Madness and the thinner line with Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape.  I used the other stamps from the set to fill in areas between the lines.
Once completed, I attached this to the front of my card with Dimensionals.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from So Sentimental stamp set in Magenta Madness and die cut this from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I arranged a piece of Magenta Madness ribbon underneath and attached this to my card again using Dimensionals.
I continued the pattern to the inside of my card by stamping the design along the bottom of a piece of Whisper White cardstock and gluing this in with Tombow.
