Polly's Superhero Birthday

I really adore the Comic Strip Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink and have used it often for birthday, baby and anniversary cards. This card was made for my grand niece's 6th birthday. I started by cutting the cover plate in Stamper's Select White card stock and sponging the frame portions with a variety of pink inks, to create an ombre look. 

With a colour scheme of pink (Hibiscus Burst), purple (Winter Wisteria, Plum Pudding) and yellow (Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold), I filled each of the blocks with stamps and die cuts from Zappy Birthday and Superhero.

Top left panel: 
Background paper: Plum Pudding Bitty Dots paper. 
Zappy Birthday die cut was stamped with Hibiscus Burst.  
Sentiment: from Zappy Birthday stamped onto a narrow 
piece of white card stock to create a banner. 

Top right panel:
Background: stamped with Birthday Style confetti stamp  
using Hibiscus Burst, Plum Pudding and Harvest Gold inks. 
Circles: Plum Pudding Bitty Dot paper; Superhero image stamped
