Happy Earth Day! ~ TSOT 114 & CASE Study 137

Happy Earth Day everyone!  As luck would have it, Case Study's challenge this week goes right along with the earth/world theme!  Here's the card we were to be inspired by...

I also used the sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  When I saw the inspiration card, I knew right away I'd use this image from the Word Play set.  I inked it up with the colors from the inspiration card with my markers.  Now that I look at it again though, I remembered that I had originly planned to use Pool Party instead of Marina Mist....whoops! 
I wanted to bring the black from the inspiration card in with layering.  I love a pop of black against bright colors. 
With all the layering on this card it weighs about a pound and a half!  I like the way it turned out though....very festive and fun!  I added a bit of sparkle with Glimmer Brads in the opposite corners and Dazzeling Diamonds glitter on the itty bitty world.
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Word Play
Paper: Black, White, Marina Mist, Gumball Green, Sunny Days & InColor DSP
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green, Marina Mist
Accessories: Circles #2 die, 3/4" circle punch, Glimmer brads, Stripe EF, Dazzeling Diamonds glitter, Dimensionals
Thanks for taking a peek!
