 So these are outside my normal colors for sure.... and I have to confess as I got the colors of card stock together the only thing I could think of was Neapolitan Ice Cream or Easter M & M colors! So needless to say I am craving something sweet! 
 When I went through my stash of stamps, I realized that somehow I did not have any corner stamps that would work for this challenge from Serendipity. They have a whole section that you can find HERE. I had to get creative and I used the heart die to make some corner pieces.
 I stamped the sentiment in Memento's Rich Cocoa. I used the two Copics to airbrush the color over the sentiment. I left the paper in the die as I airbrushed giving me the white border. I added piercing around the edge to help frame it. 
I finished things off with a loopy bow using some multi color twine I found in my stash. the sentiment panel is popped up with foam tape. All of the layers were created using Perfect Layer Rulers
