Stampin' Up! Party this way!

I wanted to get inky today after work, so when I returned home and saw that the new Stamping 411 Challenge had gone online, I decided to have a play.... The challenge this week was to use this colour palette....
To me it seems like a daunting colour palette.... That is until I decided to pull out the Stampin' Up Party This Way stamp set, and have a play with that cute candle... I am also entering this card into the Stampin' Royalty challenge, which was to use ribbon. Below is my card
I borrowed this idea from someone really talented, of course, now I can't remember who.... I just remembered I'd saved the pic, and the talented lady I am casing is Juliette Chapman of Jules Krafti Krafts. I have used Pacific Point cardstock, layered this with some Pumpkin Pie, which has been punched with the Scallop Trim border punch, then stamped the lovely candle in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin and Pacific. The Ribbon is in Melon Mambo, and is unfortunately retired. The sentiment also comes from Party This Way, and I have stamped it in Basic Black.
Thanks for looking
Jess
