Color Splash: Turquoise

Hi All!
After I finished my first colorsplash card last night, I HAD to make another one for the Play Date Cafe challenge!!!
 This time I used turquoise for the splash of color.
If you didn't notice, this is a little outside my comfort zone. I usually make very clean and simple cards and I feel a bit unsure about how to make a busy card... However- I succeeded! I think this is a very busy card- and I love it!
The background paper is PTI's true black with Damask Designs heat embossed in white powder. All of the turquoise is from an ink pad. I inked the white cardstock, the white doily, and the center circle.

I had originally stamped the happy birthday in turquoise on the white piece and decided it was too hard to read. So- I restamped the frame on white, cut it out, inked it, and stamped in black!

Thanks for checkin' it out!

   Paper: PTI- true black, white; white card at 4" x 5.5"
   Stamps: PTI- Damask Designs, Mat Stack 2, Birthday Basics
   Ink- VersaMark; VersaMagic- aquatic splash; Colorbox- black
   Other: doily; PTI- Mat Stack 2 die cut; white embossing powder
