BC112 It's Your Birthday
HAPPY FRIDAY! - This weeks challenge for the BC Group was the theme, "It's Your Birthday" and you know some where someone is celebrating their birthday. If it's you and you just happen to be visiting my blog then this cards for you!
This card is a rather CAS design but I like it. I think the only thing I might have changed was maybe adding an emobossed white background but I had already finished the card when that idea occurred to me.
I started off picking out my paper this time around. I had this super fun striped patterned paper (Bubblegum Popsicle - BoBunny) that I just fell in love with. The reverse side is multi-color dots which are equally fun. Next I paired my paper up with a birthday sentiment image from (Inkadinkado's Birthday Fun stamps set). I recently won this set in a blog giveaway. It worked great for this weeks challenge.
The image was embossed with Basic Black EP and then I colored the letters with various Bold Bright markers. Next I highlighted each of the letters with a Spica Glitter pen for some extra shimmer. Hopefully you can see that if you click on the card for the larger version. I added a flower from (Hero Arts) and a striped cloth brad (source unknown) and 3 Green Galore Brads. The sentiment and frame are both Nestabilite Dies. I also used my MS Loopy Punch (love that punch).
That's it's plain and simple but a lot of fun. Now go check out the other members blogs and see how they celebrated this birthday theme.
