Let’s get Birthday

I had another birthday coming up and just saw the brilliant card from Ali Farmer and had to make my own version. I love that cute little interactive card. Celebration is also the challenge from Cute Card Thursday. To make the background, I used the Distress inks and Oxides “Dusty Concord”, “Shaded lilac”, “Blueprint sketch”, “faded jeans” with a bit “chipped sapphire” and black. I added some water and silver and black acrylic paint for the party look. Perfect for the mixed media challenge from We love 2 create.

The main image is from the stamp set “The Dog’s Woof” from Mama Elephant and are coloured in my Grays (warm, cold and neutral) as well as browns (E30-39 and E21, E50-53 combinations). The party hats are in blue (B24-B28), covered in dots with a silver gel pen and some “gunsmoke” sparkles with my Stickles. The Polaroid die is from the dollar store around the corner and fits the theme perfectly. Enough stamps to choose for the stamping challenge from Allsorts.

The sassy sentiment is from My Favorite Things, the “Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings 2” and is too funny to use. To fit it even better, I used the Lawn Fawn “Plan on it: Vacation” stamp set to give the party dog a tiny little glass to cheers with. Finally, I added a cute little dog bone paper-clip to fill the white area above the picture.

Happy Crafting,
