Happy Birthday- Celebrating with Three Challenges
This weekend has been a wonderful so far celebrating birthdays in our family (three birthday celebrations this week) :-)).
Today we celebrated my twin nieces 18th birthday (I will be posting their cards later this evening) but wanted to share the card I created for my stepmother- we will be celebrating her later today :-)
I decided to use the ColourQ CQC208 Color Challenge along with the fabulous PPA173 Pals Paper Arts Sketch and the Just Add Ink JAI184 “Just AddBows” Challenge (again, I hope you will take the time to visit each challenge site- amazing Design Team samples as well as other entries!! :-)).
To create this card:
In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the stamp image Pleasant Poppies and resize. Print the image using your computer printer and punch out with the 2 ½” Circle Punch.
Punch another circle from Basic Black cardstock using the 2 ½” Circle Punch, cut in half.
Color the image using SU! Watercolor Pencils and adhere the Basic Black pieces to the outside edge to give a frame to the Poppies. Adhere to a Chalk Talk Frame (created with the Big Shot™ and the Chalk Talk Framelits™ from Basic Black cardstock), add the row of Pearls at the bottom edge of the frame along with the banners from Real Red Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Add the 5/8”Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow and adhere the sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punched with the Word Window Punch and adhered to a Basic Black frame punched from the Modern Label Punch).
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Pretty Prints Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White and adhere it to the Basic Black card base.
Add the vertical strip of Basic Black cardstock along with the Real Red DSP , adhere the focal image and add the Pearls to the sentiment and at the top of the tag frame to finish off the card.
