It’s Your Birthday!

Hi everyone!

There’s a lovely autumn palette for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge (brown, orange, green and kraft) but I decided to put them to use on a birthday card, using the sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I embossed an older wood-mounted stamp from Stampendous and then coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os.

I then used a Spellbinders embossing folder on a square of kraft cardstock and stuck it to my base card. I added some paper from My Mind’s Eye paper and the stamped sentiment to finish off my card.

This card came together very quickly… I really wanted to add some orange and green sequins but talked myself out of it as I think this will end up being used for a chap who isn’t that keen on sequins…. or any embellishments!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a fun card! That centre image is so cute and I can imagine how gorgeous it looks painted in Twinkling H2Os (which reminds me – I really should get mine out and use them!) Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
