Birthdays are full of sunshine….

Hi everyone!

The theme for the Time Out Challenge’s 4th birthday challenge is ‘birthday’ and here is my take. I decided to play along with the Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge as well as I have a few Concord and 9th products that I was itching to use.

I started with a background I created with a couple of distress oxide inks to cut the rosette from the Hooray Ribbon die set. I followed the helpful C9 video to fold the rosette – I must confess that this took MUCH longer than I expected mainly because I’d used a very thick cardstock so it was quite difficult to fold the card along the score lines.

For the sentiment, I inked up a stamp from the Cuddles and Hugs stamp set and cut the ‘happy’ from the Happy Balloons die set. Finally to create the background, I used the Polka Dot Turnabout stamp with distress oxide inks.

Although it took a long time, I really enjoyed using so many of my C9 products – great fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Congrats on doing such an amazing rosette-it looks fab and the colour super! It was worth trying a few times. Super use of the sketch and so pleased you joined us for our 4th Birthday at Time Out x


  3. I love that rosette – it is definitely worth all the time you took to fold it – it adds the perfect amount of dimension to your card. Super fun birthday card – thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill


  4. Love this, the colors just make me happy. I don’t have that rosette, and I don’t know why. Ha. Thanks for joining us at Where Creativity Meets C9!
