A Chic Birthday


Like the soft look of the photo? Well, you can thank my son’s big ol’ thumbprint for that! I didn’t realize until I’d gotten into editing the photo and I was too tired to take it again!

This card is based on The Paper Players latest sketch and The Friday Mashup theme – two of my favourite challenges!

I’ve got to make this quick and I think most of this is self explanatory – I’ve got a few special Fascinator Frenzy posts to get working on!

The base is Basic Black and I’ve layered it with Cherry Cobbler and then Whisper White. The Whisper White layer is embossed with the Stripes embossing folder (LOVE). Then, I stamped a sentiment from Delightful Dozen in Basic Black and then just the happy birthday again in Cherry Cobbler.

The sentiment panel has some silver mini brads in each corner (yummy!). I added a looped bow of Heirloom fabric and a couple of folded circles with fun embellishment centres.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget that tomorrow is the start of Fascinator Frenzy!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler.

Ink: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler.

Stamps: Delightful Dozen.

Accessories: Big Shot, Stripes embossing folder, Silver mini brads, Heirloom fabric, Antique Brads, Trinkets, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch.
