Sadly there will not be a Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge this week because hackers have got into Cindy's account and it will take some time to rebuild everything. We hope to be back before too long, but until then, here is a bright birthday card I made. I took THIS week's image from the Muse challenge blog and using the teal and red colours and the cake, I came up with this card
I love a bright, cheery birthday card, and I think this design would be suitable for anyone from a child to an elderly person. I used my new stitching die to cut holes in the top two panels and stitched the line with embroidery floss. The birthday cake was a slim silver metal embellishment, but I coated it with Versamark and Zing embossing powder
to make it more suitable for this project. The blue and red balloons were cut from stripey paper but I didn't have a yellow stripey one, so I stamped a plain yellow balloon with a striped background stamp.
I'd also like to enter this into the Great Impressions January Challenge which is to use something new, and the Lawnscaping Challengel which is celebrating its 4th Birthday. So Happy Birthday Lawnscaping!!
Thanks for stopping by.
