CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge 258

Hi and welcome to the first of February's challenges. This month Patricia is hosting, and this being the first Tuesday in the month it's time for a colour challenge.

My first thought when I saw the colours was to run off and find a cute flowery image but I then stopped and actually thought about it, changed my mind a few times and then came up with this.

Birthday, Picture Perfect, Oakfield Crafts, StampinUpUk

There's not a dimensional in sight on this card. Everything is glued flat because I wanted to keep it clean and simple.

I started with a piece of Whisper White and stamped a sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set in Berry Burst onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  The first part of the party blower was then stamped in Wild Wasabi straight onto the Whisper White cardstock too. The other parts of the blower were stamped in Powder Pink and Berry Burst onto a scrap piece of Whisper White (two stamps making the one image) and I fussy cut it out before gluing it to the Whisper White piece. The piece of Whisper White was then glued to a larger piece of Berry Burst and then onto the card front.

I hadn't originally intended to add the sprinkles in the corner but felt that it needed a little something so I used all three colours for the "dots and dashes" and then added some Clear Wink of Stella to them. You can't tell from the photo but they do sparkle a little.

Of course, the inside of the card is decorated too - just with the sprinkles.

Don't forget to check out the projects being shared by other members of the design team. You can do so by clicking here.

Happy stamping.

  2. Fiona - I love this birthday card. It's very festive. The confetti in the corner is great and bringing it to the inside just perfect!

  3. Fiona, I love the way you carry your stamping to the inside of your cards. I need to remember to think about that! Love all of the berry color and your decision not to go with flowers!!

  4. Love the addition of those little sprinkles!

  5. Your birthday card is a fun way to show that these colors *can* be used for something other than flowers! :)
