Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone! I’m here today with a card using a couple of sketches from 2 different challenges. I know it’s ironic that I decided to combine two sketch challenges because realistically it would just be a mess. But both sketches I used are very similar.

This card is an entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch —

CTS_105

 

And this is sketch for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge.

210

So when you look at both sketches, they are very similar. A frame/panel, a focal point on the left and the sentiment next to it. The only difference is the orientation. So I may be crazy but I decided to incorporate both sketches and make it my own.

Here is my card —

Happy Birthday Doggie

 

I started this card with some Carnation layering paper from Hero Arts cut to a landscape card with the fold on top. I used the star backdrop from Lawn Fawn’s Teeny Tiny Backdrops. I wanted to stamp the background and have a tone on tone effect, so I used Cotton Candy ink from Simon Says Stamp. For the frame, I used the two biggest rectangles from the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle dies. I cut a frame from some gold paper from the Glitzy Glitter paper pack from Die Cuts With A View.

For the focal image, I stamped the dog from the Cupcake Cutie set from My Favorite Things and colored it in with Copic markers. I will have all the colors in the supply list below. I cut the image with a circle punch and I cut another balloon and adhered it with foam adhesive. I also added some clear Wink of Stella to the balloon and the ribbon on the dog. Then I added Glossy Accents to the balloon. For the sentiment, I stamped the birthday greeting from the same Cupcake Cutie set on a strip of Carnation layering paper with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

To finish the card, I placed some gold and pink enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye.

That’s it for this card. For a complete list of the supplies I used, please check the supply list below.

Thank for reading! See you soon.
