4 For 1 Birthday



Hello and welcome to a new week!  I have a 4 for 1 challenge card today.  Both the Moxie Fab World and Seize the Birthday are hosting birthday card challenges and one can never have too many birthday cards in one's stash!  I used the bright and cheery colour palette from ColourQ and the CAS sketch from the Paper Players to put my card together.  I played with some neglected Hero Arts background stamps to add some texture to the circle and butterfly and used gems to create antennae.  I love these bold colours together and how they pop off of the white.  It totally says, "Celebrate!" to me!




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo) Stampin' Up, (Turquoise) DCWV
Stamps:  (Sentiment from CL340, Envelope Pattern, Flourish Background) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Signature Series: Butterfly, Double-Ended Banner) Papertrey Ink, (Nesties Standard Circles Large) Spellbinders
Gems:  Recollections

I am LOVING that bright bold colour combo! Feels good to play with some older stuff too, I bet - I know I love digging out old stuff now & then & remembering why I loved it in the first place :) Gorgeous antennae - I have to try that!
