Several weeks ago, I saw this card and was smitten. I adored the colors, the shaker, just the whole happy scene. I started this card last weekend, but didn't have time to finish. This one has one of those wax paper resist backgrounds I made. I liked how the embossing folder made me think of wind It's kind of hard to see because of the sequins but it's there.
I did change things up a bit from the card I was inspired by(yay, me). The background for one and instead of using a stamp for the happy birthday sentiment, I used a Lawn Fawn scripty die and inlaid the cut. It took a bit of patience to stick those bitty parts back in, but I think it was worth the effort. I added some clouds just for fun. I know you can't see it in the less than stellar photo, but I "Winked" up the clouds and the snail shells and even the scripty saying. I also added some white gel dots to the birthday present. Mainly I used Gleeful Gardens from Lawn Fawn. The Sun and clouds are from the LF die set called Spring Showers. I love the "stitching" on these dies. I colored the images in using my trusty pencils and odorless mineral spirits.
This was a fun one to create and makes me smile.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!Hugs,
