Seize the Birthday + MHKDesigns: Bold Birthday Roses


Hi, friends!  I hope your July has been going by with lots of crafty times!  I am back with another creation for the current challenge at Seize the Birthday!!!  I've been having tons of fun with this talented DT, and I hope you've been playing along with us!




You can never have too many birthday cards, and I can't wait to share with you what I have for this fortnight's challenge!  The challenge for the next two weeks is "Anything Birthday Goes" with a topping option of "Bold & Bright". Check out my creation...


I used the Simple Rose digital stamp set from MHKDesigns for the image on this card.  I water colored the images then added splatters to the panel for more texture.  I kept the shadowing simple to draw the eye more towards the middle of the card because it contains...  


...the sentiment!  This one is from the Eat Your Cake digital stamp set and was printed onto vellum before being stapled to the card.  Some washi tapes add a bit more pattern and glitz and help anchor the diagonal sentiment.  A few sequins help to add more shine and bring more green to the card.


The focal panel was added to the card base with dimensional foam to add a bit more depth to this creation.  I love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation today, friends!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun at Seize the Birthday!  I'll be back soon with more paper crafted creations to share with you.  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
