Hello friends. Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with family & friends! It was a fun filled 3 days of celebrating for me and my family, but I'm ready to get back to "normal", like playing along with Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop! Another fun and colorful inspiration photo this month to inspire us along:
The colors reminded me more of a birthday celebration than Christmas, so I went with the colors and used the new Celebrate Big stamp set for my card:
I used the Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Dies for my card base and top layer, and then die cut the "Celebrate" from the top layer piece. I used Hibiscus Burst to blend the ombre color onto the die cut, and then inlaid it back in to the top layer. I die cut the little banner flag from Aqua Mist and then heat embossed the pole in gold. Here's a closer up photo for you to see this better:
I also die cut the flag streamers and stamped them with New Leaf, Limeade Ice, & Aqua Mist inks. The little stars were stamped in Buttercup Yellow. I also added a few matching enamel dots, a few sequins (to give the party effect, ya know?!!), and a piece of pink bakers twine and some gold thread at the top. It's a small little set, but I think it packs a BIG punch for a birthday card...or other BIG celebrations too! :0)
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! And now I'm off to see how everyone else was inspired by this months inspiration photo. You can too...right HERE.
