Where Creativity Meets C9 - Honorable Mention

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. The topping this time is Anything Goes, so feel free to join us with any type of card, as long as it is birthday themed!

Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes

Here’s my inspiration for this time –

Happy Birthday

I made this card for a dear friend of mine, who celebrated her birthday just a few days ago.. so she already has this card with here. πŸ™‚

I started with stamping the beautiful blossoms from Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set using Antique Linen distress ink on Canson watercolor paper. I then colored them using Prisma color pencils, then watercolored them for a soft look. I then went back with my Unibal Signo black and gold gel pens to add the flower centers and a few dots here and there. The sentiment comes from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.

Happy Birthday

I then die cut the panel using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics, then mounted it on a pale yellow card base.

And here’s how the envelope came up. I stamped it with the same image, using Hero Arts Soft Granite, then only gave the flowers the least bit of coloring.

Happy Birthday

Submitting this card to the following challenges –

Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge #8: One Layer Card (this is not strictly one layered, but as mentioned in the challenge, so very flat, that it can be considered as not having multiple layers! πŸ˜‰ )


Timeout Challenge #82: Flowers with the optional twist of Kissing (I didn’t use the optional twist of Kissing)

Marker POP Challenge #119: Watercolor Florals
