I used two different digi sets from Clear Dollar Stamps to make this birthday card. The week's CPS sketch (CPS252) was the inspiration for the design.
I used the birthday sentiment from the Totally Tags set and popped up the present from the Birthday Fall Critters set. I colored the present with Copics and accented the bow and polka dots with a glitter pen.
The colors are definitely stretching my comfort zone because brights are not the colors that usually "call my name." But, in the interest of challenging myself, I reached for this colorful Colorbok paper pack.
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), Colorbok
Patterned Paper: Colorbok
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps (Totally Tags, Birthday Fall Critters)
Embellishments/Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder (Spots and Dots), Sakura Clear Star pen, Copic markers, Zutter Round-it-All (1/2"), Spellbinders (Circles - Large & Small)
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
CPS #252 - sketch
Sentimental Sundays #86 - Die Cuts (spellbinders circles)
Birthday Sundaes #40 - Birthday sentiment on the front of the card
Stamptacular Sunday #148 - Seeing spots - use polka dots somewhere on your card
Papertake Weekly - Happy Highlights (highlight something on the card with something glittery or glossy - I highlighted the bow & polka dots with a glitter pen)
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll come back soon.
