Daring Birthday

Hello everyone,

Tonight's card is one of my flubs from yesterday's effort. I built upon it using today's Daring Cardmakers Challenge - What's The Point.

The blue background paper is an unknown from my paper stash. The solid blue paper is Quickutz. The focal element is Stampin' Up Whisper White textured with the Sizzix Stars w/Swirls embossing folder. The blue stars were coloured with Sakura Glaze pens. The sentiment is Stampin' Up It's Your Birthday.

Given the disaster of my initial effort with this card, I just love the makeover! The freshness of blue and white together is very appealing. This is a great clean and simple card which will be perfect for a male birthday.

Please enjoy and come back to SPI again soon.
