Bright Birthday

Hello everyone,

Would you believe that five challenges inspired today's card. Saturday's Crazy 4 Challenges provided an inspiration photo which was paired with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch. July's SmART-Word Challenge was BRIGHT. Today's Practical Scrappers challenge was to use seven or more elements on your project. Finally, today's Oh-La-La Creations Challenge was to create a birthday card. I don't usually use this many challenges on one card but it was really fun to bring it all together.

The background papers are Autumn Leaves Fashionfolio (1). The striped layer was textured with Sizzix Large Dots (2). The polka dot strip is DCWV Nana's Kids (3). The remaining paper is Stampin' Up Basic Black (4) and Whisper White (5). The Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio die (6)was used to cut the black element. The sentiment is Sweet 'n Sassy Birthday Greetings (7). The embellishments are Close To My Heart Sparkles (8). The entire card is highlighted with Star Dust Stickles (9).

I just love this card. I love the colours and the sparkles. It is a youthful and fun card, perfect for a young girl. Maybe I should see if I can do the same with a boys card. That'll take some thought.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
