Colorful Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday!! I had a little time in my craft room today and I was determined to make a card to participate in my sweet friend Becca's 30th Birthday Bash.


From Becca's mood board for her challenge, I chose bright, bold explosion of colors and circular shapes. It's been a while since I've made a shaped Spellbinders card (you can see the tutorial on how to make shaped cards HERE), so I thought I'd make a circular one and I used a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Circle for the base.


I had the perfect papers for the cards...DCWV's Colorful Life stack. I used a Spellbinders Grand Circle for the bottom layer and popped it up with foam for dimension...actually, all of the layers were popped up with foam tape.


Next, I adhered a Memory Box Large Ringlets die cut in black cardstock with Mod Podge. A Memory Box Stitched Circles die was next, covered with Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves.


Another MB Stitched Circle was added next, along with a banner from My Craft Spot (no longer in business). The happy die and birthday stamp are both from My Creative Time.


This gorgeous DL.ART crinkle ribbon is Red from the Patriotic Bundle.


And this beautiful DL.ART ribbon, which was perfect with the papers, is the Limited Edition Grape-Strawberry Sherbet, which sadly, is currently sold out. I am linking this up with Becca's 30th Birthday Bash.

My sweetest friend, I am beyond ecstatic to be visiting you tonight! How dearly I've missed your precious and inspiring blog. Your cards are stunning... an explosion of colorful beauty. :o) You sure know how to take a mood board and run away with it! The circular shapes feel perfectly celebratory and I LOVE your use of the ringlet die! For some reason I just love that die and it works so beautifully here. The papers and flowers are exquisite, paired together in such an inspiring design. Every style in which you create results in the utmost beauty. Have a sweet and sparkly night, my dearest Lisa. :o)

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
