Citrus Happy Birthday

Hi guys

Just a quick post to share my final card of the day.

I have made this card for this week's Muse challenge, as well as a few more which are detailed below.  This week's Muse is the fab Marion Vagg.

I have taken the colours and layout of Marion's card and here is my take on it...

Have you ever started something and then got halfway through and wished you hadn't?  Well that's how I felt with this one!  I decided to use the linear flower stamp from Uniko Studio's new stamp set, Flower Power #4.  I stamped it in blue ink in a repeated pattern and then coloured it with ProMarkers which took AGES!  I then stamped in between the main blooms with a ditsy flower from Uniko Studio's new stamp set, Background Builders: Vines.  This was then die cut using a square die and matted onto some blue cardstock.  I then stamped the banner sentiment in blue and popped this up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Uniko Studio - Flower Power #9 and Background Builders: Vines; Clearly Besotted - Mini Basic Banners
  • Ink: Memento - Danube Blue and Bamboo Leaves; Versa Color - Cyan
  • Dies: Xcut - Nested Squares; Clearly Besotted - Mini Basic Banners

And here is Marion's card which we were to use as inspiration...

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps - Challenge #92 - Make Your Mark
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin' - No Designer Paper

Thanks so much for your visit, and that really is all I have time for today.  I hope to see you again soon.

Take care
