Blue and Green Birthday Card

Hello friends and visitors! Do you love cupcakes like me? I've whipped up this yummy birthday card to help Simon Says Stamp challenge blog celebrate their 7th birthday.


At the center of my card is Tim Holtz  Birthday Blueprint Framelits. I won this set on Tim's blog, and I've never used it! Shame on me! I've put my Distress Oxides to work to color both the cupcake and the Spellbinders circle die cut beneath the Tim Holtz doily die cut.


I used an embossing folder and white embossing powder to do some double embossing.  And of course, some more DOX and Distress inks to color my background panel. Here are some close ups of that wonderful chalky color that blends and fades so effortlessly. I can't wait to get the new colors!




Happy Birthday, Simon Says Stamp!


I'm sharing my card with the following challenges:
Card Mania Challenge - CMC#95 Party Happy Birthday, Card Mania!

Thank you for stopping in today and for sharing your thoughts with me!
Hugs and Blessings!

  12. Can't spend too long looking at the cupcake... I do love them but they don't love me... I have had to put out a restraining order on them and I haven't touched the stuff for months. Your background, however, calorie and guilt free, is a delight and your choice of colours, fresh and pretty but not girly, is perfect.
