Mauve and gentle Yellow Birthday Card

JAI 401 Barb Derksen 1

Not the greatest photo of my card ever, however I feel fortunate just to have a window to create this card and get it posted!  I’m a week home from Houston, Texas and I’m sooooo sick.  Just a cold/flu thing I cannot seem to shake. I’ve slept on and off for two days, hopefully tomorrow will dawn bright with me feeling better.  I made this card based on this week’s sketch from Just Add Ink #401

loved the simplicity of this sketch which allowed me to bring this together quickly, using scraps of DP and to use my crafting purchase from when I was in Houston, these spellbinders scalloped circles. 

I layered up atop a blank cardstock base, with a folder embossed layer, then two layers of DP backed with coordinating colors of cardstock.  The finishing touch is the Happy Birthday using a My Favorite Things stamp and then backed with this lovely foil scalloped circle. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What great paper to use on your card, and I love how the sentiment circle looks like a flower on a stem. Happy accident or deliberate? Doesn't matter - it looks great! Thanks for joining in with us at Just Add Ink.

  4. Clever usage of designer series paper for your creation Barbara. The embossing of your background adds a lovely dimensional feel to the card too. Hope you are feeling better soon! Thankyou for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week x
