Freshly Made Sketches #470


Lots of Happy going into this birthday card!  I love the fun mix of blues with the pop of yellow found in the Party Time papers.  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.

My card was created by stamping the large Happy sentiment three times in Blue Sapphire ink.  I then went back and added color with Prismacolor pencils, blended out with Gamsol.  My party hat is from the accompanying sticker sheet.  There are presents on the sticker sheet as well, but they did not fit on my card design.  I solved the problem by fussy cutting a few presents to add to the corner.  The hat and presents are popped up with 3-D foam tape for added dimension.  My birthday banner was heat embossed in white onto Blue Sapphire cardstock and popped up with 3-D foam as well. A few bitty sequins finish off the card.
