A big month for us, my son turned 18 last week and I am a little excited and scared at the same time. Nonetheless, I am happy he is looking forward to his future.
I made a birthday card for the Stampin' Celebration Sketch Challenge (SC135).
To be honest, the card wasn't for my son. It was for a nephew. A lot of September birthdays for us!
I pulled out my Confetti Celebration Wood Mount Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I love this stamp set, lots of fun celebratory images! I thought the string of lights would be cool to stamp along the card with the Happy Birthday image! I stamped everything in basic black archival ink and then colored the lights with Stampin' Write Markers. I decided to use Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo.
I used die cut the stars from the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies using Copper Metallic Paper. I like the way the shiny copper paper added a little brightness to the card.
Hope you can join us at Stampin' Celebration this time, I would love to see how this sketch inspires you!
