PCCCS170, JUGS319 and STB


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Taking a break from Christmas cards and squeezing in a couple of challenges today with a birthday card!  Seize the Birthday is an “anything goes” challenge, Paper Craft Crew Challenge has this sketch:

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 170. #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

and the trend week at Just Us Girls is watercoloring:

So here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Cheer All Year Paper Pumpkin Birthday 

I dampened a piece of watercolor paper and lightly dabbled on some Lost Lagoon ink.  I pulled some papers from the Pretty Petals stack for my banners, then stamped the feathers from Cheer All Year for the focal point. 


A Paper Pumpkin birthday sentiment stamped in Basic Black was bold enough to work against the watercolored background.  I also added a few sequins from my stash, added some black glimmer paper elements,  and speckled some color on with a wet paintbrush.  My sentiment inside is from Cottage Greetings and I stamped another feather as well:


It’s off to the mailbox this card goes!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy went to her friend Gabby’s birthday party on the weekend.  Gabby is all about glam and glitz….Cassidy?  Well, she apparently hasn’t given up Halloween yet, LOL!


Enjoy your day!
