Happy Saturday, everyone! I have a bright, cheerful birthday card to share today! Sometimes during SAB or the holidays, we forget the pretty things we have in the regular catalog! So today I'm highlighting Positive Thoughts and Flowers for All Seasons DSP with the sketch from Fab Friday! First, here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
My natural inclination for cards is to use colors that are more subtle or earthy, so to use Magenta Madness really stretches me! But using it in a small amount, like on the butterflies, the banner, and in the background DSP, makes it a little easier for me! The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays was heat-embossed in white and cut with the Banner Punch:
And I used the Nature's Thoughts dies to diecut the butterflies; I also used the Little Treats dies to diecut a stitched circle from So Saffron and the Stitched Shapes dies to diecut one from Magenta Madness. I like how they look layered together! My final embellishments were some rhinestones and gingham ribbon!
Since I used several dies, I am also entering this in the Little Red Wagon challenge, which is to use dies! This card is already in the mail, winging its way to a special friend from church! Thanks for popping in today---be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!
