Birthday Wishes

Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

Lots of celebrations this week...Canada Day, my husband's b-day, and Independence Day! To celebrate, I made this simple little card using Patti's Kids large birthday in envelope stamp from Stamp N Plus. It's such a fun image to play with.

I coloured the hand, cupcake, and envie with my Prisma pencils. The balloons were paper pieced with the middle one popped up on foam tape for added dimension. The image was cut out with a Spellbinders die, matted in black, and doodled around with a Micron pen.

The background consists of a scrapbox patterned paper, matted on black, with two rows of ribbon adhered under the focal. The image was popped up on foam tape and a satin ribbon pull was added. Three glittery brads were added to allow the image piece to tuck into the corner.

Clean and simple, and I got my colour fix :)

Enjoy the celebrations, wherever you are. There's always something to celebrate and be grateful for!
Thanks for visiting. Remember to check out the Anything Goes Challenge on the Stamp N Plus Scrap N blog. We have some cool entries already :)

Life is good; so is art.

Those 2 rows of ribbon add just the right accent to give emphasis and dimension to the focal point.
