Let's Party

Hi everyone! I'm happy to be a guest designer once again for Scrapping4fun Challenges! One of my cards was a featured creation a few weeks ago, so here I am! I'm excited to share my inspiration project for Challenge #61 - Anything Goes! We're being sponsored this time by Sheep Ski Designs, so come on and play with us! I created my project in shades of my favorite color (green) which features Andrea's adorable Annabell image!

As I started coloring this image, I envisioned layers upon layers of green cardstock and patterned paper, so I dug out a Basic Grey paper pad that I haven't used in ages (at least three years). Not sure why that particular one came to mind, but it did, along with the rose organza trim and gold cording which I haven't used in quite a while. The only item used on this project that's relatively new in my stash is the stamp set. ;)

I used leftover pieces of cardstock and paper from the front to decorate the inside and stamped a sweet birthday sentiment.

Happy to enter this birthday card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Cricut Greens & Black paper stack, Basic Grey Marjolaine paper pad
  • Stamps: Andrea Norris Annabell digital image, GKD Happy Birthday to You stamp set
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke ink (#126972); Spectrum Noir- FS2, FS3, DG2, DG3, DG4, CT1, CT2, BP1, EB2, EB4, EB6, GB5, PL2, PL4, TB2, TB3, IG4
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers dies, Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders, Spellbinders Classic Circles die
  • Accessories: Wild Orchid Crafts Organza Rose Trim, Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon, Stampin' Up! Pearls (#119247), GKD gold cording, Darice foam

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found some inspiration to whip something up for our Anything Goes challenge this time! Be sure to check out all the fun Sheep Ski Designs digis in Andrea's Etsy Shop! Thanks for stopping by today and we'll see you next time! ;)
