If you’re looking for my Time Out DT post from earlier today, it’s here … otherwise, stay tuned! I was honoured and excited to be the inaugural Surprise Party Guest at Seize the Birthday during October … and I’m equally thrilled to have been asked by the lovely Nancy to stay on for the November party too … way to celebrate! This fortnight we have no toppings at all … in other words, you can play along with any birthday card you create … I went for typical party decorations on mine … shiny balloons and shimmery confetti …
An almost one layer card, stamped with a sentiment from SSS and balloons from Winnie & Walter. The balloons were masked and each triple/partially stamped with various shades of the same colour to give them a sense of dimension … and of course they were treated to lashings of Wink of Stella and a generous helping of Glossy Accents, as befits a birthday party! This was one of those moments where a MISTI would’ve been handy … without one, though, I went all old fashioned and eyeballed it … it seems to have worked out ok! The strings and little bow were hand drawn, I added the strip of DP down the side and scattered some confetti stars around the sentiment.
We’d be delighted to have you playing along with us at Seize the Birthday … there’s a heap of inspiration from the DT over at the blog … and for those of you in the throes of Christmas card making, just think what a lovely change it would be do make something completely different! Hope to see you in the gallery!
My celebratory card is heading off to …
Virginia’s View – All About Texture … mine is subtle … the linen effect card base, the stars and the shiny and dimensional Glossy Accents
Winnie & Walter – Join In To Win … my balloons are from W&W
SSS Monday – So Glossy
