Seize the Birthday - This Way


Happy Monday!

I'm hoping this week will be a little more creative than last week.  I'm coming off of a very creative weekend, so fingers crossed I can continue it while balancing things in the office. 

I recently came across a new challenge called Seize The Birthday.  It appears they usually have sketch challenges, but this week was an "Anything Goes Challenge."

I decided to play along, and here is my design . . .

I used supplies from February's Simon Says Stamp Card set.  The paper was so bright and fun, it was perfect for a birthday card.  I stamped the sentiment using colors to match the dots on the paper.  The chipboard arrows were painted with white paint.  I then embossed them using Stampin' Up's Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  Two layers and I got plenty of sparkle and shine! 

Loving the colors, and I adore those arrows. 

Supplies Used
Cardstock:  Bazzill from February Simon Says Stamp Card Kit
Pattern Paper:  Basic Grey from February SSS Kit
Stamps:  Thinking of You from February SSS Kit
Ink:  Stampin' Up and Versamark
Other:  Chipboard Arrows from Maya Road, Ranger Blank Canvas Acrylic Paint - both from February SSS Kit
Tools; Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder
