Summer Birthday


Hi, I was inspired to make this card by a couple of challenges.

Color Throwdown is celebrating their 5th anniversary with a challenge using these summer colours.


Seize the Birthday, is having a month long anything goes birthday challenge.


At Cuttlebug Mania, the theme is Fun in the Sun. I enjoy sitting in the garden on a sunny day enjoying what's flowering or growing in my garden.

I used Memory Box Cherry Blossom and Grove Branch dies with my cuttlebug. The inner melon coloured flower is cut from vellum and painted with twinkling H2O's. I added some stickles to the yellow for some extra sparkle.
The background was a white card base, sponged with blue, then embossed with Stampin Up's cloud embossing folder. The sentiment sticker is from my stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
