A Rosy Birthday

a-rosy-birthday Taking inspiration from Altenew’s November 2016 Inspiration Challenge, I created this pink birthday card featuring #altenew’s Bamboo Rose stamp set.november-challenge_graphic_photoshop

The pink dotted paper was used as a background on a blue card and was also used for the “happy” die cut, which was cut twice and then glued together and glued onto the card.  “Happy” was highlighted with chalks to make it stand out against the background of the same paper.

The sentiment was stamped on a scrap of paper used for the card and attached over the die cut.  Sequins were added to the card.
