Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, sweet Bill! Happy Birthday to you!
It's my husband's birthday on Saturday, so I made this card for him. I love the bright primary colors of Bo Bunny's "It's My Party" line of papers! I also made this card for a Unity challenge. Last week there was a huge party celebrating Unity's first birthday. I made some other cards, too, but I'll share those on Mother's Day. This one uses this week's CPS sketch (#114) and Unity's anniversary challenge to use a cake for inspiration (this was my inspiration). I was more inspired by the layout of the cake's design than the colors.
I decided that since this card was for a man (MY man!), I wanted to avoid flowers and girlie colors (he'd think I was mocking him - lol). I won these papers in a giveaway a few months ago - so bright and fun! I thought they'd be perfect. Taking my cue from the papers, I colored the party hat with my Prismacolor pencils in matching colors and matted on black. Using a black card base, I adhered the stripe and solid papers. Then I adhered the image to the card front and embellished with buttons. For the inside, I glued a yellow mostly-solid paper from the same pack with more of the stripes on the bottom since this card has a black base. Gotta have somewhere to write a message to my birthday boy!
