Hello dear friends!
I hope you're having a wonderful day!
I spotted the new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and WOW can you believe it,
it's their 200th Challenge! A big congrats to them all!!
The rules are a little bit different this time around but I think it's a great idea for the milestone they are celebrating and their DT plus a few extras have shared some AMAZING designs. Here's what I came up with ... hope you like it!
My inspiration (as you can tell) came from the colors in the logo and the black & white wording.
I began by creating my background panel from a 4 x 6 sheet of white card stock then colored it using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and a large sponge dauber. After I had the colors as I wanted them, using the Sue Wilson - Perspectives Collection - Happy
I die cut the word HAPPY from the center of my inked panel.
After adhering the word to a scrap panel of white card stock and again to a panel of black card stock for matting, I covered over the area that was originally die cut with my completed HAPPY panel.
By using the small scrap I had cut from the inked background panel, I die cut the word BIRTHDAY and adhered it to a scrap strip of white card stock to complete my sentiment. And, what fun ... I still have the letters that popped out of the die to use for another project!
That's it for me today! I have a busy day of crafting ahead of me so I'd better get busy!!
