I am playing catch up with Summer Camp
and for Day 9 we were asked to use some Christmas stamps for a non Christmas card using this week's colours. I decided to use this Christmas tree stamp from Papertrey Ink Tree Trimming Trio and
I stamped the tree in blue, brown and 2 shades of green and cut small triangles from them to make a banner on a birthday card.
I sponged the sky background and stamped the grass with a Hanging Out stamp, before stamping the washing line from the same set. I stuck on the pennants, added some glossy accents for a little texture, and added 2 felt birds to sing to each other. I like mixing sentiments and I love the Polka Dot Parade stamp set that has the 'Don't worry, be happy' phrase so I added the little musical notes to show the birds are singing. The phrase 'it's just a number' is really speaking to me at the moment because I am reaching my BIG 60th birthday in September and it seems like a big milestone to me!! I finished off the card by cutting a circle for the sun and using a glitter pen to add some detail.
I'm going to enter this into the Moxie Fab World Birthday challenge
Well I'm off to start food prep but thanks for stopping by.
