~ Bright Shapes Happy Birthday Card ~

I started this card with a Green Galore top folding A2 card, I cut a white panel using Blueprints # 1 from My Favorite ThingsI stamped shapes from the STAMPlorations set called Retro Mod ShapesI used the following Stampin’ Up! ink colors – Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Cool Caribbean, Only Orange, and Daffodil Delight. The happy and birthday was stamped using a set from STAMPlorations called Happy. I embossed the happy in white on the banner that was cut from a Stampin’ Up! banner dieI punched holes on wither side of the banner and tied some yellow twine through and made a bow.

Papers were from in my stash,  the plaid background was die cut with Blueprints # 1 from My Favorite Things. The banner was cut from a Stampin’ Up! banner die. The happy and birthday was stamped using a set from STAMPlorations called Happy. I embossed in white the word happy and stamped birthday with Cool Caribbean ink (SU!)I added a trio of buttons from my Doodlebug button stash and also some white iridescent sequins.

Stamplorations Sketch Challenge # 26

So, it is Sunday afternoon and after spending some time in my craft room – I have a card to post about!!!

Even So-So cards need there time in the spotlight – so even though this did not turn out ANYWHERE near the image in my mind it was for a challenge so I am posting it!!!!

Here is my So-So card – (It really did look cool in my mind!!)

I was going off of this sketch from Stamplorations

Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #26

stamplorationschallengesketch26-web

I have only one set from Stamplorations currently – The set I used is called Vignette: Retro Mod Shapes!!

 I was seriously looking to use that one set to create a chevron look on my card!! I think it looks more like a feather or maybe a blob or maybe with a very big stretch for chevrons that match the sketch!!

The sentiment is from SU! I think – it was a garage sale purchase for the single stamp so not sure about its’ original home!!

So, sometimes things don’t work out but we have to keep going!! I am trying very hard not to categorize this card as a disappointment or an EPIC fail!! Just a learning experience, right?!?!??

Please visit again, I will be creating some more soon!!

In fact – I have a fun card made with some Doodlebug Products to share soon!!
