SR#268 & Retro Sketches #154

What a fun day of creating I had ~ knew I wanted a birthday card but didn't have a starting place so I went on a hunt to find the challenges that would fit with the Big Day stamp set ~ I found this great sketch to follow from retro sketches #154 
and then this wonderful color challenge at Stampin' Royalty #268  


I can't believe this is the first time I've used the Large Polka Dot EF ~ I fussy cut around the banner and used Dimensionals to give it some depth ~ coloured each letter in CAKE to go along with the color challenge and then added Crystal Effects to each letter ~ I am pleased with the finished card, but it does look much nicer IRL

  1. Great job! My favorite stamp set. Thank you for taking the stampin royalty challenge.

  2. So glad I checked in here today to see this fun birthday card. I've been creating some lately too with the anniversary and birthdays this month.
    Your card is wonderful. I love the way you've coloured each letter a different colour and the fussy cut banner. That button is a fun addition and it mirrors these large polka dots perfectly.
    I'm so happy to see that you had some time to create.

  3. I've just been stamping with that stamp set too! Cool card, I love how incorporated the color challenge from Stampin' Royalty. Thanks for playing along with us!
