A Birthday Card

This is the ‘botched timed challenge’ card I made for the PTI anniversary challenge the other day.

BDAY-005-01

The Delightful Dahlia flower & leaves and also the doily were from my stash box, so this card was pretty easy to put together.  This is one of the better looking flowers I created while I was practicing a bunch trying to line up my Delightful Dahlia Addition stamp layers.  I’m not very good at the layering stamps.  Even with my Stamp-a-ma-jig-thingy.

This was also the first time I had used my new Notched Star Banner Dies, which have been sitting around doing absolutely nothing since they were purchased last August (poor things).  The top layer was cut from vellum.

BDAY-005-4in1

This one is also going into the Color Throwdown #278 challenge gallery as well.

Thanks for stopping by today. ;-)
