Happy Birthday Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #163)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog

Our theme for this fortnight is #163, Dein erster oder letzer Stempel / Your First or Last Stamp.

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely froggy stamp. :o)

I went with last stamp option and made this Happy Birthday Card. :o)

To make this card I was inspired with a beautiful card I found on Winterlia Designhere.

For my card I used patterned circles stamps from my latest stamp set Uniko Studio Background Builders 'Round In Circles' clear stamps. I was a Uniko #38 challenge winner and received generous prize from Bev, Uniko owner and designer. I got myself this gorgeous stamp set and two Christmas themed stamp sets. :o)

I also used circle stamps from various stamp sets and a sentiment stamp from Jane's Doodles 'Belated Birthday' stamp set (find detailed supply list below).

I stamped patterned circles in black on a white cardstock panel. Then I stamped smaller circles in black and yellow tones. For yellows I used Distress Inks Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. Tiny circle stamps I used are outlined circles and at this point everything looked a bit boring. I colored some of those tiny circles with black marker and Distress Ink Fossilized Amber and made them solid circles. Better!!

Then I stamped the sentiment on the panel, trimmed it a bit, glued it on a slightly larger black cardstock panel and glued everything on a white top folded card base, slightly larger than panel, and my card was finished.

Dimensions of card: 102 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")
