I love making cards but for some reason I seem to seldom use the theme of birthdays.
Moxie Fab is featuring a new Birthday issue all of this week so they have issued a few challenges. I love challenges so I knew I needed to create something. I used the challenge that uses a sketch.
I love my stamps from Avery Elle and the matching dies are so perfect with them. I could see this flower stamped in black so that was the starting point for my card. The other part of the challenge is to use all stamps or no stamps so I went with the all stamping part. To keep with that, I decorated my cut hexagons with the tweed background stamp from Hero Arts. Stamping it in black was the perfect choice. The banner die is from Paper Smooches and that sentiment is also from Avery Elle.Here is the Moxie Fab sketch.
And for more birthday fun, I wanted to use the retro sketch and so I went with some supplies from October Afternoon. The vintage card is from a package of embellishments. The sketch was my inspiration for this card although it was followed rather loosely. This fits the Moxie Fab challenge to create a birthday card.
The word "birthday" is a die from PaperTrey, Inc. I thought it was fun to add that to the vintage card.Here is the retro sketch.
