Don't worry about getting old - Always Happy Birthday #7

Sunday July 1-31, 2018
 
July is always a great month and it's nice and hot in Washington state... I love summer I love heat.. I hope you're having a great summer, getting some beach time.. just traveling and enjoying summer. I hope you have time to play along with us at AHB.
We are back with another month long challenge at
and the theme is BIRTHDAY ANYTHING GOES / OPT: CAKE 
 
 
This stamp set is from Taylored Expressions.. It's an old stamp set. I stamped the images on scraps of Quick Quote dp. I fussy cut the images out and added some copics to give interest in some areas. I stamped the sentiment and used a My favorite things stitch die. I used an embossing folder for the background then layered the images. I used a white gel pen to areas and Spectrum noir sparkle pen. I added the twine.  Was a fun card to create.

Challenges:
Artistic inspirations #203 - anything goes
Crafty creations #369 - anything goes
Cute card Thursday #536 - CAS
As you like it - fav. kind embossing (embossing folders. so many different types out there and give interest to a bg with out taking away from the image.
QKR stampede #301 - anything goes
Crafty catz #423 - anything goes/opt. embossing (dry)
