Birthday Card

There's a lot of birthday in my life this time of year, so I was very grateful that the Paper Girls Challenge blog Challenge #13 was to make something "birthday" related. BONUS for me! 

I tried to keep the card itself simple, just using a little distress ink (walnut stain and broken china) to darken it from a pastel. In this picture it looks very dark, in person it has a lot of green tones. 

The paper is 3 Bugs in a Rug Blast Off!, as are the happy birthday sticker and the die cut with stars. The eyelets are WRMK and the twine is MME Miss Caroline Dilly Dally.


  1. Don't you just love the results when working with Broken China? The colors are so unexpected. I, too, have had a hard time picking up the color differences in the finished product in the pictures. Still, this is a lovely card. Nice job!

  2. I really like the color variations you got on the background of the card! Thanks for joining in again at the Paper Girls Challenge blog!

  3. I really need to play with Broken China a bit more. I only have three colors so there really isn't an excuse!

    And Erica, it's always a highlight of my crafty week when you post a new challenge.

  4. love the water color effect! Thanks for linking with the Paper Girls


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
