This card is a joint effort between ittle Miss C and myself. She coloured a bunch of these PB images about a year ago and has not had time to make them up into cards. Her love of horses and riding has taken over our old card making hours!
I decided to make up one or two of them for her, using mostly pieces from my VOS stash.
I chose another of the garage sale embossed mats and combined it a vivid hot pink scalloped diecut. I have had several of these diecuts stashed away and never managed to use them...the colour has always clashed as it is a bit overly vivid.The image was cut with a Lawn Fawn stitched die and set on the hot pink scalloped die...It looked awful! I rummaged about and found some doilies, so used a smaller lighter pink one to tone down the vivid tones and layered those both onto a larger white doily. Whew...problem solved. Those doilies are very VOS. They were bought for a scrapbook wedding layout I made over 10 years ago!
I layered up some flowers from my stash and made sure the center one was a brighter pink. I used a turquoise brad to hold it together and added another one to the flower on the cupcake. I am a sucker for teensy brads. I know they are not as popular as they once were, but I have tons in my stash so I'm trying to find ways to use them again.
I had a bit of trouble finding a background DP from my bits box so gave up and chose this paper from one of my 6 x 6 paper pads. A wee butterfly from the dollar store finished off my card. I did not add a sentiment as the EF says Happy Birthday over and over!
I am adding this card to the following challenges:
