Just and Ink #226 – Happy Birthday Card

By | August 11, 2014

Happy Monday, hope you had a great weekend, back to the daily grind!  Short four day week for me, I have a vacation day set for Friday – my husband and I will be going to the “Rogers Flea Market” for the day, great way to spend time looking for some vintage items and great local produce. Will let you know it goes Saturday!

This weekend I found the “Just and Ink ” blog and thought I would give there challenge a try. Here is the sketch, click on sketch for a direct link back to their blog for other great designs.


For my card I used a unique size – the card base is 3.5″ wide and 5.5″ tall (its top folding), with the stamped image the completed card is 4.25″ wide – or standard size in the United States.   The card base and embossed layer (backed with Stampin Dimensionals) is Crumb Cake, one of my favorite neutral colors.  The starburst is Melon Mambo and the image is a combination of Kinda Eclectic and Beautiful Bunch stamp sets. Greeting is from the Aged Awareness Stamp set, which is photopolymer and makes placement very easy. Here is the card:

    A great card and a great take on this weeks sketch, Karen. I like the circle hanging off the side of the card. It adds a fun element to this bright and cheerful birthday card. Thanks for playing at JAI ♥

    I love that big bright floral panel Karen. The sunburst and leaves really add some great depth and extends that lovely flower. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.
