Let's Celebrate You

It's the fabulous Imke's turn to host this week's Little Red Wagon and she's calling out, "Happy Birthday!" Given that every single person you know has a birthday, there are lots of options and need for birthday projects. 

I put together a birthday card using one of my MFT layered stencils. I then also ink-blended a strip of paper and die-cut the "you" before heat-embossing the "Let's Celebrate" sentiment. I put everything together and added a few gumdrops and had my card. It wouldn't have taken particularly long except I had tried to stamp directly on the background with the green ink. It turns out that stamping vs. blending provide two entirely different shades. Who knew?! This is when I decided to ink blend the paper and die cut. Much better match! 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created for birthdays. We'd love for you to join us too!
