Happy Happy Happy Birthday Card

Hello!  I'm enjoying some quiet time before the season finale of Downton Abbey and thought I'd pop on and share a card I made yesterday- I was inspired by the most recent AEI♥U Challenge to create a birthday card.  I pulled out my Fill In The Blank goodies (thank you JJ!) and created this card:

Happy Birthday Card 1

I had a modern shabby chic look in mind with lots of gold and watercolored elements.  I think it turned out pretty close to what I had in mind- with a few extra splatters of gold mist!  Sometimes you just can't control that stuff! Hee!

Of course, the Fill In The Blank dies and stamp sets are from Avery Elle.  I used the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder DSP for my diecuts- the watercolored papers are so pretty in this collection!  The gold ink is my favorite- Delicata Golden Glitz.  If you don't have this, you need it!  I used Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold Lame and Georgia Peach for my splattering and the sequins are from Teresa Collins Designs Santa's List collection.

Happy Birthday Card 2

I'm so glad I found time to play along with the challenge- it's Avery Elle's first on their new AEI♥U Challenge blog.  So fun!

Well, I better wrap this up- Downton Abbey is on in just a few minutes now.  I can't believe it's already the season finale!  The season went by so fast- I wish it was a little longer!

Hope you have a great week!
