Did you see this week's color throwdown (ctd466)?  Such beautiful fall colors, I absolutely adore them-and they aren’t colors I normally use when creating. But that’s half the fun right; giving you a chance to step out of your comfort zone and create something new and different. Even more amazing? I didn’t create with florals! LOL

I used this fun stamp set from Avery Elle, Brushed-I used distress inks to stamp the stripes at different lengths and at this point I totally changed my plan, and used the fun funky blueprints to cut the main panel. I then embossed the happy birthday and splatters in Ranger gold. The 'happy birthday' didn't pop much, so I added a shadow with a white gel pen, layered it on some sparkle gold from MFT, and then created a top panel embossing the stripes and highlighting with gold Delicata ink.

I mounted everything on a top folding card base, and decorated the inside also. Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week!


Stamps: Avery Elle Brushed
