Fab & Happy Birthday

#stampinup   The sketch on the Fab Friday challenge blog had me stymied for a little bit and then I struck upon an idea that I really loved. I was so pleased when the idea in my head came out on paper!!

For my card, I started with a Thick Whisper White Card Stock base, cut lengthwise. I stamped the zigzag from the "Work of Art" stamp set in Watermelon Wonder diagonally across the card base. I stamped another zigzag in Wild Wasabi. I used my grid paper to approximately align the two segments of the lines. The "break" between the two segments of the zigzag are hidden behind the rectangular pieces.

Then I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock and another slightly larger piece of Wild Wasabi to as a a mat. I stamped a sentiment from "Watercolor Wishes" in Watermelon Wonder and added a small heart from the same set.

I tied a piece of Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine around this element before adhering it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. I thought the card needed a little sumthin-sumthin so I added three white sequins from the Metallics Sequins Collection, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.

  2. Great color combination! Wild Wasabi is certainly a great match with Watermelon Wonder! Great CAS design and the white sequins are a great detail! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
