You can make any kind of birthday card you like - fun, silly, layered, CAS, masculine, feminine - whatever takes your fancy!! Here's my take:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Background Builders Lattice, Flower Power #2
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Blackberry Bliss, Raspberry Ripple, Wisteria Wonder
Dies: Memory Box - Cross Stitched Frames Borders #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU DP - Wisteria Wonder; Gem; Gold Marker Pen
I've made a pretty, feminine card - I need to build up my stash of feminine styled cards. I decided to use some stamps that I've had for a while, but not actually used much (at all!!). I've used the colours from this week's Colour Q - cQc#280 which are all shades of purple. That works out really well as the cue word at CASology - CAS#134 is monochrome. I'm also submitting this to Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#57 as this week's cue word is mask, and I've used masking on my card.
I masked off the rectangle and bottom corner of the card and then stamped this pretty lattice pattern to create a background. I removed the masking tape and embossed the cross stitch frame - for some reason in the photo above it looks debossed, but it is in fact embossed!! I stamped the flower in the centre of the rectangle and added a touch of bling. I used a ruler to add a thin gold border to the background stamping and finished the front with a simple sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer of lilac design paper and on the white panel added a single flower.

The challenge runs for the next two weeks. You can use any stamps in our challenge, although we do love to see designs with Uniko Studio stamps!! You can enter as many times as you want and can combine with other challenges too. You have until Friday 6th March to play along with the challenge. Have fun!!
