SHC - Pastel Birthday

... Morning! This is my weekly Seven Hills Craft blog post. It's been prepared in advance as I don't want to be late again!! Last week, while I was full of energy, I not only made Jonathan's birthday card, but I made one for Charlotte his sister. They share their birthday on 30 April - seven years apart!! 

Stamps: Stamping Bella - Oddball Jane Austen; C&9 - Yay for Birthdays; The Greetery - Sentiment Suite Birthday
Inks: Gina K - Passionate Pink, Red Hot, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Lucky Clover, Turquoise Sea, Wild Wisteria; Versafine Clair - Nocturne; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Reverse Confetti - Big Flower Cover Plate
Accessories: White Card; Copic Markers; Clear Embossing Powder; Nuvo - Clear Aquashimmer Brush; Gems; Gina K - Masking Magic

I'm submitting this card to Seize the Birthday - STB#237 but I'm skipping the topping option and going with Anything Goes. I'm also playing along with AAA Birthday - AAAB#37 where the theme is Let's Party. Now it's restrained on the front, but the message inside says it all!!!

I used the cover plate to die cut a pattern in masking paper which I added to the front of a white A2 note card. I lightly blended over a rainbow of inks to create a pretty floral background. I used my MISTI to stamp Oddball Jane onto white card. I removed the image and coloured it with Copic markers. I returned the image to the MISTI, restamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I then carefully cut out the image and added it to the card with dimensional pads. I finished the front with a simple birthday greeting in black ink, some gems and sparkle all over the dress and hat.

For the inside of the card, I cut two pieces of white card. On the large piece I lightly blended the rainbow of inks around the edge to create a pastel border to match the front of the card. On the smaller panel, I stamped a fun greeting and added some bold party confetti.

That's all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. I really do appreciate all your lovely comments. See you soon.
