Celebrate Your Birthday

I think this Just Add Ink challenge was designed especially for me so I can add the piece I had left over from the last time I entered into their challenge -LOL!!!!
It was a few weeks ago when they had a Nautical But Nice Challenge and I made this card. So if you check it out, you'll see I cut a piece off the side of my water-coloured panel, and there it was lying on my craft table.

Setting The Scene: I need to get tidied up here for my Catalogue Launch next Friday, but I am distracted by my computer. Next I spy some of the design team entries popping up on FB and click on over to JAI to view the sketch. WOW! that's perfect for my left-over scrap. So the tidying goes to the back-burner AGAIN, while I throw together this card.

Maybe I'm being a bit silly and light-headed because I have just begun two weeks of school holidays but... do you like this card?

I embosssed Strawberry Slush card with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder from SALE-A-BRATION. What a surprise that something from SALE-A-BRATION has gone into our new catalogue, but I'm VERY happy about it. I think the dots from Happy Watercolor looks very similar, so I stamped then with the Gold Encore stamp pad. The young lady, champagne glass in hand, has been very roughly watercolored, using Stampin' Write Markers and an Aquapainter. There are three images in this stamp set, In This Together and you can purchase from July 1st. Amazing Birthday has the Happy, Happy Happy, Happy birthday to you, so I stamped in gold and then scattered a few rhinestones about, cos you can't have too much sparkle, can you?

It's so windy in Melbourne at the moment, quite worried that a big tree doesn't fall on the house...
enjoy your weekend
