Creative Embellishments July Challenge

Time for a new challenge at the Creative Embellishments Blog.  Here's the mood board, something will surely inspire you!  This twist this month is to use a birthday theme.

My Take on the Challenge

It's pretty obvious where the inspiration for this card came from as you can see one of the photos on the mood board is lilacs, and so, I chose Stamperia's Lilac Flowers collection to make this card.  

I use a pretty photo corner in the upper left to anchor my lovely Little Birdie Crafts flowers.  The sentiment is from Small Sentiment Words set.  I used Stampendous Aged Wine Embossing Enamel to color both pieces of chipboard.  Then I just diecut several layers for the front.

I did a simple pop up on the inside using the pretty papers to make layers.

Step Card

The 2nd card is a step card that will stand up so prettily all on its own.  

  I used a Scribble Frame to group and highlight my chose embellishments.  It looks so nice on the center pane of the card.  I treated the frame with Stampendous Shabby Chic White Embossing Enamel.

I thought the pink polka dotted paper insdie was so pretty, I just left it as is and added the words from the Birthday Word set also heat embossed with Stampendous Shabby Chic White Embossing Enamel.
