PC1 - Happy Birthday!


I found a new challenge blog - Pinspired Challenges. You know how I love Pinterest! There is no CAS requirement, but you can bet that I'll be staying true to my CAS style!

Here's the inspiration photo for their first challenge:



I focused on the fun, bright colours, the different sized dots and the big number. My daughter's friend turned 10 yesterday, so we'll deliver this to her at church on Sunday.

I used MFT's Vanity Plate Alphabet for the numbers, The Stamps of Life sentiment and various solid dots picked up over the years. I used various colours of  ink, then coloured the dots with a Versamark pen and embossed with iridescent embossing powder for sparkle!

ETA (January 21): Look, I'm a PinPal! This card was chosen as one of the Top 3! Woohoo!



Can't wait to play again!

How cute is this. LOVE your take on the challenge. The color, the dots, the shine!!! It's fantastic! I am loving it!!!

I have a favor. We re-uploaded the linky thing so it would show a thumbnail of your card. I hate to ask, but could you please resubmit it to the challenge site? When I changed the coding, it deleted your entry! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
