Dotty Birthday

>> Thursday, April 1, 2010

by Julie Warner - The Write Stuff
Happy Thursday!I thought these would be great colors for a bright, Spring birthday card.

I stamped the two sizes of the new dotty circle frames using a rainbow pad and cut them each out using Spellbinders circle Nesties. I used the same two circle Nesties to cut and inside and outside curve for the stamped semi circle birthday greeting. Two color of green chalk ink were used to stamp the dotty leaf on the green band and a coral chalk ink was used to stamp the ladybug background on the large guava layer.

Swiss dots were embossed on the white panel and I used a coral marker to color each raised dot. A scallop dot border punch was used on the narrow guava panel and I added two green faux brads dots all around with a white gel pen. The ladybug & flower were stamped twice, colored with Prismacolor pencils and cut out. I used a stylus on the back of one flower to add dimension before attaching it on top of the base image. Stickles was added in the center.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a splendid Easter!
