Celebrations {Scrapy Land Challenge #18}

We always need a stash of birthday cards on hand, so the theme of the new Scrapy Land Challenge #18 is perfect.  It's Birthdays/Celebrations, plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.

The dies I used to create this birthday card are
- Die Versions Sweet Wordlets: Happy
- Die Versions Sweet Wordlets: Birthday
- Sizzix: Susan's Garden - Yarrow
- Sizzix: Susan's Garden - Pine Cones
- Spellbinders: Opulent Ovals

For my birthday card, I started out by applying Pan Pastels (Pearlescent Blue) to white cardstock, creating a mat.  Next, I created an oval in the center of another piece of white cardstock using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals dies.  I tore the edges of this layer before adhering it onto the blue layer.  My message was die cut using Die-Versions Sweet Wordlets: Happy and Birthday and placing them in the center of the oval.

The flowers and leaves were created using some Sizzix dies (Susan's Garden - Yarrow and Susan's Garden - Pine Cones).  A Viva Decor Pearl Pen gives the flower centers a bit of color and Pearlescent Green Pan Pastels gives the leaves a bit of shimmer.

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team has created for you on the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog and upload your creation by May 31.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.
