HAPPY Birthday

A quick post with a cheerful little card, made in response to two challenges: CASology's 'Cake' cue word and Fab Friday's #121 sketch.
I liked the idea of cake-fireworks - I'll give it to someone who really loves to celebrate their birthday!

Made using:
Stampin' Up Ink (Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight), Paper (Whisper White), Stamps (Endless Birthday Wishes, In the City, and Watercolour Pencils.

Feather Flight

I've previously struggled to find an entry point for quotation/word themed challenges, but just loved Time Out's Challenge #92 sentence: "Paint The Flying Spirit Of The Birds Rather than its Feathers." I had just tried a new sponging and masking technique (thanks as always to Jan for the lesson!) and immediately thought it could be used to suggest the movement - flight - of a feather. I teamed this challenge with the colours from Just Add Ink's Challenge #377 (Lemon Lime Twist, Dapper Denim and Pool Party). I continue to be amazed with Lemon Lime Twist - it teams with so many different colour combinations - it's like an exciting neutral! 

Made Using:
Stampin' Up ink (Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, Dapper Denim), paper (Dapper Denim, Pool Party)
Stamps: Rosie's 'spread your beautiful wings'
Other: francheville rhinestones, watercolour paper
