Sunny Birthday Duo

Hi Everyone,

I have a lovely birthday card to share this week, I especially love the embossed birdy and the single strip of Bakers Twine that is hiding the untidy edge from the sliver of cardstock I trimmed off the top section. (shhh)
 Can you spot the other mistake I made on this card? hmmm – we’ll see if anyone notices ? – But like they say, it’s not a mistake, it’s a unique creation. lol


Sunny Creations & Challenges provided the Sketch & Easel theme while  Dynamic Duos is a colour challenge (somehow I missed the Halloween Theme here – do you think a black bird counts ? lol)  

SC 05912        DD#20

This was a quick and fun card to make, the challenges make it easy by putting your focus on what you need, when choices are plentiful you can sit for hours undecided! lol


An Easel card makes sure you decorate the inside too and what better place for scraps.


I’ve used all Stampin Up products in this card:
  • Stamps – Creatively Yours, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Papaya Collage
  • Designer Paper – Twitterpated
  • Cardstock & Matching Ink – Black & Lucky Limeade
  • Tools: Floral Fusion Sizzlit, Labels collection Framelits, Embossing Powder, Adorning Accents Edgelit & Embossing folder, a single little Rhinestone.
I hope I’ve given you some inspiration, the new Catalogue has some wonderful things in it and I’m having a great time creating with them. Hope you’ll join me again in  a few days time when I conquer my Mojo before Monday again!

Great card Vicki. I can't see any other mistakes myself, but I don't look too hard for imperfections, its the overall look that counts. Love your embossed bird as the focal point. Thanks for joining us at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.


Incredible stamping on this! Love the shade of green and the bird! Great embossed border to!

Fantastic, Vicki. I love, love, love the way you've stamped the foliage on this card - and isn't it a great colour combo? Thanks for playing along with us at Sunny Challenges & Creations; you've made a great easel card.
