Carousel Birthday

This is a card that evolved!  After the Christmas rush, I made myself tidy and clean my craft room (I even finally got around to painting the ink storage units that I bought a couple of years ago!).  Part of the resolution involved using up the growing pile of extras and rejects - things that hadn't quite made it into previous projects and had been cluttering the end of my table.  Such had been the fate of the pretty pink shimmery sunburst until now.

Using up a spare sunburst in pink glimmer paper

It was the work of minutes!  I stamped the carousel in Basic Black onto a square of Crumb Cake and cut a Basic Black mat for it before round cornering.  

With markers, I added a touch of Basic Gray to the legs of the crousel and Melon Mambo to the cupcakes. I then added some sequins to go with the glimmer paper.  The sequins on the cupcakes are from the Brights Sequins Collection and the larger sequin in the centre is from the Good Vibes Project Life Accessory Pack.

I stamped the greeting in Basic Black onto Crumb Cake and cut it out with a square Stitched Shapes framelit, then added a Basic Black mat.

A brightly coloured horse relieves the starkness of the inside of the card

Inside the card, I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that was already trimmed.  It's smaller than I would normally use but, as it turns out, I don't mind the larger border!

To offset the large area of black, I stamped the horse in the corner and coloured it bright colours with the Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter.

Thank you for your visit.
'Til next time!
