Happy Birthday

I let myself inspire by the sketch over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges to make a birthdaycard in yellowcolours. I think yellow is a difficult colour to work with. Often when I use it, I have to do like I've done this time - it has to be monochromatic...
I borrowed Hedda's Cuttlekidmachine to make the letters for the birthdaygreeting. I like this font a lot :)
After gluing the letters down I covered them with GlossyAccents - I think it makes such a lovely 3D-effect.
All edges are "torn and ripped" and distressed. I used DistressInk PumiceStone on the edges.
The butterflies are "painted" with crystalstickles. I have several butterflypunches, but it's always this one, from Martha Stewart, I come to use - strange...
I've decorated the inside just using some of the elements from the frontside.
The labels are made with a Spellbinderdie.

So - here's the challenges I'll enter my yellow birthdaycard into:
Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Sketch
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes/ Glitter
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Tuesday Throwdawn - Birthday
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes

  2. How adorable! I find it hard working with yellow, too...probably more than any other color. You did a fab job...cute as can be with all the distressing and I really like the sheet music. Thanks for joining Tuesday Throwdown this week.
