Happy Birthday - UR GR8

It's time to enter a card into the color challenge at colourQ.

On a panel of white cardstock, geometric images were stamped using Night of Navy and Marina Mist inks. A die cut of geometric design was adhered to the stamped panel, craft foam was added to the back and it was adhered to the navy card base. The craft foam lifts the panel to add dimension.

A banner was cut from Soft Sky and stamped with a sentiment and some hearts and the edges sponged. A yellow heart was cut freehand and stamped with a small sentiment and the edge sponged. The heart was adhered to the banner. A piece of navy seam binding was tied to the banner with a simple square knot. The banner was backed with craft foam and adhered to the card.

The inside of the card was lined with a panel of yellow and stamped across the bottom edge with simple hearts.

  5. This is one very fun and funky creation, and I love how the crisp shades of blue with white are enhanced by that delicate yellow framework. Great idea to echo the sunshiny touch in the heart, which really pops! And kudos for how your modern graphics coordinate with the tech-savvy sentiment, "UR GR8." This card is GR8!!
