Hey, it's probably party time somewhere, isn't it? The truth is, I used up all my birthday cards in July so I set about making more. Then it turns out I have only one August birthday. There goes all those cute summertime birthday cards I'd planned to make. I suppose I could start preparing for next year, but I figure this one will work regardless the season.
I used three images and a sentiment from Power Poppy's new Party Time clear stamp set. I do love a set where everything works together so well. I gave this one a lot of the clean white space I fancy sometimes, but it's still very colorful. There's sugary gumdrops on the cake and shimmer on the ribbons and banner and the candle glow.
You can see the Wink of Stella shimmer a little better in the photo below. I know that you know it's much prettier in real life.
The yellow package was dotted with a white gel pen. My color choices came from a pad of designer paper which I decided not to use after all. The frame is simply an oval cut in the center of the cross stitch panel. I think that covers it. I'll list supplies below. Have a happy day!
