Saturated Canary's Challenge #47 is to create a celebration card so I made a birthday one (always in need of those!). I also made this for Just Add Ink's Challenge #173 to just add water (I did lots of water bubbles, rather than attempt to just colour the whole background in blue for the sea and for Papertake Weekly's Challenge, Old, New, Borrowed or Blue. I used some old patterned papers in blue with a new to me digi stamp and a new border die.

And here she is...


Stamps: Pearl Digi Stamp from Saturated Canary, Asian Fusion from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Baja Breeze (Retired), Crumb Cake, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card, Seaside Collection Patterned Papers from KaiserCraft

Inks: Baja Breeze (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Copic Markers

Accessories: Baja Breeze Seam Binding (Retired) from Stampin' Up, Lace from stash, Tab #2 from Crafty Sentiments, Paper Flowers and Pearl Stems from Wild Orchid Crafts, Die-Namics Dainty Lace Border Die from My Favorite Things, Baby Blue Liquid Pearls, Baby Blue Stickles

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
