On Trend Birthday

Fresh Squeezed Stamps On Trend 2013

Pink and orange hot distress ink sunset as the backdrop to my shiny silver city. Another quick entry for the 10 Minute Craft Dash. After inking and misting I heat set the background for a minute and liberally covered it in powder from my magic bag. I had all the stamps on one block and quickly restamped the skyline before heat embossing in silver. Masking tape and sequin ribbon to ground the image and stop the clock. 9 minutes 54.13 seconds, yay!

Lots of glitter and shine for a sparkly new year birthday. Outside the 10 minute window I added some die cut letters to personalise the card. This card is also for Sentimental Sundays 'Pick from our Favourite Challenge', under Challenge #170: Happy Birthday and Papertake Weekly Challenge: Pick of the Year under the challenge from June: Hot Hot Hot.
