Bubble Birthday | ft. MFT's "PI - I Pick You"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.

I personally find sketch challenges very difficult. I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe because I'm such a fan of one layer cards (as you may have noticed) and when it comes to a sketch I feel a need to multiple layers and pattern paper and all sorts of things that I'm not usually comfortable with.

But isn't that really the point of these challenges? To challenge us? I hope so, 'cause that's what's happening for me. And it's a good thing. It breaks me out of my comfort zone and forces me to try new things.

And sometimes, just sometimes, new things are wonderful.

To begin, I used the largest of Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scallop Border Dies to cut down the right edge of my panel.

I then stamped the image and greeting from MFT's Pure Innocence - I Pick You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I then coloured the image in with Copics and coordinate with the bubbles on the patterned paper.

The patterned paper comes from a stack in my stash that has long since lost it's cover, so I'm not sure what brand it is.

I then adhered a 1/2" and a 1/4" strip of the patterned paper directly on to the panel, and popped the panel up on foam tape. For the right side, I put a piece of the same patterned paper down directly on the A2 sized card base, and then put the panel down on top of that.

I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
