Ok, so if I could go anywhere for my birthday, there’s a good chance it’d be the beach– a nice quiet one where no one is there to kick sand in my face or flash the cellulite on their bum as they prance by me wearing too little in what I must assume is a desperate attempt to get more Vitamin D– poor dears… so deficient…
So, when Impression Obsession did this challenge for their CHA releases (greeting card) I decided to make my own “birthday card.” You know, I owned a vertical birthday stamp from River City Rubberworks, but I liked this one so much better. So I bought it. And I don’t feel guilty at all.
I love the card, but it is kind of boring. I get that. I can take it. Yep, yes I can. The second view doesn’t show the greeting. Oh well. The next one does. Why did I do two? I don’t know! You tell me!
Stamps: Impression Obsession “Sand Castle” and “Vertical Birthday”
Paper: Michael’s metallic paper, scraps, and white
Ink: SU Sahara Sand (what else for a sand castle?)
Accessories: SU ruffled ribbon in this year’s in color blue of some alliterative name that will probably annoy me and star brads. Pretend they’re fish.
Techniques: Colored pencils
