Hi, Friends......

I am here with a fun birthday card to share. Okay...be honest and tell me.....Am I the ONLY one who still has some pretty "bubble wrap" backgrounds leftover from Darnell's challenge last year?????  This technique was a ton of fun.....even though not a single one of my backgrounds turned out like it was supposed to!!!  lol...

Being the mad alchemist that I am....I've never been one to let strange and weird results deter me.  So I plunged headlong into a crazy "bubble wrap and reinker" frenzy.....making a ton of them. As a result, I still have quite a little stack remaining in my stash. The Scraps and Strays challenge (that's what I call it!) over at Winnie & Walter seemed like the perfect opportunity to get them out again. :) I selected a pink bubble wrap background and teamed it with other stash scraps and sequins for a card that makes me happy just looking at it!!

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy stamp set
Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry and Walnut Stain
Glossy Photo Paper
DCWV Mercury Glass cardstock scrap
Core'dinations cardstock
Sequins from stash

I really love how this card turned out and might make more of this design in other colors sometime!! Thank you for stopping by!!

  2. Eeek! This card is SO full of fun and color and makes me want to dance! I love that bubble wrap background and the heat embossing on the middle sentiment. I barely got even one bubble-wrap type background made for Darnell's challenge last year so I applaud your enthusiasm. No wonder you always have a big stash of wonderful backgrounds to inspire you.

  3. Fabulous - love the bubble wrap background... so cool xx

  4. So festive with the bubble wrap background.

  5. What a stunning card Janis! My favourite colour and of course I adore the die cuts on your pretty background. Great stuff - and the cat did make me laugh!
