So I don't know about you but ever since I saw the Treat Bag Framelits in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalogue, I have been dying to use them! This past weekend we had a surprise party for a friend's 50th birthday so I thought it was time to break out the treat bag and have a little fun.
Here is what I created:
In the treat bag I put a little note card in Blushing Bride and Whisper White card stock with a "Happy Birthday" sentiment but I forgot to actually take a snap of that...oops! In order to let the "celebrate" portion of the sentiment pop more, I embossed it using Blushing Bride embossing powder and fussy cut the banner out. I think it adds a little more depth to the creation.
As per normal, I was inspired by the following challenges:
1. Create with Connie & Mary
I was just in love with this week's colour challenge - Rose Red (this is fast becoming one of my favourite colours!), Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss (another of my favourites!). How could I not play along?!?!
2. Seize The Birthday
I love building up my stash of Birthday cards and playing along and being inspired by the ladies over at Seize the Birthday certainly helps in this area. This week I chose to play along with the "Anything Goes" portion of the challenge.
