A Treat Bag Card

Hi Everyone!

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.

Card Recipe:

Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Painted Blooms DSP
Stamp Sets: Balloon Bash, Age Awareness
Inks: Crisp Cantaloupe, Rose Red, Versamark
Tools/Techniques: Big Shot, On Film Framelits, Gold Sequin Trim, 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon - Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride Embossing Powder, Mini Metallic Clothespins, Treat Bag Framelits
