Birthday wishes

Hi there!

The Muse card club is celebrating their 200th challenge!

Jenni created the sweetest card for this occasion... I love it so much and think that the elements she used for her design works just so well, that I didn't want to try anything 'clever ' this week !

So I used all of her inspiration, as is... just with supplies I have available  😊



A closer look:



Polka dots                  ✔
Flower                        ✔
Color combination     ✔
Birthday card             ✔
Layout                       ✔

Same... but different !

The branch in bloom is another design by Tanya Batrak Design ID #147869 in the Silhouette store. LOVE her designs!

Because I wanted to color the image, I decided not to cut it as is, but to use the black fill option. I added a small offset and use the print and cut function. So I basically transformed a cutting file into a digital stamp. After printing and cutting, I colored the image with my Promarkers.
The background is digital polka dot patterned paper, cropped to create a circle background for the flower.
I added my own sentiment, shared below . Feel free to download it for personal use:





Fonts used:
Anton
Century Gothic

It's all Greek to me, Hannelie, but as long as you keep making such fabulous cards with the Silhouette I'll skip past the details and just admire your beautiful cards.
