Colorful Birthday


Today I have a card in honor of the first birthday of my friends over at Neat and Tangled. Danielle and her crew are so wonderfully fabulous, so I was happy to celebrate! Be sure to stop by their Little Tangles Challenge Blog to see more.

This card was so quick and simple to put together. I just stamped the “happy circle” repeatedly… allowing my Hero Arts Shadow Inks to overlap and blend. Fun, huh?

I also added punched stars covered in Glossy Accents.

It is amazing the fun cards you can create with one stamp set and a few inks. You could easily make this a card for a guy by using masculine colors! However, I am currently addicted to rainbow sherbet colors. I can’t get enough. What crafting color combos are you addicted to these days?

Happy birthday Neat & Tangled! Adore you.

    Another fun card, Jennifer! It is a happy card for sure! Love the colors! Any colors that are Caribbean and beachy are my favorite combinations.

    Great card, such a simple idea and I do love those sherbert colours. I seem to use a lot of blues and greens as my go to colours
