TSC Birthday Bash

The Stamping Chef has a weekly progressive freebie competition on their Facebook page TSC Recipes.

You email for the image, which is this case is Birthday Bash, you upload a card in the folder, you get lots of lovely comments from some very nice people and the chance to win a free image. If you ask for the freebie you MUST make a card with it though or you will not be allowed to get freebies again, it’s only fair J

I coloured the image with Promarkers using zingy colours of lime green, orange, yellow, red and a spot of brown for contrast. The image has been fussy cut and mounted on 3d foam. I used a die to cut the lacey panel and added some glitter card under the image.

I used the latest sketch from I {Heart} Card Sketches for the layout. The base gingham paper is from a freebie pad with a magazine. The orange and brown are from Desert Blooms First Edition pad and the flowery paper is from the Hideaway pad. All except the base layer are snippets including all the cardstock used for matting and layering. I used a Fiskars border punch on some more glitter card and am so glad it was sunny today so you can see all the different glitters.

I added some Glamour dust to parts of the image, a sentiment from Craftwork Cards and some 3d cardstock stickers from a Forever Friends sheet.

If you don’t take part in the challenges on Facebook you are missing out on some lovely free images so I hope you will pop over there and join in the fun.

Card Size – 6” Square
