Happy Birthday card with bright colours

Hello, and welcome, Anita from the Design Team here today to show you a birthday card I've made with our challenge colours.

Here is a step by step how I made this card:

White cardstock coloured with turquoise, pink and purple Distress Ink

A stencil and pink Distress Ink

Another stencil and turquoise and Purple Distress Ink

Some water spritz and gently push a Kitchen roll over it to pull of some colour.

I coloured the houses and the snowman with Distress Ink, Distress Marker and Dylusions Ink Sprays and a waterbrush

I've used Distress Spray Stain in silver to achieve some sleet - just what we have in Bergen/Norway the whole winter, he he he :-)

I cut them out and use a Faber Castell Big brush pen around the edges. I've used Distress Ink Black soot around the edges of the card

I embossed Happy Birthday with black glitter and glued some tread on the "sign" for it to hang on the snowman

I stamped Congratulations on the background with pink Archival ink. And I stamped some stars above.

Stamps I've used on this card is:
- Snowman from the set Frosty Friends
- Houses from the set Textured Houses
- Stars from the set Textured Houses
- Congratulations from the set Beautiful words
- Happy Birthday from the set Beautiful Words

That's all for now my dear friends. I will be back in the beginning of December. Stay tuned, there will be more to come.
Remember to join the Challenge, and remember to make a birthday card for Bibi, the owner of Rubber Dance.

Hugs, Anita
