Creative Confetti: Birthday Wishes!


Hello friends! It's Tuesday and that means it's time for a brand new Creative Confetti challenge! Can you believe we're easing into the middle of October already? I love October for a few reasons but my favorite reason is that it's my birthday month! My birthday was Oct.11 and my husband and I headed to one of my favorite places in Alaska - Seward. It's a wonderful little town and I love escaping to there every year.

So what does this have to do with Creative Confetti you ask? Well, let's get a birthday card made this week! I always seem low on birthday cards in my stash so now is the perfect time to get one or two added to the pile.

HOW TO PLAY: Create a birthday card, it's that easy!

On to my creation....

Since I have a fall birthday, I decided to use an autumn-themed image on my card. I went with a pumpkin filled with flowers, an image found in the Season's Seatings digital set, which you can find HERE.

I brought my copics and image with me on our trip so I could color at the end of the evening. Thankfully, I usually print out 2-3 copies of the same image so I can have several on hand and that turned out to be a good thing. The dreaded marker blob happened as I was getting to the end of my coloring on the first image I started. Needless to say, my husband heard me utter some colorful words and then I grabbed the backup image I had brought with me.

Does the layout look familiar? I used the layout from Julie's Creative Confetti Sketch on Sept.29th, which you can still play along with! 

I was going to put my sentiment on the front but after hemming and hawing about it for a while I finally decided to leave a sentiment off the front and I added it to the inside of the card instead. The birthday sentiments I used can be found in the clear set Party Time. This set is retiring but you can currently still grab one HERE at a discounted price!
