SISC #15 Inspiration Photo for a Birthday Card

Hello out there! It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge with the Groovy Gurlz! I’ve got an inspiration pic to share with you.

SISC15Bday

The mission is to chose one of the color combos on these fabulous cakes and make a birthday card! I love the colors on the cake on the right, so that’s what I used.

Beachy-Keen-1

So let me be straight with you. This card doesn’t look finished to me. I think I need to add some Stickles to the circles (in silver). It just needs a bit ‘o glam. But, it’s late and I am exhausted… so I will have to play around with it at a later time. I do however, love how Beach Maddie came out!

Beachy-Keen-2

She’s rockin’ a bit of a tan. And her hair has been kissed by the sun. Not your tyical birthday card, I know…but we like to groove a little differently here right? Plus, when I thought of this senti, I knew I had a winner!

Beachy-Keen-3

“Hope your Birthday is Beachy-Keen!” Cute right? Thanks! So other then the lack of glitz, I thing the card is super cute. And it’s just a teeny taste of what’s to come!!! (…hint)

So go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz projects now! You are sure to love ‘em all! And then, it’s your turn to play along! Don’t ya wanna win some free digis??? Join the insanity!!!

This is beautiful! Love the layout and the way you colored Maddie!

Hey Alison, thank you so much for always stopping by my blog to show me so love. I love your card. I almost did the same thing with the circles but less is more with a masculine card.
Beth said…
I love this!! You did an amazing job toning in her skin - geez, Girl!! Beautiful work! I think it looks fab - I always think my cards don't look finished and then I crush them into "overdone"... lol Great card!!

Too cute! I like how you carried out the polka dot theme in addition to the color scheme. I think it looks finished, but you do love your sparkle ;o)
