Birthday Wishes

Over at Come and Get It this week we are to do an adult birthday, I made this card using The Open Sea Set from Stampin Up. I used Pool Party, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake for the card. The water and sky background was done using a wax paper technique which was really easy and fun to do. You can find a video here on Karen Phillips blog. She is another demo who made the video after me asking her how to do the technique. I stamped the ship onto the background then colored in the sales with Crumb Cake. The Crumb Cake side piece was stamped using the ships log and then the compass and the anchor from the set, I also stamped the anchor on a separate piece and fussy cut it out and used Pool Party twine to finish that section of the card, the last thing was the greeting which came from another set, which was stamped in Crumb Cake and cut with the small oval punch and then I added and extra couple of ovals to make the border of it and then added 3 silver brads. That's it. Thanks for looking

I will also enter this into the following challenges.
