Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Sweet Taffy DSP Birthday Card


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop.

I suddenly realised that it is halfway through April and that I have a tonne of Designer Series Paper that I haven't used yet. Sweet Taffy uses three of our challenge colours so I thought I would put it to good use on a card.

The layout was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week:

I white heat embossed part of the Happy Happy Happy Birthday stamp from Amazing Birthday onto a scrap piece of Rose Red banner (which I happily found in my Rose Red card stock stash - don't you love it when that happens...it was already cut to the perfect banner shape).

To follow the blog hop, just click the arrows below.

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by my blog and would like to support my creative business, all the supplies may be found by clicking through the links below which will take you to my store.
