Stampin' Up! Australia - Hip Hip Hooray Birthday card


I was looking for ways of using up some of my hoarded DSP when I remembered one of the first sketches I was ever taught as a newbie card maker.

2 strips of DSP equal widths on the base with a square in the middle. EASY...and the best part is that it always looks good!

The Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper coordinates so well and was perfect for my card.

I also thought I would drag out an old set - Hip Hip Hooray - from March 2014 to be exact so I could play along with a challenge site that I have had my eye on for some time....the Retro Rubber Challenge. They are having an 'Anything Goes' challenge this week so it is a good one to start on.

I hope you like my card. If you have been inspired by it 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.
