Happy Birthday!

You will know this layout, if you are in Australia and watch TEN TV channel. They use colour blocking in creative way. This layout comes when they announce the next program or schedule for the evening. I did modify it. I love love the animation and the bright and bold colours of blue and yellow with black. I haven't worked out how to incorporate the animation into the card. Maybe an interactive card is the way to go but for now, inspired by TV, I made a birthday card.

Colour Blocking

I told you, it is bright and bold. But I love it. I am a bright girl. Find it hard to do muted colours. I love that I think of sketches/layouts for cards when I see TV, catalogues, billboards, TV ads, clothes etc. My husband and kids thinks I am crazy lol! Anyway, here is the supply list

Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black from SU, Golden Harvest from PTI
Stamp sets: Wonderful Words Additions,Modern Basics from PTI, Little Critters from CAS
Inks: Stazon Black Ink
Accessories: Circle punch, Fine tip black pen, MFT alpha dies.

Thanks for stopping by!
