Happy Birthday card

Good Morning!

One more week of school holidays to go and I am loving having Aditi and Siddarth home. It has been a pleasure just hanging out with them and going out for lunches and shopping. So my mojo at the moment is not great. Having great difficulty focusing. This is because of lack of long periods of exclusive my time. So I am sharing a card I made for Papercraft magazine submission call.

I am lately intrigued by subway art and typography. So I wanted to use sentiments from various stamp sets and appropriate images and make a card using subway art.

Cardstock: Stamper Select White and Hawaiian Shore from Papertrey Ink. 
Pattern Paper:Echo Park Dots and Stripes pattern paper.
Stamps: Inside Out Birthday and Cup Cake Collection from Papertrey Ink. Many Birthday Messages and Essential Messages from Hero Arts. Big Greeting from My Favourite Things. Party Time from Verve 
Inks: Archival Jet Black Ink. Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart inks from Papertrey Ink. 
Accessories: Cupcake collection dies from Papertrey Ink.

I loved how this card came together. Looks simple but I love how birthday sentiments from so many different stamp sets coordinated, the different fonts, size of fonts and addition of images bringing colours to the card. I love love this card a lot.One of my favourite.

I am submitting this card for Moxie Fab World Stamp It Birthday Card Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
See you soon

wow, wow, WOW, I absolutely LOVE this card! It is so unique!! I don't recall seeing a card with the sentiment/supporting images taking up the whole space before. Seriously, one of the best cards I've seen. It will join the very few cards that I've pinned.
