Big Bold Birthday

The second card at the Whitminster Class was created using "Big Bold Birthday" which I have been using quite a lot recently.  Again, this is a Two-Step Stampin' set that is on offer with a fantastic 20% off its usual selling price making it only £19.16 until the end of August, and with 13 stamps in this set the possibilities are endless!

The three main colours we used for this card will all sadly be retiring at the end of September, Brocade Blue, Close to Cocoa and Ruby Red, but of course we will be getting some lovely new colours to play with so shouldn't be too sad about it!

We used the "So Swirly" jumbo wheel on the Close to Cocoa layer, inked with VersaMark ink to create a soft subtle background.  We also attached a couple of Ruby Red Brads to this layer.  The "Make a Wish" greeting is also from "Big Bold Birthday".  The DSP is from the Hostess 6x6" Paper Pad.  Quite a few layers on this card but I was pleased with the finished result and hope that everyone enjoyed creating it too.
