Birthday Denim


The challenge at CR84FN is to use this colour palette:


I do have some jeans and pocket stamps, but I also had this lovely sheet of denim paper, and found a set of alphabet brads.  Because there was only one of each letter, I could only do "birthday" so I decided to make it like a label, and added some stitching.  The "happy" was made with a Sizzix Doodle with Dazzle alphabet, but I cut all the stars off the bottom of the letters.

I couldn't get a decent photo showing the relief on all the brads at once, so I took photos from different angles to show the detail.


Here's a close-up of the detail.
