Blackboard birthday


I'm combining a couple of new trends on this card.  I've noticed this offset angled layering appearing on cards lately, like the one in this post from Laura Bassen and this one from Amy Kolling for Neat & Tangled's September Release Day 4.

I've double-layered my panel and turned it into a blackboard (the other new trend) for the challenge at Little Tangles:


And I've used the colour scheme from The Paper Players' current challenge:

I've used the Everyday Circles set from Neat & Tangled.  Birthday is stamped in Brilliance Moonlight White, and Happy is stamped in Colorbox Seaglass.  Black sequins from stash.

  7. Wonderful, Shirley! I love cards with interesting angles. I tend to always create with horizontal and vertical (not that there is anything wrong with that), but wonky angling is eye catching and fun. You rocked it :)

    I always look forward to your entries at Little Tangles!
