Colour Me 53

All my favourites seem to coming up in colour challenges this week. At Colour Me, it's Perfect Plum.
Such a deliciously moody photograph! But that's not the direction this card went in. This card went to masculine-suitable birthday instead. Clean, simple, no frills. What I really wanted to play with out of my box of tricks was word dies because I haven't used them enough. I'm pretty happy with the stack of 'Happy' and the shadow effect of the black at the back in this card. I toyed with adding some black/plum enamel dots but decided that in this case, less was more.

Update: Surprised but thrilled that this card was picked as an Honourable Mention at Colour Me.

Card: Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Black
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Make a Wish, Altenew Label Love
Ink: Perfect Plum, Black
Other: Dimensionals, Die-namics Happy Birthday die


  1. Jan this card is beautiful. The balloons add really nice texture and combined with the simple and smooth 'happy' make your card gorgeous!

  2. What a sweet happy birthday card, Jan! The "happy" popped up adds such a nice touch! Thanks for joining us at Colour Me this week! We hope to see you back again real soon! ♥
