AAA 4th BIrthday Bash

AAA Card Challenge is celebrating its 4th Birthday. Congratulations! This challenge has gone from strength to strength and I remember playing with them right back in their first year, even if I've not played much lately. They've got lots happening over there - not just the challenge but lots of extra things too, so go over and have a look.

For this challenge, I used a technique I've not used in a while. I smooshed the background using watery ink and a piece of acetate. I was looking for a fireworks kind of effect. For this, I tried out two of the new colours in the Stampin' Up family of colours: Poppy Parade and Mango Melody. Both are part of the revamped Brights range of colours. I think I'm going to like them a lot!

This is a simple card. Once the background was done I added in the stamps from the retired Saleabration set, Amazing You. The Celebrate You die is now available from the new annual catalogue. I've cut it in copper foil and there are a couple of Poppy Parade layers underneath to give it some depth.

The sentiment seemed to suit the 4th Birthday Challenge - Happy Birthday AAA. Here's to many more!
