Platypus Creek Digitals - #15 Lets Celebrate Birthday


Happy Monday everyone!

You may have remembered in yesterdays post I was using the gorgeous Damask Paper from the Robin's Nest on a Scrap Layout and I said that I would be back today to share a card I made using the leftovers.

Well here it is!  My card is for this fortnight's new Challenge over at Platypus Creek Digitals which is #15 - Lets Celebrate Birthday!  This challenge couldn't have come at a better time for me as September is Birthday Month for most of my family and quite a few of my friends as well as my own birthday!



So once again I have teamed this paper with red. I love Red, White and Black Together!  The Birdcage on a Branch Digi is from Platypus Creek Digitals, I have simply printed and cut this out with my spellbinder circle die, layered over the Black and White Damask Paper from the Robin's Nest and framed it with a SVG Cutting File Frame Element.  The two birds and flowers are punched and I have randomly placed some Red Dew Drops also from the Robin's Nest around the Frame.  The Birthday Wishes Sentiment is from The Unity Stamp Co.

For more great birthday inspiration showcasing the wonderful design at Platypus Creek Digitals be sure to pop over to the blog and I do hope you will join the fun and play along too!

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Pile it On - #37 Patterned Paper 
Drunken Stampers - #96 The Birds
Charisma Cardz Challenge - #35 Seeing Double
The Perfect Sentiment - PSC48 All Creatures Great and Small
Do You Stack Up Challenge Blog - #88 Birthdays
