Brick Wall Birthday Card

Yesterday I finally had a bit of time to craft and so I have a card to share today! It was more fiddly than usual but I do like how it turned out. The little banners cut out the letters and I thought it looked better when I inserted them again in another color rather than leave them empty.

Stamps: None!!!
Dies: Poppystamps
Other: Brick stencil (TCW)

Challenges (as always, click on the links to be dazzled by what the DT created and by the gallery and to find out the rules on how to play along):

and since the banners are all cut from snippets I am hopping over to

  11. How cool is that brick wall!! LOVE it!! Such a perfect take on the Time Out Challenge!! and such a bright and fun addition to the gallery at Seize The Birthday too!! thanks a bunch for playing with us.


  12. This is such a cool interpretation of your inspiration photo. I can just bet inlaying the tiny letters back into the banners was indeed fiddly. You did it superbly though. Love the banners atop that wonderful brick background. It's a wonderful card, Susanne! TFS

  13. Love how you made the banner, Susanne--darling card!

  14. Fabulous birthday banner card! I love how you've mixed up the colours of the flags and inserts - it would do my head in deciding which colours to put where! Thanks for playing along at Seize The Birthday :)
