Carousel Birthday Collage Card #GDP085

Today I tried something a little different and out of my comfort zone. I had seen lots of people use the Carousel Birthday stamp set to create a collage which is something I never thought to do with this set. I have paired this with the Global Design Project Challenge 085 - Colour which was to choose 3 of the retiring 2015-2017 In Colors. I chose Tip Top Taupe Cucumber Crush and Delightful Dijon, I will miss these colours but not sure I have used them as a combo, they are really quite masculine together. I used the stamping off technique to create more interest to these 3 colours and added a 2015-2017 In Colour Doilies to ground the sentiment which I stamped on vellum. To finish the card off I placed it on a Tip Top Taupe card base and added a sprinkling of Metallic Enamel Shapes.

To order any of the products used to make this card you will have to be quick as the items on the Retirement List are selling out fast, simply go to my SHOP NOW button above to go to my Online Store or contact me to place an order.  Don' forget to use this month's Hostess Code.

I can also show you how to make my projects at a party with you and your friends. Just contact me to organise a time to enjoy the amazing benefits our hostesses can earn and spend on anything in our catalogues including our Occasions Catalogue.

Thanks for Stopping by
