Centre stage wording

That's the challenge over at AAA card challenge and that gave me the idea for a birthday card for one of my grandchildren using birthday word power..., can't believe my gorgeous Grandson is 14yrs old!!

After stamping the different words and heat embossing in silver, I've simply layered the black card with silver card to enhance the silver embossing and added a red smile diecut which was stamped with red ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give the ink staying power

Ice cream

Namely the old fashioned Neapolitan ice cream and that's the challenge this week at Less is More, sooooo I thought I'd try to do a 70's theme using a bit of feather and these super ice cream colours...

I've used a stencil of trailing leaves and flowers and used a selection of colours in Sahara sand pumice stone for the chocolates shades and frosty pink and coral berry for the strawberry ice cream shades...For the bird I stamped him on cream card in Saharan sand - fussy cut him and added some dusky pink feathers to his tail for a vintages/70's look.  Topped off with a simple gold embossed phrase on a strip of Vellum that I thought went well with the theme and a few 70's sequins that are again now fashionable in the card world and on clothes.  What goes round comes round so the saying goes.....

Some family time on holiday last week on the Yorkshire Coast (some beautiful stretches of beach there were too) and had to show my youngest enjoying his ice cream in the sunshine we were lucky enough to have!
