Happy Birthday

There's a great challenge on now over at Splitcoast called the Love Fest and I'm playing along with the first challenge. I'm hoping to have time to play along with more challenges over the next 8 days but this is a good start.


The first challenge, LOVEFEST2013A is L.O.V.E....to incorporate those four letters into a project. Here's my love:
L - leaves
O - orange button and card stock
V - vanilla flower
E - embossing on the flag

I started with a card base of Whip Cream then added a layer of Orange Fizz. The main panel is Kraft card stock and this clean and simple layout is CTS15. As you can see I've stuck exactly to the sketch. I used the Mix and Match Banners Die-namics to cut out the Berrylicious flag, then I added texture to it thanks to an embossing folder. I stitched the flag in place (and yes, my stitching line isn't quite level, but I did it after two glasses of wine. Good thing it was a short line!) then stamped the sentiment from Pure Innocence All Occasion Sentiments using Black Licorice Premium Dye Ink.

I used the Upsy Daisy Die-namics to cut out the Whip Cream flower and Sour Apple leaves, then I topped it with an Orange Fizz button. I adhered the flower with foam tape for a little dimension then added a scattering of rhinestones for just a little bling.

Have fun if you decide to play along with the Love Fest challenges. There are fabulous prizes to be won!

Here are the supplies I used:
