:: Birthday Sundaes Challenge #32: Black/White/Purple/Green ::


Who loves a colour challenge?  I know I do!

For this week's card, I used Hero Arts 'Hydrangea' wooden rubber stamp and coloured the image in with copics.  The birthday sentiment is from Stampendous.  To create the banner, I simply stamped the sentiment onto white card stock, cut the sentiment lengthwise.  Using my scoreboard, I scored 1cm from the either side of the sentiment and then a second score line another 0.5cm from the first score line.  At that point, you fold each scoreline so that it turns into a banner shape.  Cut a triangle out of each end and VOILA you have a banner! 

This week we are joined by Birthday Sundaes Guest designer, Tiffany!  Stop by her blog, 'Breakfast @ Tiffany's' to see her black/white/purple/green card creation!  It would be lovely to see your black/white/green/purple creations so why not create a project!  Just make sure that you include a birthday sentiment and only enter your card into a maximum of 6 challenges (including Birthday Sundaes)!

Thanks for dropping by!
