Just For Fun March Challenge

It is the beginning of a new month and with the arrival of March there is a new challenge on the Just For Fun Blog.  The theme for March is “Birthday”.  

 Just for Fun’s Birthday Background was used to create this card.  Three different colors of Memento ink were added directly to the stamp and the background was stamped two times.  One was layered on purple and added to the card front.

The second layer was cut into strips and three strips were cut into candle flames on one end.  After adding additional ink to the flames, these were layered on purple and popped up on top of the first background.

Here is a quick hint – I actually used white cardstock for all the layers.  I simply added ink to the edges for the purple layers.  This is a great way to have perfect color coordinating layers.

We always need birthday cards so this is an easy challenge to enter.  Head over to the JFF blog for the challenge details and more inspiration from my fellow designers.
