I Finally Did It! v.2

For my second card for Papertrey Ink‘s July Blog Hop, I stuck with the same ‘cherries in aqua bowl’ color scheme, but this time omitting scarlet jewel from the palette.

I wanted to try a variation using the same overlapping triangular focal point as my first card, so I stamped a background using numerous birthday message stamps from a couple different sets. To keep from concealing all my time and effort stamping all that (*phew!*), I reduced the size of the triangles (as well as the number by giving scarlet jewel the axe). Had I considered it better before hand, I would have either stamped some kind of scroll-like filler under the ‘birthday’ script or heat embossed the ‘birthday’ sentiment because I’m not completely happy with the gap of space there. The background is almost too overwhelming for the message. But since I didn’t really notice the gap before I adhered all the triangles onto the card front with foam dots, I couldn’t (comfortably and without anxiety) stamp below the birthday after that. But in my mind, I’m thinking it would look better that way. Or at least embossed.
