Your Birthday is Big News! - FabFriday 53

It's the trifecta of Fridays here today! One, it's Friday (yay); Two, it's Halloween! (woohoo); and Three, I'm playing along with FabFriday! lol

Here's the awesome sketch I had to work with:

And here's the sweet birthday card I created with it!

Your Birthday is Big News! - FabFriday 53

I used the sketch and this fun pattern paper from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper for my starting point. Next I chose fun colors to go with the Old Olive and ended up choosing Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise. I love the three of them together!

And I pulled out this fun, fun, fun stamp from the Big News stamp set, it's so perfect to color with Stampin' Markers!

For the next element of the sketch I used a shooting star stamp from the Be the Star stamp set and inked up all the stars individually, again using Stampin' Markers. I stamped it twice and rotated the pattern of stars to fulfill the sketch element.

At the last minute I decided to add two Rich Razzleberry Candy Dots. The jury is still out on whether I think that is the perfect finishing touch. I actually wanted to add a bit of shimmer to the stars but seeing that the card is appropriate for a pre-teen boy, I thought adding shimmer might be a poor choice :)

I hope you have enjoyed today's card and that you have a safe and not-so-spooky Halloween!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
