Stampin’ Up! Alternate Monday “Happy Birthday Gorgeous”

Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

More Details:

  • Die cut the leaves with the matching framlits
  • Add a loop of Mini Gold Sequins to the left of the sentiment
  • Tie a Berry Burst bow and attach it to the left side of the sentiment
  • Adhere the leaves at the stem and place three of them in a cluster to the left of the oval sentiment by the Berry Burst bow
  • Finish it off with a Enamel Shaped Heart  tucked under the sentiment

Here is another card:

This card is put together just like the one above, I used different paper and a different shape for the sentiment, this continues changing it up  with the alternate look.
