Happy Birthday

Today, half of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew is sharing projects using the July release, Bold Celebrations. I used quite a few stamps from this set including the two largest sentiments, the outline flag, the tiny chevrons, polka dots and string with clips. The outline leaves span across the entire banner and it's from Thoughts and Smiles.

This might come as a shocker but I don't make a lot of birthday-specific cards. Often I will send cards to friends for their birthday with a non-birthday sentiment on it. However, this set totally changes the game for me because there are so many possibilities with the way you can piece together all the different images and sentiments!

If you'd like to purchase any of the sets I used, just click on the graphics. Avocado Arts would love to see you using their stamps! Remember, there's a publication incentive, too. ;) Don't forget to check out the following posts for more inspiration using Bold Celebrations.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay cool in the summer heat!

Love how that angled banner piece creates a curve... You managed to include so much colour and pattern on an otherwise CAS card.
Also, like your new summery ID photo!
