Hey y'all! I had a beachy card yesterday, and today it's a desert theme with a cactus...
I got Birthday Fiesta because I love Lloyd the Llama (I assume he is a llama and not an alpaca?) and then I only used the stamp set once, which is a crime because it's SO cute. So today the cactus got to come out and play, along with the coordinating paper. This was fun to make.
I started with the Paper Players sketch:
I did move my sentiment up to the smallest panel but otherwise stayed true to the sketch.
Add in the Retro Rubber challenge:
I did the top row, with patterned paper, green, and heat embossing, which gave me a great excuse to try out the new sparkly embossing powder. I got both black and white, and tried them both; the black was actually easier to read but I felt like if I did the sentiment in black then I'd have to add black mats to the card and I just didn't wanna, so I went with the white. Anyway, Birthday Fiesta is at least two years old.
Finally, here's the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge:
I think that might be the only cactus stamp I own, but I could be mistaken. As my husband would tell you, my stamp collection is quite vast :p
Fiesta like there's no manana, peeps! Today is Harry Potter's birthday, if you need an excuse to celebrate.
