Hooray, It's Your Birthday!

I put together this box from Neat and Tangled and some kids from Mama Elephant jumped in.  All of the sudden W+9 stars and confetti sprang out, PTI banners dropped down, and we had a PARTY! 
!!SURPRISE!!

I cut a channel down the back of the box die to create a slider. 

Supplies Used:
Dies:  Neat and Tangled Box die, PTI Text Block: You Did It, PTI Wonderful Words: Birthday
Ink: Distress Ink Barn Door, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versa Mark
Paper: MME My Girl, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy, Paper Studios card base 
Stamps:  Mama Elephant In My Heart, W+9 A Pocketful, Paper Smooches Party Posse
Other: Zing white embossing powder, Copics, Scotch foam tape

I wanted to join in on some challenges this week.  Virginia's View has a challenge going on this month that is all about creating a focal point.  With a little masking, I heat embossed the stars stamp from W+9 A Pocketful many times in a semicircle around where I knew the box was going to sit.  That helped create a direction towards my focal point - the box.  I then used the resist technique, which is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: Totally Resistible, to emphasize the white embossing.  I used the colors from Marker Pop's current color challenge for the papers, ink, and Copic colors.  I really love the combination!

  16. Kara!! First, thank you so so much for coming by my blog and leaving such lovely comments. You are a sweetheart, and I love to hear form you. I am now on 3 design teams, and crazy busy, so I am not able to be as diligent about roaming around my favorite friends' blogs and leaving love. Second, I don't even know what words to use to tell you how much I love this card! Your coloring is AMAZING but this wonderful little party put together is so clever, creative and FUN! It looks so 3D and as if that box is floating in thin air! Just fantastic Kara. Thanks for sharing this gem!!!!
