Sheetload of Cards: Happy Birthday Wordsearch

I hope you've had a chance to download the October ezine already. Lots of great inspiration, don'tcha think? Well, all of the Sheetload ezines always have great ideas.

For this sample, I used the Kids Birthday Wordsearch stamp (P1109). It took me awhile to figure out how to use this stamp because it was so large. Can you guess who's style I adapted to this card? Any guesses??? I took inspiration from Silke Ledlow. She always has a way to make simplicity look fabulous and I've been wanting to case her style of stamping for awhile now. Not sure if you can tell, but a second white layer of cardstock is popped up with dimensionals. I used some paper from the Sassafrass Lass Sunshine Lollipop collection for some added color to the background. The main image was stamped using Palette Burnt Umber ink. At first, I was going to just circle the word Happy Birthday then I got carried away and found all of the words - LOL! I finished it off with some silver metallic brads on the upper left hand corner and adorned with a wide hot pink grossgrain ribbon with some prima flowers and string.

Well, I hope you've had a chance to take at all of the wonderful creations in this month's ezine and have taken advantage of the special "free shipping" offer (code available in October ezine) from DRS Designs.

Hope all is well! Till next time...more Sheetload cards and projects to show yah! Thanks for stopping by!!!
