MDSM16: Coloring Tool Birthday Card

This week's card was inspired by two things.  The first (and I think most important) is that this week I will be celebrating my birthday!  So, with that in mind I decided to make a birthday card.

The second inspiration was the MDS Monday sketch challenge (#16).  This is a simple card sketch, but they also challenge you to use the Coloring Tool in MDS.

I turned the sketch to make the card a portrait instead of a landscape design.  The colors for the main image were pulled directly from the fun polka dot DSP.  I like the way the polka dots go with the "Party" circles.

Since the main image suggests a party, the inside is the invitation.  I left a space to fill in information for the party.  I used the Coloring Tool again to color the stamps and continue the color theme on the inside.  I love the bright happy colors.  Perfect for a Happy Birthday celebration!

Supplies: MDS, Sweet Details DSP, Cake & Ice Cream Stamp Brush Set, Scallop Edge Punch
(I also love how few supplies are needed to make this card.  Easy and simple for planning a party!)

Check back on May 31st to see the updated link to the new catalog.  Want to see the real thing?  Let me know and I will send you a catalog of your very own.
