Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Birthday Bash


We have an awesome new sponsor, Top Dog Dies, for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Birthday Bash!  The designers received some fabulous Tog Dog Dies to work with for this challenge...such a quality product!  The LEAD of this challenge will receive some Top Dog Dies of their choice.

I just adore this Madison Doily Die which I used on my card.  It is such a delicate design, and I love that you can use it to make a doily in any colour to suit your project!

Since I don't have any aqua paper, I had to sub in a light blue (note to self:  get some aqua paper!!).  I embossed the background with chevrons to somewhat mimic the pattern on the paper balls, used the rest of the colours from the photo, and added the word "joy" because birthday bashes are joyful occasions :)

You've worked magic withe the doily, showcasing it beautifully with the other complementary details. You know, however, it's those butterflies that have me swooning! As for using "Joy" as your sentiment: perfect and brilliant! Yes, another card to love!
