The Card Concept Challenge 6 - Birthday Card


Time for Card Concept Challenge #6 - Create a Birthday Card!



I used the colours from the inspiration photo, but simplified them by turning all the different shapes into circles. Circles are fun and a staple of graphic style. They're great for birthday cards - you can use them as balloons, or even just on their own, as in this card, they feel bubbly and fun!

Our Rules
  1. Use the Challenge to create a card.
  2. Choose one of the design team "styles" to create your card. Click HERE for the different styles summary.
  3. Explain in your post which style you used.
  4. Link up your blog post here, not your whole blog.
  5. Comment on the card ahead of you and behind you in the linky. Everyone loves comments!

This challenge will end on Monday, March 31 at 3pm EDT.

I love the shading on the circles. It makes we want to reach out and touch them.

I instantly saw 'balloons' and only after looking closely, realized they were circles (apparently I 'perceived' the strings..). Magical...simply magical...

I have been looking at this in our gallery and all along thought they were balloons! Those circles are so graphic...there is a reason you represent the Clean and Graphic style...such a good interpretation of the birthday theme.

This is such a fun card, Ardyth, and graphic perfection! What is amazing to me is that your overlapping colors do not look muddy. Awesome card!
