Muse 133 - Happy Birthday


This is my card for this week's Muse Challenge, where Joan has given us this inspiration:




I focused on Joan's
-focus on related sentiments
-tilted panel (I tilted a few more)
-colour scheme (black, white, yellow plus some others)

It's got quite a different feel to Joan's, but it's also got a different purpose - I wanted to capture the crazy fun of a birthday!

I'm also linking this up to the Paper Smooches call for October's Guest Designer. I took advantage of the consistency of size and font of sentiments from different sets to create a multi-messaged birthday card.

I used
-Birthday Bash (main sentiment)
-Knick Knacks ('you rock', 'aged beautifully')
-Wake Up ('have a nice day', 'this calls for a toast')
-Metropolis ('let's celebrate', tiny stars)
-Perpetual Bliss ('let the good times roll')
-Bold Buzzwords (larger stars)

Fabulous mix of sentiments and I like the "zaniness" of tilting the sentiments at different angles. The stars in the background showcase the sentiments beautifully !!!

Sweet! [I know there's more to say, but my brain has been fractured by thoughts of layers and embellishments, & stuff...=|
