Happy Age Awareness CMCC#40 HSS#195

It wasn't hard to get motivated to make another card using Regarding Dahlias. The stamps were still out on my work table, and I just grabbed some Whisper White and a different retired DSP, Everyday Enchantment, to make version 2. Colour Me set a monochromatic colour challenge, Calypso Coral, same as my last card. The sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments.

The elaborate 'happy' and 'birthday' sentiments from Age Awareness are big favourites of mine, Especially the 'filled-in' parts, which seem rather similar to the shaded sections on the dahlia. The flag has been cut using the Banner Framelits, but they are longer than intended. You do that by using strips a little narrower than the framelit and threading it through so only the flag end is cut.

What you think of the sentiment? Happy Age Awareness Day may not be seen as amusing by some people, do you think it is okay?

  1. I love how the styles of the stamps you chose complement each other! Brilliant! And I think "age awareness" is cute - I mean, more birthdays are good, ultimately, right? Great looking card! Thanks for playing the sketch challenge at HSS! ~ Erika
