Neat & Tangled's Birthday | Design Team Reunion

Hi everyone! Neat & Tangled is turning FIVE in August and to celebrate they are having a "design team reunion" and inviting back some past design team members to do a guest spot during this month. I was a DT member in 2016 and I still remember how happy and excited I was to join the team!

Thanks so much Danielle for having me for this celebration and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are such a kind and beautiful woman (inside and out). I’m proud to be part of the N&T family and I’m honored to guest for you today! Good luck for the next years of this fabulous crafty adventure!

For this event, I created this card:

I used the pirate set called Yo Ho Ho. I love all characters in this set and I thought the flag would be perfect for a birthday sentiment. I masked the pirate skull on the flag and I then stamped the Happy Birthday text that I found in the Beach Day set. I colored the pirate and cut him out with scissors. I added jeans texture to the pants using a piece of fabric. I sponged the front panel of a top-folded card base with yellow Distress ink using a blending tool. I adhered the image with foam pads to the card base as well as a sandy hill that I die cut from Kraft cardstock. I glued tiny stars and sequins here and there for a festive look. To finish off my card, I added Wink of Stella clear shimmer over the rainbow sweater.

Be sure to check the Neat and Tangled blog for more inspiration every day!

Thanks for visiting my blog today and see you soon…
