Curtain Call Reminder: Birthday Bash

This is my second post today.

Just a reminder that there are still a few days left to play along with the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Birthday Bash!  You have until July 10th at 8 a.m. Central time to be inspired and play along with this fun and simple graphic.  There are a number of new cards by the design team over at Curtain Call today!

The design team got to play with Top Dog Dies.  I had ordered before I saw the challenge graphic and I got these sweet birds on a branch.  I've been scratching my head wondering what I could do with the birds based on the graphic.  I finally decided to go with the ultimate "birthday" and then focus on the white with a few colorful circles.

Little Miracle

I hope you are inspired to play along. don't have to use a Top Dog die - but the LEAD of the challenge will win some Top Dog dies!
  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Tiny Tags II
  • Paper: Simon Says Fog and Smoke (and there's actually a layer of Slate behind the bird die cut)
  • Ink: Versamark with white embossing posder
  • Accessories: Top Dog Dies Birds and Nest die, Cherish Doilies and Tag Set (the stitched part is not part of the Top Dog die), Mini Tags die, misc enamel dots and sequins
