Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 200

Hi everybody and welcome to not only our 200th challenge but its also our 4th birthday at Addicted to Stamps and More!! Woo hoo!! Congratulations to our leader Kylie who created this challenge and keeps it ticking along beautifully!

As its our birthday, we have a birthday inspiration photo for this weeks challenge. Not only will you help us celebrate but you will be able to build up your birthday card stash too!!

And there are extra prizes too this week!!! We not only have a $30 gift certificate from Happy Little Stampers, we also have a $25 gift certificate from Paper Smooches AND 3 digital images from QKR Stampede Stamps. Talk about exciting!!

I love all the colours in the inspiration photo this week so decided to make them the focus of my design:

I sat down with my Gansai Tambi water colour paints and had a blast painting rainbow stripes on a piece of water colour CS. Once it was dry, I used a 'happy' die from Whimsy Stamps three times and also cut three more from white CS. I glued the white and rainbow die-cuts together (for a bit of stability) and then to the card front. I covered all the die-cuts with lots of Glossy Accents and stamped the sentiment (from Whimsy Stamps 'Happy Everything') in black. There's so much colour going on I didn't think it needed any sequins, which is unusual for me!!

I'm going to link this to the Virginia's View Challenge # 22 where the theme is:

Happy birthday to all my ATSM team mates and to see their gorgeous birthday cards, pop over to Addicted to Stamps and More. You have until next Wednesday July 6th to link your projects and I can't wait them all in the Gallery.

Take care
