Time Out Challenge #115 - Birthday Wishes

Hello Thursday Friends!

I am super excited to be a guest designer at Time Out Challenges today.  I was lucky enough to be chosen during the previous challenge and it really is an honor!

This new challenge is sponsored by Birch Press Designs and entails food and drink.  There is also an optional twist of making a one layer card. Here is the inspiration photo:

I used the Birch Press Kessa-Arch layering dies to make the panel on my card.  I cut all three layers from white card stock and colored the bottom two to coordinate with my stamped images.  The stamp and die set I used for my focal point is from Sunny Studio Stamps and is called Tropical Paradise.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I post a new project daily, so feel free to come back any time!



  1. It is great to have you as Guest Designer! Love the card; its a beauty! And all of this all looks so "cool" and welcome with the warm weather we have here...

  2. Wow this card is amazing. I love you used the 3 layers and colour co ordinated them. Such a bright and sunny card! Thank you for being our GD and making such a fabulous card x

  3. This is wonderful, festive, and fabulous, Susie. I love the way you layered the color in the lace, and the way you tucked a couple of sequins behind the die cuts. Such great details. Your coloring is fabulous and the tsamps and dies you chose are so perfect for the inspiration. So glad you are with us as Guest Designer!

  4. Tropically scrumptious, Susie ... fabulous colouring on those party drinks ... and great detailing with the lacey edged 'tablecloth'. Thanks so much for inspiring our players as our Guest Designer at Time Out! Anita :)

  5. What an adorable scene. Looks like a festive party table for a summer soiree. Thanks so much for being our Guest Designer at Time Out.

  6. That's a very interesting die and I love your idea to color-match the bottom layers to your colored-in image. Love the tropical, summery feel of this card! Thanks for being such an inspiring GD at Time Out!

  7. What an absolutely gorgeous tropical scene - The extra touch of the layered border dies as a tablecloth is genius! Thanks so much for sharing such wonderful inspiration with us as our GD at Time Out!


I love hearing from you! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment.
