MFT Color Challenge 170 & Outside the Box Birthday Bonanza

Today's card combines two My Favorite Things challenges! For the color challenge I used the Birdie Brown Festive Old Friends stamp set, and for the box card I used my favorite, Level Up dies. The cake is from a stamp set by Ellen Hutson called, surprisingly, Cake, LOL and the sentiment-You're Not a Year Older. 2020 Didn't Count- is from the MFT Festive Old Friends set. Perfect, isn't it!

Box card folds flat for mailing.

MFT Camp Create, Day 4 Background Bonanza

Disclaimer: Backgrounds are the hardest for me!

I feel like I wussed out on this one, using a stencil. I'll keep playing and see if I can come up with something more "bonanza" than this. Sigh. Regardless, here is my (first attempt) for Day 4. 

Background stencil by Tim Holtz, ink color Orange Fizz (retired from My Favorite Things). Mountain  (Aloha) and palms (Good Day) by Ellen Hutson. Hut from Tiki Party (retried from My Favorite Things) and sentiment also from Tiki Party, pieced together. 

MFT Camp Create, Day 3 Emboss Resist

Today's assignment is Emboss Resist. I love this technique and used it for the water on today's card. The stamp is a background stamp from My Favorite Things, Scallop Stripe, and the ink color is Blue Breeze. Sentiment by Ellen Hutson from the Good Day stamp set.
Adorable images from the MFT You Keep Me Afloat stamp set. 
White embossing powder is perfect if you want a quiet background.

MFT Camp Create, Day 2 Wonderful Watercolor

For my watercolor image I chose this one from Altenew Pen Sketched Flowers, using my favorite water color medium, Distress Inks. Sentiment by Ellen Hutson, Pure Magic stamp set. I liked it better before I added the blue background. Oh well.
