Happy Birthday...Challenge at WhoopsiDaisy

Hi everyone!

Ready for a new challenge? At WhoopsiDaisy we want to celebrate birthdays. This is a wide theme. You can make just about anything. Just slap on a birthday sentiment and there you go. Easy peasy or what? So hop on over and join us. We just can`t wait to see what you can come up with.

This time i have made a card using one of my fav colours though i don`t use it too much. I just looove most shades of blues. This one is more turqoise/minty coloured. I just love the paper and the colour combo on it. I was out of turqoise cardstock but if you don`t have the right colour you can allways make it yourself. For the matting behind the image i used the same kind of printing paper that i use for my stamps and i just used my ProMarker to colour around the edges that were going to show around the edge of the image. And voila... you have a "cardstock" in the exact colour you want. The paper i`m using for printing digi-images is called Colour Copy and the weight is 200 g/m2. I buy it at Staples It is perfect to use for matting too so i save a lot of money not using basill as matting. It is thicker than ordinary printer paper and thinner than basill. I imagine for those of you that have die-cutting systems this must be the perfect paper to cut out embellishments. there are 250 sheets pr unit and i don`t remember exactly but i believe i payed about 150 norwegian kroners for it. (about $25 or £18 or probabely less in the US and UK since the Norwegian taxes is ridiculous) So you can do the math... lot of money to save.

I used some glossy accent on the bubles to make it look like water.
