A big congrats to Sue, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a wonderful gallery & after much browsing I chose THIS card to case. I kept the colorful spiky elements but made mine a slimline & changed it from Christmas to birthday.
For my card, I die cut the white front w/ a large stitched slimline die then used the new quilted cover piercing die on it. I made a frame for it by using the same stitched die & die cutting it again w/ the next smaller size. On a separate piece of white, I used Copics to color bands of color then placed it behind the quilted piece. I knew I wanted the spiky flowers on some of the circles, so I used a couple of circle punches (for centers) then lined the holes up w/ the center of the flower & die cut them. I also colored them w/ the same makers then added colored gems to these centers for a little sparkle.
The Birthday word was die cut out of some leftover watercolor paper & the shadow layer was cut out of white. I stamped the small Happy above it & added a med blue layer behind the panel.

I love how you used the inspiration card to create this beauty. I can definitely see the influence but you turned it into something so unique. Love all the elements from the quilt piercing to the rainbow colors behind the holes; but, those spiky flowers are my fav. They add such an element of fun and delight. Fabulous design. Awesome card.
Julie, I wish my mind worked like yours. I would have never thought in a million years to place the Mixable Flower Stack flowers over the holes. This is such a fun case of Sue's card and I love how bright and cheerful it is. Such a perfect birthday card.
