Runway Inspired Challenge #91 + Seize the Birthday + Simon Says

After all the buttons & bling in yesterday's post, I went in a completely different direction for this bold, graphic birthday card.


I think it is pretty obvious how Runway Inspired Challenge #91 influenced the design.

A Tim Holtz border die is cut in black, lime and aqua cardstock to create a panel echoing the design on the model's top. 

This panel is popped up on a black card base, making it very hard to photograph straight on. These side angles give a much better view of the dimension.

The sentiment is created with MFT High-Rise Alphabet and Number Die-namics cut from white, lime and aqua cardstock and stacked together.

I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday in the Anything Goes category, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog challenge to Make It Colorful and Virginia's View Challenge #18 Geometric Patterns.
