More Birthday Inspiration...

Since Gold is all the rage, I am seeing Gold and Black parties all over Pinterest.  I couldn't just share just one photo because I got my inspiration from so many places.  Click HERE to see all kinds of gorgeous parties with the Gold and Black theme.

I went for a simple ensemble today.  Easy to recreate but oh so fun to celebrate just one person at a table setting on their birthday.

I used the new set called Good Times to make this CAS card...


I stamped the dot border back to back in Gold Delicata ink.  Then I added in a set of stripes from Background Basics: Super Stripes.  I die cut the word celebrate from the Good Times dies about 5 or 6 times and stacked them up for some dimension.  I attached that to the middle of the border on the card.


To match, I made a fun little party hat in black, adding in a gold adhesive scalloped border and some white tissue paper for the fridge.  I used a sponge to blot on some gold ink and then stamped the dot border again on the top of the hat.  I wanted a simple box that packed some punch, so I used another Gold Adhesive sheet, sticking it down to cardstock and then cutting it out with the Favor it: Cupcake Box.  I love that shiny paper!


I can't wait to see what the other girls have made up for today!  Here is a list of their blogs so stop in and say hi!
