A Modern Basics Happy Birthday

A quickie post tonight! I've had this card loaded for a while, but just haven't gotten around to posting it. I made this shortly after I got Modern Basics. I was playing around, "getting to know" it, and trying to do a fairly clean and simple card. It still ended up with layers, but what can I say... I gotta be me! LOL! I just find it very hard to do a one layer card, so maybe I should just quit trying! :)


I stamped the pattern and colored in the solid blocks with Copics. I cut out the strip, and the sentiment, which is popped up on the card base. I added some Fancy Flourishes in Fresh Snow and a bit of bling to finish it off. 



By the way, while you're here, you might notice that I recently added the Networked Blogs widgit over there in the right sidebar! I'm still figuring out how Networked Blogs works, but I know I LOVE it for the blogs that I follow! I would love it if you would sign up follow me. :)

And as always, thanks for looking!

Really like this card. I loved Modern Basics when I saw it, but honestly haven't really figured out what to do with it. Will be pinning this card as an idea to copy. Love that orange and Hawaiian shores combo again.

Really like this card. Nice and bright. Like how the orange really pops with the turquoise. I am a follower of your blog just don't know if it is through the Network.
