Surprize Party Guest at Seize the Birthday

Afternoon peeps.
I'm back today with a card and a little bit of news.
To start here is my card, I was very much in festive mood when I made this birthday card.

The reason for creating it was because Nancy of STB asked if I would be their surprise party guest over at Seize the Birthday for the next couple of months! 
It was so out of the blue but of course I said yes, STB is one of my favourite challenges!

This time the theme is -


But as usual so long as it's a birthday card your welcome in the gallery!

I'd seen quite a few black and gold New Year images on Pinterest such as this one, which together with the theme prompted me I to make this OL card. 
To start, I placed a top fold, black, A6 base card under the Uniko Confetti stencil and securing with a little bit of tape. To leave room for the sentiment, I masked off part of the stencil with some Post It tape, then inked over with Versamark and then carefully removed the mask. I chose some sparkly EP and heat embossed the confetti.
Using my MFT small alphabet dies, I cut out BIRTHDAY from some gold glitter paper and stamped the happy from the Happy Christmas in the Uniko Simply Said Christmas set  in Versamark and heat embossed with white EP.
I do like black and gold together, it always looks classy and is very celebratory!
So for more inspiration, please check out the rest of the STB team here and join us.
