Happy 9th Birthday Uniko

Good morning, it's party time!
Uniko is celebrating its 9th Birthday today. I take my hat off to Bev for managing to keep the brand fresh all by herself, as well as being mom to two very active boys, especially over the last year! I haven't been on the team for all that time but I have been an admirer from the moment I found the designs.

A birthday wouldn't be a birthday without a party, now would it? Over the years its become a bit of a tradition to hold a linky party to celebrate.

To join in all you have to do is simply create a birthday card, any theme, any style and using any product you like and link it up via the linky on the Uniko site. You don't have to have a blog to enter, you can link your card from your Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest or like with all challenges, you can email Bev your entry.

You don't have to use Uniko products, but we'd love to see you using your Uniko stash (including Uniko Digital Freebies via the link on the blog or ones from Magazine Features), there's an extra opportunity to win a prize if you do.

So here is my birthday card to get the party started.

To start my design, I took a panel of MM paper and heat embossed in white, a row of 9 candles from the Big n Bold Wish stamp set.
Each candle was then coloured in rainbow colour order, using Zig markers. The flames were coloured  and a warm glow added with a wash of yellows. The rest of the panel was finished with a wash of Salty Ocean DI and dark blue Zig pen towards the bottom.
The sentiment, from Birthday Sentiments, stamped with Altenew's Pure Graphite ink, was then embossed with clear gloss EP. Using an MFT stitched rectangle, I die cut the painted panel and mounted it flat on to an A6 side fold note card from my stash.

There are some more fab birthday cards by the Brand Ambassadors over on the Uniko blog. Why not check them out and leave some love along the way for the chance to win a prize!
