The Card Concept #116- Pink Retro

It's time for another The Card Concept challenge! I created my card based on the inspiration photo below. I love the retro, musical feel to this picture! 

You can't go wrong with a birthday card featuring the classic "Happy Birthday" song, can you? My very clean and simple card today features a pop of colour mirroring the inspiration photo and plays on the music theme. 

On a panel of Yupo paper I created my design using alcohol inks and once dry, die cut with a large circle and adhered it to the white A2 card base. The sentiment was cut with black cardstock and a few sequins were scattered here and there. With a bunch of pre-made alcohol ink panels, you could easily make this card in a variety of colour ways. I love a good clean and simple card that is easy to mass produce! 

Head on over to The Card Concept blog to see how the rest of the team was inspired and what styles they used on their cards. Play along with us using any of the styles we highlight...I can't wait to see what you come up with! 

Ink: Alcohol inks (Ranger)
Dies: Large circles (Spellbinders); Musical Happy Birthday (Poppy Stamps)
Paper: white A2 base, black cardstock (Simon Says Stamp); Yupo (Legion)
Other: sequins (Pretty Pink Posh)


  1. This is fantastic, Marcie! I adore that background!!!! So gorgeous! Every time you post about your card classes at the library, I want to sign up. I wish I wasn’t so far away.
