Summer Time Happy Birthday


Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to enter the drawing for my blog candy. Click the picture on the side bar to read all the information. I will be drawing the winner tomorrow morning, so hurry before the chance is gone!

Ok, so for today's card I made a birthday card using more of the papers from My Mind's Eye that I used yesterday. These papers are so versatile because you can make a soft subtle card like I did yesterday or one that has fun summer colors like this one today.

My designed varied slightly from the original OWH sketch because my sentiment panel is a bit larger. I really wanted to use this Happy Birthday sentiment from OCL's "Say it Big" set. I also decided to use the large flowers instead of another stamped image.

A few challenges for today's card:

1. Card Cupids: Birthday Cards

2. Come and Get it Challenges: Anything Goes

3. Creative Inspiration: Summer

4. There She Goes: Summer

5. Stars and Stamp: Sketch

6. Craft Your Days Away: Summer

7. Designed 2 Delight: Buttons

8. Crafty Sentiments: Birthday

9. Stamps R. Us: Birthday
