Blogger's Challenge Friday!

Thank goodness it's Friday! What a crazy and exhausting week it has been for me! I'm glad that I could finally have a chance to stamp today for this week's Blogger's Challenge (a birthday card). It has been awhile, but I've made a card with only Stampin' Up products...can ya believe it...lol! I started with my little bird friend from the Pun Fun set. I inked him up with Black Stazon and stamped him onto watercolor paper. He's colored up with Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Not Quite Navy inks. I did a little piercing around the image too. The Old Olive panel is embossed with my Swiss Dots embossing folder in my 'Bug. I then added some Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon and I used some designer paper from the Summer Picnic pack. I need a birthday card for a little family friend of ours so hopefully he will like this one. Many of the ladies in the challenge group were able to play today as well, so when you have a chance, be sure to check out what they've done here. Thanks so much for stopping by today...Toodles!!! :D
