A Whole Lotta Challenges Goin' On!

Yippee! It's Friday! When Friday rolls around, so does Blogger's Challenge (when I post on time, that is...lol!). This week, our challenge was Birthdays. I liked Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch so much that I decided to flip it and use it again for today's card. Then I happened to come across LeAnne's beautiful blog again and the Color Throwdown for this week (Elegant Eggplant, Baja Breeze, and Certainly Celery.) I just love this color combination! Everything seemed to go together so well in my mind, so I decided to combine all three challenges, and this is what I came up with.

All of the patterned papers are more retired ones from my Stampin' Up stash. My main image is from their Crazy for Cupcakes set and the sentiment is from the Short & Sweet set. I used a little button instead of the candle and then I added a bit of faux stitching to dress up the corners. Be sure to stop by the blogs of the others Ladies in the Blogger's Challenge group when you have a chance. I'm certain they have some wonderful birthday creations to share with you. Just click on the link in my right sidebar. Happy Friday Everyone! Thanks so much for visiting...Toodles! :D

Hi Kim! SO glad you are back and liked our color challenge! This is a great card---I think it would be good for a masculine birthday, as the colors are fun but not too "girly"!!! Thanks again for playing with us! :D I like your new photo, too!!! Cute!
