Bloggers Challenge/Birthday

I have been absent for awhile from the blogger's challenge and I've missed them!!! I took a few minutes this week to create this card. This week our challenge was to make a birthday card which was easy as I needed to make one for an employee.


Stamp is Girlie Chick from Stampendous. I also used the Core'dinations Harborside paper from Storage Units, Inks and More from the Aqua Blues collection. I finally got to using my new swiss dots cuttlebug that I got from Lindsey's store. I also have been playing with the new nestabilities I've bought from UCutAtHome. The little birthday sentiment is from the Happy Date set by CTMH. I used basic black, pink passion, so saffron and Papertrey Ink paper for this card. My aquapainters are my new best friends and I'm finding I use them all too much, if there is such a thing!


Thanks for sticking with me as I took a little break from stamping, I'm back and looking forward to participating more!

What an adorable card! To answer your question about my monogram card. . .yes, I only used the wooden block for the small letters. I haven't tried them with the C45 stamper yet. :)
