Happy B*earthday

Today is a challenge day here!  Remember last month my friend Sue asked a few blogger's if we'd like to play along with her for a monthly challenge?  Well, this month was my chance to host. 

When it came time to pick my images, it was such a tough task.  I mean, I design for some superb companies and have a wide range of their stamps, but I have a ton I never even use because I'm having too much fun with my designing.  So, I went out on a limb and picked a set I've used only a few times, but this stamp I chose had never been inked.  I thought it would be a lot of fun for the girls.

The supplies I sent out included:
 the ground hog image & sentiment  from Birthday Buddies from Paper Smooches 
Dish All the Dirt Brown, Old Olive, Confetti Cream cardstock with a piece of corkboard
an Enchanted Evening button along with some seam binding
a strip of Basic Grey Pyrus cardstock


This was a card I created for my sister-in-law for her birthday last month.  I completed my card immediately as I was picking out the supplies.  My stitching on my little sentiment tag didn't turn out like I wanted to but I just went with it.  I added some Viva Pearl Pen around the beaded squares and some glossy accents to the nose...I love how it turned out!

Check out what the other players blogs to see what they created using these same supplies:
