Happy Birthday Challenge Going Grey with Scrap-Creations

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! This is vacation week for me I am loving it. I am hoping to make lots of cards and I really need to clean and reorganize my craft area. Being creative is a messy process for me and I tend to leave a trail behind me. I am in trouble when there are piles everywhere and that is where I am now.

I am really loving using digital paper on my creations. I fell in love with this star paper from Bearly Mine Designs and knew it was perfect for a birthday card. Knowing that I loved this DP I bought the MFT star Die-namics to go with it. I also couldn't resist glittering the stars for some sparkle on the card. This cute digi is one of Mo Mannings that I love!

Being Tuesday it is also time for another fabulous challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we have a fun theme that everyone can play along with, BIRTHDAYS! How easy is this theme so come play with us this week. The ladies have made some gorgeous birthday cards to inspire your own birthday creations.

These are some other fantastic challenges that fit my card

Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #89-This is the fantastic sketch I used for my card. So many possibilities with this sketch!

Alota Rubber Stamps Challenge #53-This week the challenge is to use Nestabilities. I used 6 different Nesties on this card.

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 140-This week their challenge is "Birthday Wishes". I have lots to make cards for at this time of year.

beautiful blue colors, love the sparkly stars that match the paper, perfect combination with this cute little critter.

OMG 6 dies and 1 punch on the same card, that is one for the record books, Mary! He's adorable, and I love the sentiment. Eat Cake has got to be a great moto and solves a lot of problems (and only creates just one, but I've heard that calories don't count on your birthday so it's fine really!) Love the folded ribbon bow, and the glittered stars are fab. A great creation. Thanks for joining in with our die/punches theme at Incy Wincy this week. Hope to see you again next week. Annette xx
