Birthday Somethings

Happy Friday All!

Boy am I glad it's Friday and we are almost to another weekend. It's been a long and cold week here in NH. Now that it is Friday, we have a new challenge for you over on Stamp Something and this one is Birthday Somethings. We're challenging you to create a birthday themed project. It could be a card, a scrap book page, or some gift item, anything goes as long as it has something to do with birthdays.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Starving Artistamps and they have generously donated some awesome stamps for one lucky winner and are offer 20% off new orders from now until the 26th of January for all the Stamp Something readers. How cool is that! If you want a chance to win 2 stamp sets and 2 sentiment sets from the DoodleFactory line from Starving Artistamps, head over to Stamp Something and play along with this challenge. Be sure to have your entry posted by 7pm EST on Thursday, January 22nd!

Here's my card, I actually needed to make a birthday card for next week, so this challenge was perfect for me. My card needed to be masculine so I went with blues for the color combo. I got this sketch from a challenge site, but of course now I can't remember which one. All the papers and cardstock are Stampin' Up!.

The image is my Whimsy Seal, colored with Copic markers then cut out and adhered with foam tape to the embossed circle. I added a felt snowflake and rhinestone along with some ribbon for those final touches. The sentiment is also from Whimsy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping in, hope you'll find time to stamp something with us this week. Happy Stamping! :)
