Whimsy Birthday Challenge

Hi All!

Hope your Monday is going well and the work day is over for you. I've had a busy day catching up from the long weekend. Hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July and had some fun! We never did see any fireworks, but the sun was shining so no complaints here!

I have a card to share today for the new challenge at Whimsy Stamps Challenges. This week our theme is anything birthdays! I also added in a couple other challenges with this card. My image is Whimsy Turtle, colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen and some Stickles.

The sketch/layout is from Lili of the Valley challenge. I love this sketch, very easy to use. My papers are SU! Bravo Burgundy and Baja Breeze with some patterned paper by Fancy Pants Designs. I stitched the edges with my sewing machine and also put some stitching on the ribbons to hold them together. I'm not the world's best seamstress, so my stitching isn't exactly straight! The stitching though fits with the challenge of a "Stitch in Time" from Cute Card Thursday. The final accents are some Prima flowers and button centers, which fit the button challenge at Charisma Cardz. And final the challenge at The Next Level is buttons and bows of which I have both. The sentiment is from SU! Short and Sweet.

Thanks for stopping by today, if you're up for a challenge, head on over to Whimsy Challenges and join us in our Birthday Challenge! Happy stamping! :)
