A Bithday Something and A Sketch

Happy Friday Everyone!

Hope your day is off to a great start! I'm happy that another weekend is upon us and I'm looking forward to some family time. Today is a big day at our house, my little man turned 6! We'll be having a little family party later today, but before that, I have cleaning to do!

Today I have two DT cards to share with you. First is my card for this week's Stamp Something Challenge. This week, in honor of my son, we are having a "Birthday Somethings" challenge! Anything birthday related will work for this challenge. We have a new sponsor this week too and a special chance for you all to enter your creations for a chance at publication! Head on over to Stamp Something and check out all the details!

Stamp Something

My card uses a couple other challenges along with our birthday somethings challenge at Stamp Something. I started with the sketch from Sketch Saturday and paired that with some SU! Crushed Curry and Taken with Teal cardstock and some BasicGrey Lemonade papers. I don't know what I'm going to do when these papers are gone. I just love them!

The image on my card is one I got the other day from Mo's Digital Pencil. I just love the sweetness of this little girl's face and all the summery flowers. The image has been colored with Copics and framed with my circle nesties. This image fits the challenges at Cute Card Thursday and The Pink Elephant which were to do with summer.

I embellished this card with some Prima flowers and brads, grosgrain ribbon, and then a sentiment stamped on a tag created with my nesties. The ribbon fits this week's Whimsy Challenges to use ribbons.

Just Magnolia

This is my card for the Just Magnolia challenge. I'm joining the DT for a bit while Kim takes a break. I've been having a great time with these ladies and with these challenges! This week we have a sketch for you which the super talented Rach has created!

I've used more BasicGrey Lemonade papers and SU! cardstock in Razzleberry Red and Melon Mambo. I made this card a while ago and forget that it uses some of the same papers as in my SS card this week. So they match a bit! This little Tilda was stamped for me by my friend Vicki. She's been colored with Copics and highlighted with a gel pen and Spica gold glitter pen. I also added some flower soft to her little flower basket to create some texture.

The sentiment is a SU! one, although at the moment I can't remember which set it's from. I paper pierced the edges and dry embossed the circle piece with my CB. I also added a large Prima flower with a button center and some ribbon and a brad to finish this card off.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend and if you're up for some challenges, be sure to check out both Stamp Something and Just Magnolia this week! Happy Stamping! :)
