A Birthday Recipe

Happy Friday All!

Hope you had a great week! It's been a crummy rainy one here, but we've made the best of it with the kids on vacation. Looking forward to a relaxing weekend as well. Hope you have a great one too!

Today I only have one card to share and it fits both the challenges at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something. I had planned to create two separate cards as always, but after crafting for hours the other day, my mojo seems to be on vacation now too! But these two challenges work well together and you can do the same if you'd like to join in.

The challenge at Just Magnolia is to use a Magnolia image to create a birthday project. It can be a card or gift item, as long as you use a Magnolia and have the birthday theme you are good to enter! Our Just Magnolia sponsor this week is Jacobi Drachten!

And at Stamp Something we have a fun recipe challenge...a no calorie, fat free recipe too. Just use designer paper, ribbon, and button! You can use any quantity of each, so long as you have each item represented. We have a new special sponsor now at Stamp Something, Simon Says Stamp will be sponsoring one challenge every month, pretty cool huh! This week we have a $20 gift certificate up for grabs!

I got some new goodies in the mail the other day from Simon Says Stamp actually. They were having a great deal on shipping so how could I resist! I decided to use these new treats on this card. First, I started with the sketch from Papertake Weekly and used some new BG Lime Rickey papers and razzleberry and pink card stock. The edges have all been distressed a bit too. I think these papers are so fun, perfect for a cheerful birthday card!

I've also used a new Magnolia image, isn't she darling! She's from the Raise the Ceiling Collection and has been colored with Copics and accented with glitter. I embellished with some Prima flowers and aster daisies, ribbons, a flower button, and my new branch punch. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Oval Snippet Set and I used the tab punch and attached it to the image.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Cute Card Thursday: Ribbon-tastic
Cupcake Craft: Friends
Cute Daisy May: Flowers
Saturday Spotlight: Do the Mess Around
Simon Says Stamp: Vintage with Flowers

Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you have a fantastic weekend. Happy stamping! :)
